Pune: In response to requests from Bavdhan citizens regarding several demands like installation of noise barriers on service roads, resurfacing of roads and more the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) has scrutinized the demands and grievances & has assured to act on them soon.
Speaking to Pune Pulse, Jay Shah, Independent CA Practitioner & Resident of Bavdhan said, ” I am constantly complaining about the road-related issues to the NHAI for 3 to 4 years. Finally, on June 16, 2023, NHAI issued a letter where they have taken cognizance of all the issues like noise barrier installation and more.”
Manish Deo, Member of Bavdhan Citizens Forum said, “On the extended service road near Chandani Chowk, there are no sound barriers installed. Also, a lot of dust enters the area. Hence, I request immediate installation of sound barriers.”
As per information, the construction of integrated structures along with the development of other allied structures on both sides of Chandani Chowk Junction has been assured by the NHAI.
For the issue of installation of noise barriers on the Mumbai-Bangalore (Pune Bypass) Highway near Chandani Chowk, Pune on the extended service road, the NHAI is planning to circulate & open tender & bid has been invited from the competent authorities for its installation.
The resurfacing of the road near Chandani Chowk has not resurfaced for more than a decade. Only patchworks have been done from time to time which results in vibration in all the nearby buildings, the NHAI has said that a Network Survey Vehicle (NSV) survey has been done to identify the defects and roughness of the project stretch. The concessionaire of the project has been directed to take immediate action regarding the same.
An official from NHAI, requesting anonymity said, “We have listed all the issues given to us. We will soon resolve them.”
