PMC
The Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) has approved ₹426-crore for building the integrated infrastructure including the construction of a double-storey flyover, three grade separators and an underpass to resolve the traffic issues on the road. This happened after a year when the twin flyovers on Ganeshkhind Road at the Pune University junction and in front of E-Square theatre were demolished. The projects will be executed by the Pune Metropolitan Region Development Authority (PMRDA) as the flyovers were demolished by the authority after it was jointly decided to construct a two-storey flyover with the top floor for an elevated metro rail corridor to connect Hinjewadi to Shivajinagar and the first floor for vehicular traffic. As per the new plan, the flyovers will be constructed at ₹268 crore and PMRDA wants PMC to bear 50% of the cost and the remaining portion of the funds would be invested in the construction of underpass and the creation of allied integrated infrastructure. The metropolitan authority should incur the entire expenditure of constructing the new flyover as the earlier one has been demolished for the construction of an elevated metro rail route.
