The unfinished and muddy road in Sai Aura, Adarsh Nagar, Kiwale, posing a significant hazard to residents

Residents of Sai Aura, Adarsh Nagar, Kiwale, are struggling with dangerous road conditions that have been unresolved for years. The road leading to the society is incomplete and in poor shape, causing accidents and encouraging unsocial activities due to the lack of street lights. A new well has also appeared on the road, blocking the way. There are about 5000 residents living in the area who are seeking action from Pimpri Chinchwad Municipal Corporation.

In 2016, residents were promised a new road by the builders, who said it would be ready by 2017-2018. However, only half the road was completed by 2018. The road remains unfinished, and landowners have not taken any steps to fix it. The 60-70 meter road on both sides is muddy, with only a few meters of tarred road completed. Even this section has barricades put up by landowners, leaving the main road to the society’s entrance in a terrible condition.

The area is also dirty, with construction waste dumped along the road by builders. There are no street lights, making it even more dangerous. Despite sending many emails to the PCMC office over the past 2 to 3 years, there has been no response.

Because of this, residents have decided not to pay their property tax but still receive notices demanding payment. They are questioning how PCMC-approved files for new construction projects when the road has not been properly sanctioned.

“We had a meeting with Late Laxman Jagtap two years back, but no positive action was taken,” said a resident. “Gawade, the corporator for the Chinchwad-Chapekar Chowk area, is also one of the partners in Eden Spaces by Elysian Realty. Landowner Taras and Gawade are friends,” he further said. 

Last week, residents met with Member Of Parliament Maval Constituency Shrirang Barne, who promised to take up the matter with PCMC officials and start some progressive work since the monsoon is coming. However, no action has been taken yet.

Children are facing problems going to school, and people are struggling to reach their offices. “PCMC needs to take strict and immediate action on this issue,” urged another resident. “We need a safe and functional road as soon as possible.”
