To ensure the smooth flow of traffic during Somvati Yatra, District Collector Rajesh Deshmukh has issued an order to prevent any disruptions in Jejuri, located in Purandar taluka, on November 13.
Due to heavy traffic on the Pune-Pandharpur National Highway No. 956, heavy traffic from the Pune to Baramati route will be closed, and alternative routes will be provided on November 13 from 5 a.m. to 10 p.m.
Traffic diversion has been implemented at Jejuri Police Station in Pune Rural Limits. Heavy vehicles travelling from Satara, Phaltan, Lonand, and Baramati to Pune via the Jejuri-Saswad route are no longer allowed to pass through. Instead, they are being redirected to take the Nira-Morgaon-Supa route and then proceed to Kedgaon Chauphula via Solapur Highway No. 65, ultimately reaching Pune. On the other hand, traffic heading from Pune to Baramati is being rerouted through the Belsar-Kothale-Nazre-Supe-Morgaon road, leading them to Baramati.
Heavy vehicles travelling towards Pune via Jejuri from Baramati and Nira sides will experience a complete halt at Vadgaon Nimbalkar Police Station, Pune Rural Limits. As a result, traffic will be redirected from Solapur Highway No. 65 to Pune via Morgaon-Supa-Kedgaon Chauphula.
Traffic diversion has been implemented at Saswad Police Station in Pune Rural Limits. Heavy vehicles travelling from Pune to Phaltan-Satara via Jejuri are now facing a complete stoppage. Similarly, heavy vehicles heading towards Saswad-Narayanpur-Kapurhole via Saswad-Phaltan are being redirected to Lonand.
However, it is important to note that traffic restrictions will be relaxed for small vehicles participating in the Somvati Yatra’ on November 13.
