Pune: The Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) has decided to undertake re-asphalting of the service roads connecting Navle Bridge and Sinhagad Road on Dehu Road-Katraj bypass and the other roads adjoining the highway to ensure smooth vehicular traffic.

The service roads and  roads adjoining the busy bypass and Sinhagad Road were developed long back but the heavy traffic load increased during past few years due to construction of many housing societies. This increased the burden of vehicular traffic on the existing road infrastructure.

Pune: The Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) has decided to undertake re-asphalting of the service roads connecting Navle Bridge and Sinhagad Road on Dehu Road-Katraj bypass and the other roads adjoining the highway to ensure smooth vehicular traffic.

The service roads and  roads adjoining the busy bypass and Sinhagad Road were developed long back but the heavy traffic load increased during past few years due to construction of many housing societies. This increased the burden of vehicular traffic on the existing road infrastructure.

Commuters who stay in Katraj, Warje, Vadgaon Budruk, Dhayari and Sinhagad Road area use the service roads for getting to the bypass to go to their offices located in Hinjewadi, Shirwal, Pimpri-Chinchwad etc. The local residents also use the same service roads, which are also used by goods carrier vehicles. 
To improve the traffic situation, the PMC has chalked out a plan to re-asphalt the service roads of both sides of the bypass heading towards Bengaluru. The total cost of the work is Rs 1.8 crore. 

According to the PMC Road Department, the condition of the both service roads along the bypass is not good and needs a makeover. Considering the heavy traffic in the area, the project duration is 12 months and the defect liability period is three years.
