In order to prevent accidents and illegal parking, residents of areas that were merged into the Pune Municipal Corporation want the municipal body and the traffic police to clearly mark out designated parking bays along the roads.

Locals reported that traffic volume and vehicle movement were rising in combined areas as well. Vehicles were being parked haphazardly by the side of the road due to a lack of parking zone markings.

According to an activist, poor management and a scarcity of parking spaces caused traffic jams on numerous roads in Narhe, Ambegaon, and Dhayari. Traffic congestion frequently causes school buses to arrive late to their destinations. Traffic jams are being caused by the heavy movement of dumpers, concrete mixers, and construction site vehicles in merged areas.

Lately, the traffic police prohibited parking on different sections of the Pune-Ahmednagar highway near Wagholi.

Nothing had changed, according to a resident of Wagholi, even after the traffic police issued an appeal and roadside parking was prohibited. On many of the roads in the old city areas, parking is permitted on even and odd days by the Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) and traffic police. In merged areas, they implore the authorities to adopt a similar procedure.

In merged localities, new roads—including concrete ones—were being developed, according to PMC officials. Together with the traffic police, they will suggest modifications to the parking arrangement.
