Due to the ongoing installation of a metro girder at Veer Chaphekar Chowk, a temporary traffic diversion has been implemented to alleviate congestion in the Shivajinagar area.

New traffic route:

Vehicles travelling from Wakadewadi and Patil Estate (Madgulkar Underpass) must now follow the diversion via Simla Office Chowk to Wadi. This applies to all three-wheelers and four-wheelers. The new route has been enforced to reduce traffic blockages caused by the metro installation work.

Affected areas:

Prohibited Route: All three-wheelers and four-wheelers coming from Wakadewadi and Patil Estate on the Old Mumbai-Pune Highway are now banned from using the Madgulkar Underpass.

Alternative Route: Vehicles should now proceed to their desired destinations via the Sancheti Chowk route.

Authority and Implementation:

This change has been authorized by Rohidas Pawar, Deputy Commissioner of Police, Transport, Pune City, Shivajinagar.

The temporary traffic arrangement is effective immediately and will be reviewed as the metro construction progresses.

The aim of this traffic diversion is to ensure smoother traffic flow and minimize congestion in the affected areas, thereby enhancing overall traffic management and safety during the metro construction period.
