On Monday, the underpass connecting Kothrud to Mulshi, and a ramp connecting Bavdhan to Katraj were opened. This will help motorists to avoid the busy Chandani chowk junction. According to the civic officials on an average 16 lakh vehicles pass through this road everyday. NHAI claims that the road work is 90 percent complete and shall meet the deadline of May 1 to open the road completely for vehicular traffic.

Speaking about the recent developments, C S Krishnan, a member of Bavdhan Citizen Forum, stated, “The actual bridge at Chandani Chowk has not been inaugurated yet, but the roads leading to it, including the service road from Kothrud and Warje towards Bavdhan and Mulshi under the tunnel, and the bridge from Bavdhan towards Satara road, have been inaugurated to curb traffic congestion in the area.”
