Pune: Officials of the Pune Metropolitan Regional Development Authority (PMRDA) have started work on the Holkarwadi township. The  foundation stone laying ceremony was held recently by District Guardian Minister Girish Bapat. 

As Holkarwadi will be connecting to the 110-metre Ring Road, work of building the 24-metre wide road from Kanifnath Paytha to proposed Ring Road started recently.  Speaking on the occasion, Bapat said the township model has been implemented since the British era. “We have planned 15 town planning schemes (TPS) and we are also working on water storing capacity in the area,” added Bapat.

PMRDA Chief Kiran Gitte said that six lanes will be built on the road. “We are also in process of making provisions for drainage, water and electricity facility in the area,” added Gitte.

Minister of State for Water Resources Vijay Shivtare appreciated the efforts taken by PMRDA. Gitte said the Ring Road will pass through Vadki and Phursungi and so town planning schemes are necessary for the area. PMRDA officials said work will be completed in nine months’ time and budget of Rs 4.6 crore will be spent on it.
