Pimpri: Responding positively to the ‘Free Up Hinjawadi’ campaign launched by employees from IT companies, residents and entrepreneurs, government agencies have started taking action to ease daily traffic jams in Hinjewadi and adjoining areas.
Officials from the Pune Metropolitian Regional Development Authority (PMRDA), traffic police department, Maharashtra Industrial Development Corporation (MIDC) and politicians have also joined hands. The PMRDA has launched surveys of Maan-Pirangut Road and Nande-Chande Road on July 28 and several meetings have been scheduled to find a solution to the traffic problem.
Although the IT industry and its workforce will have to wait for some more time before major traffic issues are solved, their hopes are alive at least for now.
‘Free Up Hinjawadi’ campaign conveners Sudhir Deshmukh, Karamchand Garg and Sudesh Raje welcomed the positive approach of the government agencies. Raje said, “The District Guardian Minister called a meeting to discuss all the pending issues of Hinjawadi last week.
He expressed willingness to sort out the issues to people associated with ‘Free Up Hinjawadi’ campaign. We will suggest solutions to problems that the IT park is facing on various fronts.” The PMRDA authorities have also planned a meeting to discuss problems of the IT park next week.
The traffic branch of the Wakad police also held a meeting with traders and the housing society federation. They have taken their suggestions to solve problems of the area.
