Pimpri: Pimple Saudagar corporator Vitthal alias Nana Kate has made a suggestion to ease traffic at important locations in Pimpri Chinchwad. Kate has suggested that the number of air conditioned (AC) buses should be increased so that people working in IT companies use these buses instead of private vehicles.

It is seen that commuters using Sangvi-Kivale Road for travelling towards Pune city and those returning to Ravet face traffic snarls due to congestion during peak hours. Similarly, commuters travelling to Pimple Saudagar, Wakad and going towards Hinjawadi IT park are facing similar traffic jams these days due to ongoing work of flyover and grade separator at Jagtap Dairy Chowk. The traffic police have made several traffic diversions on this road. 

Kate said that if the number of buses go up, there will be a considerable drop in the number of vehicles on the road and the same will reduce the travelling time on these stretches. 

Kate said, “Shivar Chowk, Sai Chowk and Kaspate Chowk are worst affected forcing people to spend hours in traffic jams.” Increase in number of air conditioned buses by PMPML on this route will ease this problem significantly. Hence,  I have approached Chairman and Managing Director of PMPML with this demand. I have suggested that there should be a AC PMPML bus after interval of every three minutes.’’
