The road stretch between Kedari Petrol Pump and Nivedita Terrace society in Wanowrie has become risky for motorists as well as pedestrians. This stretch has become accident prone as rash driving by motorists is neglected.

Sahil Kedari, vice president, OBC Cell, Maharashtra state Congress in a letter written to the Deputy Commissioner of Police (traffic), Pune had demanded raised pedestrian way to control vehicular traffic. He said, “This road has become risky not just for motorists but most importantly for the pedestrians. Traffic Police and Pune Municipal Corporation should bring a solution to control the vehicular menace. Raised pedestrian on this road is the solution so that vehicles know when to curb the speed. I had written to the DCP Traffic Police office in May as well as June 2021. This year again in February 2022, I had sent a reminder to the office. On April 29, 2022 the road department has been informed to construct a raised pedestrian as well as install signage boards on this road.”

When Pune Pulse spoke to the junior engineer Kiran Kalashetti, road department, he said, “The work will happen soon on the road.”
