Pune: In light of the Sadhu Vaswani Bridge's reconstruction, the Pune Traffic Police has implemented temporary traffic modifications in Bund Garden and Koregaon Park starting of February 24. Further information from Pune Traffic Police indicates that the Pune Municipal Corporation would dismantle and rebuild the existing Sadhu Vaswani bridge due to its weakness and increased traffic safety. 

Until the Sadhu Vaswani bridge is demolished and rebuilt, there may be traffic jams in the Bund Garden and Koregaon Park traffic locations. Consequently, in order to maintain smooth traffic in the designated regions, the following modifications are being implemented on a trial basis starting on 24/2/2024 and continuing until further orders.

  • Cars traveling via Mor Odha Chowk, Council Hall Chowk, Mangaldas Chowk, Bund Garden Road, Mahatma Gandhi Udyan Chowk, and Koregaon Park will all be reached by turning right at these points.

Vehicles traveling to Koregaon Park from Pune Station will pass through:

  • Alankar Chowk at Pune Station is to the left of Jahangir Chowk, and Mangaldas Chowk is to the right.

  • At Kahur Road Junction, turn left to reach Tarapur Road Junction. At Tarapur Road, turn right. Finally, turn right from Blue Line Chowk to Council Hall Chowk.

The Sadhu Vaswani Bridge, which links Koregaon Park with the cantonment area, is about to be demolished by the Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC). Even though a new bridge will be built in its place and this one is scheduled for demolition, the procedure should be completed soon. There are now only two lanes on the bridge, which causes frequent traffic problems. The PMC has therefore made the decision to build a four-lane flyover in its place.
