Pune, June 25, 2024: The Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) should prioritize the completion of the 36-meter link road in Baner-Pashan by taking the local residents into confidence and addressing civic issues promptly, instructed Higher and Technical Education Minister Chandrakantdada Patil.

Patil inspected and reviewed the ongoing municipal works in areas like Ivory Estate Road in Someshwarwadi, the installation of an STP plant on Kalamkar Nala in Baner, Balewadi High Street, and Wakad Bridge connection road. Pune Municipal Commissioner Dr. Rajendra Bhonsle, Deputy Commissioner Mahesh Patil, Chief Engineer of the Road Department Aniruddha Pawaskar, Superintendent Engineer Amar Shinde, and Deputy Commissioner of Zone 2 Ganesh Sonawane were present during the inspection.

The first phase of the Ivory Estate-Someshwarwadi Road work has been completed, and the pedestrian pathways, streetlights, and other tasks should be finished promptly. The land acquisition for the next phase should also be expedited. The delay in the 36-meter link road in Baner is causing inconvenience to the local residents. The PMC should commence the link road work soon after taking the locals into confidence. Tasks like land acquisition for the road and moving back the protective walls of housing societies should be done urgently, and police assistance should be sought for removing encroachments. A proposal should be submitted if funds are required.

Minister Patil inspected the sewage management project at Kalmakar Nala in Ganraj Chowk, Baner. Noting the inconvenience caused to nearby residents by the water flowing through the nala, he directed that the tender process for the STP be completed swiftly and work commenced.

During the visit, Minister Patil interacted with local residents on the link road to understand their difficulties. Issues related to water supply, garbage, and faulty sewer lines should be resolved immediately. He suggested that weekly meetings should be held in the regional office of the PMC to review such works.

Minister Patil also directed that the work on the High Street road in Balewadi be completed immediately. He instructed the municipal commissioner to hold meetings with the landowners, resolve their issues, acquire the land, and expedite the road work.
