Pimpri, 4th November 2023: In a bid to alleviate reduce traffic jams in Pimpri-Chinchwad city, heavy vehicles have faced temporary restrictions. The police have been actively enforcing the ban, resulting in action taken against 6,178 heavy vehicles and the collection of a fine totaling 61 lakh 71 thousand rupees during the period from October 16 to November 1.

Pimpri-Chinchwad city, encompassing regions such as Chakan, Bhosari, Talegaon Industrial Areas, Hinjawadi, Talawade, Chikhali, Information and IT Park area, Dehu, and Alandi pilgrimage areas, hosts the city’s largest market in Pimpri. The presence of a substantial number of heavy goods-carrying vehicles in this area has contributed to daily traffic congestion and an uptick in accidents.

To address these concerns, the Pimpri-Chinchwad Traffic Branch has imposed restrictions on heavy vehicles from 8 AM to 11 AM and 5 PM to 9 PM. Any violations of these restrictions prompt immediate action. Moreover, the traffic police are now keeping a close eye on other traffic infractions, including overloading of two-wheelers, unapproved bus stops, noisy exhaust systems, and vehicles traveling in the wrong direction.
