Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray on Thursday said there should be a single planning authority for Mumbai, which now has multiple planning agencies executing various projects. Thackeray reviewed several ongoing and upcoming projects in Mumbai and shared his ideas for “Mumbai 2030 vision” plan during a visit to the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC).
Taking forward the announcement of setting up a world-class aquarium in the city, Thackeray directed the BMC commissioner to upgrade the Taraporewala Aquarium on Charni Road by adding an underground aquarium extending up to the sea. Shiv Sena’s Ameya Ghole, who is the health committee chairman, said a feasibility study will be carried out for expansion of the existing aquarium.
Some other projects that were suggested by Thackeray were ‘Night Safari’ in Aarey Milk Colony in Goregaon, a museum on the lines of Madame Tussauds and street-fairs.
