Pimpri Traffic: Police Suggest Permanent Road Divider On Indira Gandhi Flyover
PUNE: The traffic police have expressed the need to build a permanent road divider on the Indira Gandhi flyover at Pimpri to prevent people from flouting the one-way rule on its approach roads.
A letter asking the Pimpri-Chinchwad Municipal Corporation (PCMC) to build the road divider will be sent shortly, said Manoj Patil, deputy commissioner of police (traffic).
Patil stated that the letter will be sent once the traffic police make an announcement about the one-way restrictions being permanent. He said that local residents had objected to the one-way plan in the first few weeks of July.
The traffic police began implementing the one-way on a trial basis at the beginning of July to reduce traffic congestion. The police put up barricades to enforce the one-way, due to which motorists coming from Chinchwad or Morwadi on the Pune-Mumbai highway have to take a detour via the Ambedkar junction.
People coming from Bhatnagar have to take a detour via the Ahilyabai Holkar junction to reach the hotel Gokul junction. However rickshaw drivers and two wheeler riders have moved the barricades aside to create gaps so that their vehicles can pass through them.
