Maharashtra govt to invest Rs 6 trillion on state infrastructure

In order to give the state a much-needed facelift, the Maharashtra government is planning a significant renovation of the state's infrastructure, including airports, ports, expressways, and railway networks. This project is expected to cost somewhere between 5-6 trillion. The War Room, which Devendra Fadnavis created when he first became chief minister in 2014, is back in action with bigger intentions.

One of the upcoming projects is to build an expressway grid with 6–8 lanes that connects the state's districts. Nine new expressways are being developed, one of which will be the eight-lane Pune-Nashik Expressway. These nine expressways could cost as much as Rs 2.35 billion.

A six-lane expressway between Mumbai and the Konkan region, estimated to cost Rs 800 billion, is also being planned by The War Room. It will run from Pen in Panvel to Sawantwadi in Sindhudurg. According to those involved in the planning of the Mumbai-Konkan Expressway, the new expressways would be straight roadways cutting across all coastal districts in place of the current lengthy, twisting routes connecting Mumbai and Konkan.
