Lonavala, 22nd February 2024: In a move aimed at enhancing safety measures, the installation of gantry on the Mumbai-Pune Expressway is scheduled to take place tomorrow from 12 noon to 2 pm. The designated location for the installation is at km 39/900 in the Borghat area under the Intelligent Traffic Management System (ITMS) project.

The MSRDC has informed the public that all traffic heading towards Mumbai will be temporarily halted during this period to facilitate the smooth installation of gantry. This interruption applies to all types of vehicles, and heavy vehicles will be specifically diverted to the Urse toll road and the shoulder lane.

The alternative route for cars, during the installation phase, is advised to be from km 55 Lonavla exit towards Mumbai via Old Pune Mumbai Highway – Anda Point – Magic Point – Shingroba Ghat – Indira Chowk Khopoli. This diversion is implemented to minimize inconvenience for commuters during the installation process.

Over the past few days, intermittent blocks have been implemented to carry out the installation work on the Mumbai-Pune Expressway, causing some disruption for citizens traveling on this route.

Considering the daily influx of millions of passengers on the Mumbai-Pune Expressway, with many commuting for work between the two cities, commuters planning to use this route are advised to avoid traveling between 12:00 PM and 2:00 PM tomorrow. Alternatively, the road administration and traffic police recommend utilizing alternative routes during this period.
