PUNE: In a relief for these areas that were merged with the Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) between 2018 and 2021, the civic body has decided to develop six new roads in Mundhwa and Kondhwa on a public-private partnership (PPP) basis. The proposed roads in Mundhwa and Mohammadwadi areas are estimated to be 7.5 km long and cost around Rs162 crores.

The proposal was placed before the standing committee and green-lighted by municipal commissioner Vikram Kumar, civic officials confirmed on Wednesday. The civic body will build these roads through credit note, the officials said. Road department officer V J Kulkarni said, “The PMC had adopted the PPP policy and the general body had approved it earlier. As per this policy, the PMC will issue a credit note to the developer. The PMC will handover the land and the developer will construct the road.” Earlier in 2019, the PMC had decided to build roads on a PPP basis and elected members had given their nod to the policy.

Work on some roads at Kharadi, Mohammadwadi, Mundhwa, Baner, Kondhwa and Bibwewadi areas is already underway. Whereas the six new roads have been proposed between Mohammadwadi and Ramwadi and towards Mundhwa railway station among others. Some of these areas were merged with the PMC between 2018 and 2021 even as residents have been complaining about the lack of basic amenities, made worse by the property boom witnessed by these areas and the attendant rise in population.
