Laxmi Road, Bajirao Road, and Shivaji Road are among the central areas where there has been heavy traffic over the past few days.
There are significant traffic jams on all major roads and side streets, according to a local vendor. They are seeing widespread instances of illegal parking on sidewalks and roads, even in the presence of law enforcement. At the very least, temporary parking should be available after the festival.
Many people are parking their cars on Tilak Bridge, Balgandharva Bridge, Riverside Road, and other bridges, according to a customer. In place of the current PMC-run lots, multi-layer parking lots must be developed in the city’s central areas.
