Commuters travelling between Mumbai and Pune continue to face significant delays on Friday as well due to heavy congestion on the Mumbai-Pune Expressway, particularly in the vicinity of Lonavala. The situation has been exacerbated by heavy vehicles blocking all lanes, causing traffic to come to a standstill.

The congestion has prompted authorities, urging commuters to avoid the Mumbai-Pune Expressway. Delays are expected to persist for several hours, even into the afternoon, as traffic remains at a standstill.

In addition to the traffic snarl, concerns have been raised about the intense summer heat, with temperatures soaring to 40°C in Khandala today. The high temperatures increase the risk of clutch plates burning as the pressure on engine grows, posing a potential hazard to vehicles on the road.

Efforts are underway to alleviate the traffic congestion and restore normalcy to the Mumbai-Pune Expressway. In the meantime, commuters are urged to prioritize safety and adhere to traffic regulations while travelling.
