Pune, 24th May 2023: The Pune Metropolitan Region Development Authority (PMRDA) is nearing the completion of the comprehensive project report for the ring road, marking a significant milestone in the development of the city’s infrastructure.

The proposed ring road, which spans a total length of 128 kilometers, will feature fifteen flyovers, two railway flyovers, and five tunnels. PMRDA has submitted land acquisition proposals for the initial five-kilometer stretch between Solu, Nirgudi, and Vadgaon Shinde near Lohegaon to the district administration, signaling progress in the project’s first phase.

Ramdas Jagtap, the Public Relations Officer and Deputy Collector of PMRDA, stated, “The detailed project report (DPR) for the ring road has reached its final stage. In the initial phase, the five-kilometer stretch between Solu and Vadgaon Shinde will be prioritized, and land acquisition proposals for this segment have been submitted to the district administration. The revised cost of the ring road has also been recently approved.”

However, challenges are expected to arise during the land acquisition process, particularly due to existing constructions along the proposed route. These obstacles, along with other factors, may contribute to an increase in project costs. PMRDA has acknowledged the opposition to the ring road and the government’s reluctance to provide funding.

The proximity of the existing ‘MSRDC’ ring road, which is approximately 110 meters wide and runs 15 kilometers away from the proposed ring road, has prompted a decision to reduce the width of the new road.

PMRDA has obtained state government approval for the construction of a 65-meter wide ring road, and a consulting company has been appointed to prepare the project report. The survey work and report preparation have now reached the final stages, according to PMRDA.

Key aspects of the proposed ring road include the following:
Eight phases of construction
Fifteen flyovers, two railway flyovers, and five tunnels
Total length of 128 kilometers, with PMRDA responsible for approximately 88 kilometers and the remaining 40 kilometers falling under MSRDC’s jurisdiction
The Municipal Corporation will oversee the construction of the 5.70-kilometer stretch passing through its jurisdiction.

In the first phase, the focus is on developing the five-kilometer stretch between Solu and Vadgaon Shinde. Land acquisition proposals for this segment have been prepared and forwarded to the District Collector for approval. PMRDA has expressed its intention to initiate the land acquisition process for this area promptly.

The recent approval of PMRDA’s budget by the Maharashtra state government also includes the endorsement of the ring road improvement expenditure, amounting to approximately Rs 14,000 crores. A significant portion of this budget, around Rs 5,800 crores, is expected to be allocated for land acquisition.
