Pune: Early on Saturday morning, a cargo container overturned at Raj Bhavan, causing traffic jams on Baner, Aundh Road, close to University Chowk. The event caused traffic disruptions for local school buses and office goers. Traffic from Bremen Chowk had to be diverted towards Bopodi, while the flow of traffic from Sangvi to the university had to be stopped. The square in front of Savitribai Phule Pune University saw severe traffic congestion as a result of the overturned container.
