Pune, 3rd December 2022: The traffic police have banned heavy vehicle movements from Undri Chowk to Kadnagar Chowk and from Jyoti Hotel to Pargenagar junction in Kondhwa on an experimental basis from 6 am to 12 pm and from 4 pm to 9 pm from Wednesday for 15 days.
Police Inspector, Rajendra Shelke, said, “The highway would be congested for the upcoming days. But the new rule will be followed by drivers. We have also requested PMC for the installation of signs indicating the prohibited hours for heavy vehicles, which will help us better control the flow of traffic. Drivers should exercise restraint so that there isn’t traffic on the limited roads.”
Heavy vehicles are banned to pass from Bishop School, NIBM Road to S M Ghule Patil Chowk, Ishrat Baugh, and Orchid Palace housing society.
According to a local, “Heavy vehicles traveling to NIBM Chowk frequently break down on the gradient on NIBM-Undri road, resulting in huge traffic jams.”
Adequate arrangements have been made for the diversion of heavy vehicles from NIBM Road, Ishrant Baugh, Kadnagar, and Bishop School through an alternate route.
