Pune Takes A Relook At Urban Roads; Redesigns To Decongest Them
The Pune Municipal Corporation launched Urban Street Design Guidelines for areas falling under the city limits in 2016. These set ground rules were formed to ensure appropriate street types and street designs. Two years into the program, Pune has won accolades from the experts as well as the central government for executing the project. So far, work on the JM Road, Bhonde Colony and the Tilak Road have been completed while the congested stretches of the Laxmi Road, the Bajirao Road and the Kumthekar Road are next in the queue.
