PCNTDA To Construct Three Flyovers
PUNE: The Pimpri Chinchwad New Township Development Authority (PCNTDA) has proposed to construct three flyovers to reduce traffic congestion on main roads in its limits.
Speaking to TOI, Suhas Divse, chief executive officer, PCNTDA, said that the three flyovers are proposed to be constructed at the Kalewadi phata junction, old Mercedes Benz junction and the Kudalwadi junction in Chikhli.
Divse said, ” PCNTDA has invited bids for the project to construct a flyover near the old Mercedes Benz junction. We are preparing the design of the flyover to be built at the Kudalwadi junction. We are still to appoint a consultant for the flyover at the Kalewadi phata junction.”
Divse also said that the authority was willing to provide land for police stations in various parts of the limits, if a proposal to this effect was given by the police.
He said, “MLA Vilas Lande has sought land for a police station in Bhosari and Wakad. I discussed the matter with Dnyaneshwar Chavan, deputy commissioner of police, Zone III. The proposals for land to develop police stations should come from the police.”
He said that the PCNTDA has acquired vast stretches of land in various parts of the Pimpri-Chinchwad township. Some of these were lying vacant and have not been developed, so the authority will construct compound walls to secure them and prevent encroachments.
A number of constructions have come up near the high tension electricity lines passing through the PCNTDA limits. We have repeatedly asked the MSEDCL to take action against such constructions and not to give them electricity connections, Divse said.
The work on widening of the spine road in Triveninagar has been stuck due to encroachments. Reacting to it, Divse said, “The stretch of the spine road where the widening work is stuck falls in the PCMC limits. The PCMC has to remove the encroachments and widen the road.”
