Pune: Member of Parliament Supriya Sule along with District Collector Naval Kishor Ram, Guardian Minister Girish Bapat and PMRDA Chief Kiran Gitte visited Hinjawadi area along with officials of PWD and MIDC to inspect the pending road work on Monday.
The Hinjawadi IT Park Residents’ Welfare Association (HIRWA) has appealed to the administration to complete all the incomplete work on a war footing. Residents and IT professionals have been facing a harrowing time during monsoons due to the incomplete roads, encroachments on roads and bad road conditions since last several years.
Sudhir Deshmukh, member of HIRWA, said, “The main work includes Mahalunge to Hinjawadi Phase 1 highway, Nande-Chande approach road, the road from Pashan to Susgaon and Wakad chowk to Hinjawadi Phase 1. The authorities had earlier given three deadlines including December 2017, March and May 2018 for completing the road work. But still the work has not been completed. Now in monsoon, the road conditions will be more pathetic.”
Ravindra Sinha, a member of HIRWA, said, “We are fed up due to the delay of the work. The authorities always give deadlines but the work is not completed by them. Now again around three lakh commuters to Hinjawadi have to suffer due to the bad road conditions. Several accidents will take place and no one will take responsibility for it. Now we have to take a serious decision on it.”
Commenting on the issue, Sule said, “In today’s survey, the Mahalunge-Nande road is taken into priority. Then the other roads will be looked upon. We are in continuous follow-up with MIDC and PMRDA.”
Kiran Gite said, “The residents of Hinjawadi are demanding seven to eight roads and service lanes. By October or December, the incomplete projects will be completed.”
