In order to reduce traffic on Ganeshkhind Road, the Pune Metropolitan Region Development Authority (PMRDA) has constructed almost 80% of the alternate road on the Agriculture College campus. However, residents will need to wait until the end of March to use this road.

The PMRDA suggested a different route for commuters heading to Aundh because the Agriculture College administration would not permit traffic to be diverted from Ganeshkhind Road via the college’s internal roads. On February 14, the PMRDA commenced construction of the alternative route on the Agriculture College campus. Approximately 80% of the seven-meter road intended for two, three, and four-wheelers has been completed.

According to a PMRDA official, work is underway on a road to alleviate traffic along the Ganeshkhind Road stretch. About 80% of the road work has been finished. For safety purposes, walls on both sides of the road must be demolished. Layers of asphalt are being laid on the road. To provide commuters with an alternative route to the Aundh area, it has been decided to open the road to traffic on March 31.

The route from Agriculture College’s Wakdewadi gate to Range Hill metro depot, situated alongside the Pune Metro line and leading to the adjacent Range Hills underpass, is where commuters heading from Shivajinagar to Aundh or Hinjawadi will need to go in order to follow the proposed diversion plan. The goal is to reduce traffic congestion for commuters heading to Range Hills, Bopodi, and Khadki.
