Recently, the civic body conducted a survey on 22 roads across the city and found that there are 40 objects which are obstructing the traffic on main roads. Mainly Maharashtra State Electricity Distribution Company Limited (MSEDCL) feeders, DP and transformers are creating hurdles on the roads.

Vikas Dhakane, PMC additional commissioner, said, we will shift these objects to ease traffic in the areas.

“As the number of vehicle have increased, the civic body undertook road widening on several roads. But several electric poles, DP and transformers remained on the same spots which are now blocking the traffic,” he said.

The PMC electric department will carry out the work. A budget was not allotted for the same so funds from road department will be used for the work, said officials.
