Pune city is gearing up for significant traffic changes starting May 4, with girder lathing work near Simla Office Chowk in Shivaji Nagar area. These changes aim to alleviate the ongoing traffic congestion that has been plaguing the city recently. However, it’s essential for the commuters to plan their routes accordingly and be mindful of the altered traffic regulations to avoid inconvenience.

Key alterations include:

• Veer Chafekar Chowk to N.T.Wadi K.B. Joshi Marg Chowk route will become one-way for all vehicles.

• Closure of the road entry from Veer Chafekar Flyover to Shimla Office Chowk.

• Closure of the road leading to Simla Office Chowk from Veer Chafekar Chowk via Fergusson College Road.

• Closure of the entrance from Nata Wadi Chowk to Chafekar Chowk.

• Closure of the entry from Barve Chowk to Shimla Office Chowk to Shivajinagar Railway Station.

• Closure of access from Shivajinagar Railway Station ST stand circle to the wadi.

• Vehicles heading from Shimla Chowk to Pune University L.I.C. Chafekar flyover should use the side route.

• Implementation of no-parking zones for all vehicle types on Veer Chafekar Chowk to N.T.Wadi Chowk to Shimla Office Road.

While these changes may initially cause some disruption, they are ultimately intended to improve the overall traffic situation in Pune and enhance the city’s transportation infrastructure for the benefit of all its residents.
