Four days ago, former MLA Vinayak Mete passed away in an accident on the Pune-Mumbai Expressway. Turns, ghat roads, and tunnels on this highway have increased the number of accidents due to many reasons like vehicle speed and carelessness. Also, travel on this highway is becoming dangerous as many road development jobs are pending.

The corporation has also demolished the dangerous Amrutanjan bridge on the highway. However, various problems, including traffic congestion, persist. Against this background, various measures will be taken by the Road Department.

“Additional police personnel have been increased to deal with accidents, mishaps and traffic jams on the Pune-Mumbai Expressway. Six sumo cars, patrol squads, delta force, 12 two-wheelers and other personnel of MSRDC are deployed at various stages to provide immediate assistance in case of emergency. Crowd locations have been determined. The traffic police and an employee of MSRDC will be deployed, while the police have been instructed to take punitive action against the violators,” informed Rakesh Sonawane, Executive Engineer of the corporation.

Several efforts have been made by the Roads Department to stop accidents. Although penal action has been taken against reckless drivers, the series of accidents has not stopped. Also, since the ghat road of the highway is prone to cracks, protective nets, concrete walls, diagonal tow-rope, shotcrete, and gabion walls have been installed to prevent the recurrence of previous accidents. The Roads Department also said that caution boards have been installed on both sides of the highway to give forewarning of the dangerous places between the highways and the turns that are likely to cause accidents.
