Pune, 4th May 2021: The Standing Committee of the Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) approved to demolish the pedestrian bridge in front of SNDT College on Karve Road.
The bridge was creating a hindrance to the work of the Pune Metro. This decision came after when flyover construction started at Nal Stop Chowk and this bridge was creating hurdles for the ongoing metro project. The bridge will now be relocated in front of the COEP hostel.
To cater to the huge traffic on Karve Road this pedestrian bridge was constructed so that people can cross the road from college to the other side of the road. It was one of the first pedestrian bridges to be built in Pune. But now at this place, the Pune Metro work has begun. And flyovers will also be constructed so it was decided by the standing committee to demolish the bridge.
