PMRDA commissioner Rahul Mahiwal, said, “Pre-engineering work, survey of utility with utility trenching for identification is underway. We will conduct a traffic-related meeting next week and post that, further course of action will be decided.”

Rahul Srirame, DCP traffic hinted that there are meetings almost every week to expedite the work. “This chowk has traffic from Aundh, Baner and Pashan, hence we need to ensure smooth traffic flow when the foundation work for the bridge begins,” he said.
