Pune, 13th June 2024: The Bhoomipujan for the proposed Ring Road by the Maharashtra State Road Development Corporation (MSRDC) is likely to take place before the Vidhan Sabha elections. The Maharashtra State Government plans to initiate the project by conducting the Bhoomipujan before the Vidhan Sabha’s code of conduct comes into effect, ensuring uninterrupted progress. Preparations are currently underway.

To address traffic congestion in Pune and Pimpri-Chinchwad, MSRDC has undertaken a 172 km, 110-meter wide ring road project, divided into East and West sections. The Eastern route will pass through Maval (11 villages), Khed (12 villages), and Haveli (15 villages), while the Western route will affect Bhor (3 villages), Purandar (5 villages), Haveli (11 villages), Mulshi (15 villages), and Maval (6 villages) talukas. Land acquisition for 644 hectares in 31 out of 34 villages on the Western route is complete, with Rs. 2975 crores disbursed.

The Housing and Urban Development Corporation Ltd. (HUDCO) has financed Rs. 10,000 crores for the Western route land acquisition. The Maharashtra State Government allocated Rs. 10,519 crores in the interim budget for Eastern route land acquisition. The Pune District Administration has finalized the acquisition in Khed and Haveli talukas.
