The department plans to implement the integrated traffic management system (ITMS) on the highway stretch and will forward the report to the state transport department after inspecting the road.

Four persons, including a minor, were charred to death after a truck carrying ground flour collided with two vehicles and caught fire near Navale Bridge Swami Narayan Temple on the Pune-Mumbai highway on Monday.

Bhor said, “We have been implementing road safety measures on this stretch along with other governing agencies since last three years. Yesterday’s accident was unfortunate, but our team inspected the spot to find the cause of mishap. Our report will be submitted to the state transport department. We are in discussion to implement the ITMS system on this stretch to curb accidents.”

The Maharashtra state transport department had given a proposal to the state government in August 2023 to install the ITMS system on all the nine major highways. The Maharashtra State Road Development Corporation (MSRDC) has recently completed the ITMS project on the Pune-Mumbai Expressway.
