The standing committee of the Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) has given the nod to construct a flyover at the busy Nalstop chowk and it will be part of the proposed metro corridor from Vanaz to Ramwadi.

The PMC has suggested minor changes to Maha metro in its metro design at the Nalstop chowk and has merged the upcoming flyover in the same project. As per the new design, the metro will pass above the flyover at this chowk. 

The standing committee chairman Murlidhar Mohol said that the PMC had planned a flyover at this busy chowk and since the metro will pass through this road, instead of carrying out the work with different agencies, it has been decided to hand over the construction to Maha metro. 

The Nalstop Chowk is the second busiest spot in the city after the University chowk. Keeping this in mind and to decongest traffic at the chowk, the municipal corporation had planned a flyover and the standing committee had made the budgetary provisions for the same. 

Also, the metro corridor between Vanaz and Ramwadi will pass from the same spot. Thus, the PMC decided to merge this flyover in the metro project as there would be no duplication of work and it will save time as well as money. 

The PMC will bear the cost of the flyover and it would be handed over to the Maha metro. The PMC is preparing a detailed plan for the flyover and jotting down its estimate. After the detailed plan is ready, it would be handed over to Maha metro and they will merge it in their plan. 

Meanwhile, a metro station is also coming up near SNDT College and so, Maha metro will need to make some minor changes in the design. They will need to change the location of the metro station. The flyover will pass from below the metro corridor and end near Garware College, said PMC officials.

Auditorium clean-up

The standing committee of the PMC appointed private agencies to clean toilets at five auditoriums. After the Marathi actor, Mukta Barve, raised the issue of cleanliness in auditoriums recently, PMC took the matter seriously and appointed private agencies to clean it. Standing committee chairman Murlidhar Mohol said that the committee had given the nod to appoint private agencies to clean up five auditoriums including Balgandharva and Yashwantrao Chavan auditorium.
