A road was newly constructed in Mohammadwadi which goes from Dorabjee Paradise to Marvel Sangria. However, citizens say that the trees at the side of the road are getting choked due to cement at the barks of the trees.

As per further information from X handle of user Khaikhasroo Irani “Pathetic planning of road work linking Marvel Sangria. They have cemented the barks of 50-year-old trees. How will rain water reach their roots.”

Several netizens have actively commented on this.

An X user says “Don’t worry PMC will float separate tenders for watering these plants through tunnels.”

Another X user said “Many spots in Wakad (PCMC) too, contractor doing blind job to keep things simple for themselves. PMC, kindly help to solve these problems as a whole across all contractors. How are they rewarded to execute project and why no on ground inspection happening? Or they r ignored?”

Another X user commented “Trees will soon die and open up space for more development aka corruption.”

Another X user comments “This inspection team and construction team never studied in a School or they have never heard of Science subjects.”

Another X user tweeted “This city is going to the dogs. PMC and the local authorities are ruining everything that was good once upon a time in Pune. For eg, see the Citadel Road. Destroyed.”

Another X user tweets “It’s Pune roads! Not meant to last for even a year. 100% it will be dug up for a pipeline. How else will the contractor make money!!”

Another X user tweets “What is wrong with the people in PMC? Everywhere they seem to be in a hurry to cement things, leaving no space for water to seep into the soil, most places the last few meters are not completed, shoddy work… something is terribly wrong.”

Another X user tweeted “Thats the plan!! Water don’t reach roots, and tree dies off. In rainy season: water puddle everywhere. So, more road contracts. In summer: no water, so, water tanker contracts!! People learning to increase GDP.”

Speaking to Pune Pulse, Parveen Tambe, Founder Member, NIBM Undri Residents’ Forum, said “I have spoken to the PMC & the contractor regarding this. They have assured that they will create 1-foot-deep pits around the trees & keep the space around the trees open. I am constantly following up regarding this with the PMC. This work is lined up, which will be done. Along with this, drainage chamber work & other minor works are lined up. All will be done within some days.”

Gautam Gavand, PMC Road Department Official, said “The workers have been given instructions to immediately do the work where 1 to 1.5 feet open space will be left around all trees.”
