PCMC To Demolish Chapekar Memorial Tower To Ease Flyover Construction

PUNE: The Pimpri-Chinchwad Municipal Corporation (PCMC) will start demolition of the Chapekar memorial tower at Chapekar chowk in Chinchwadgaon on August 25 to clear the hurdle in construction of a flyover.
In 2004-05, the PCMC had proposed to construct a rotary flyover here which would have had left the Chapekar statue tower in the middle. But, later, the PCMC decided to construct a normal flyover at the spot at the cost of Rs 21 crore.
Chapekar chowk located at Chinchwadgaon is one of the busiest chowks in Pimpri-Chinchwad township. Seven roads meet at the chowk. It has vegetable markets, municipal schools, PCMC Zone B office, post office, commercial offices and interior designer residential buildings located around the chowk leading to heavy movement of vehicles and people throughout the day.
