Pune: In order to improve connectivity, communication, and public safety along the 95-kilometer Mumbai-Pune Expressway, the Maharashtra State Road Development Corporation Ltd. (MSRDC) has partnered with Vi, a major telecom operator. In order to enable direct connection between commuters and the state highway police control room during emergencies, this exclusive arrangement calls for the installation of emergency calling booths every two kilometers, supported by Vi's network.
