Pune, November 13, 2022: Slow traffic in the city of Pune is a result of the constant influx of automobiles on the roads. The Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) opted to utilize the existing main highways by constructing the intermediate ring road by linking the missing connections and the Development Plan (DP) roads to alleviate the persistent problem of congestion.
The local body chose to engage a consultant to perform a traffic feasibility analysis and create a land acquisition plan, along with a full project report (DPR). The PMC chose to fix the problem by blocking the broken links. The PMC decided to hire experts to build intermediate ring roads by filling the gaps on 25 major routes in the city based on research. It will immediately become an intermediate device if we connect these connectors.
The PMC has found a way to fill in the 390 holes in the city’s 273.22 km of roads. The lengths of missing road connectors range from 100-200 meters to 2-3 kilometers. An estimate of the cost of the project is Rs. 1,800 crores.
The civic organization recently surveyed the city’s freeways to identify missing connecting roads with the help of MIT College students. The study was conducted taking into account the RP (regional development plan) and DP (development plan) of the villages included in the municipal boundaries.
