Pune Ring Road | Pune

Pune city is noted to have maximum number of two-wheelers in the state followed by Thane. The registered annual growth rate of vehicles in Pune was 9.56% mentioned by Pune RTO in 2013. The city is at the confluence of 3 National Highways namely NH 4, NH 50, and NH 9 which brings regional traffic into the city. To decongest this traffic and ensure smoother traffic flow, the Pune and Pimpri Chinchwad Municipal Corporations collectively proposed the Pune Ring Road. Accordingly, necessary changes are being made in the development plan of the city as well. The Pune Metropolitan Regional Development Authority (PMRDA) will execute this major infrastructure project which will stretch across 128 kms. It will connect areas such as Wagholi, Shirgaon, Khamgaon and Patharwadi.

Ring Road – Latest News as of January 2018

Last updated on February 8, 2018 by Manish Kumar

The Pune Ring Road is one of the most important infrastructure projects, proposed in the city of Pune in recent times. Expected to serve as a major booster to the growth of the city and also divert inter-city traffic from passing through city limits, this road has had a rather chequered history. Recent developments related to this road seem to bear this out. The Pune Ring Road is to cover a total distance of 128 km and is expected to cost Rs. 13,315 crore to complete. It is to come up in 3 phases. The first phase, linking Satara Road in the south of the city to Ahmadnagar Road in the north-east, has in December 2017 received an allocation of Rs. 1,500 crore from the Union Government’s National Highway Authority.

Ring Road – Latest News as of January 2018

The Pune Ring Road is one of the most important infrastructure projects, proposed in the city of Pune in recent times. Expected to serve as a major booster to the growth of the city and also divert inter-city traffic from passing through city limits, this road has had a rather chequered history. Recent developments related to this road seem to bear this out.

The Pune Ring Road is to cover a total distance of 128 km and is expected to cost Rs. 13,315 crore to complete. It is to come up in 3 phases. The first phase, linking Satara Road in the south of the city to Ahmadnagar Road in the north-east, has in December 2017 received an allocation of Rs. 1,500 crore from the Union Government’s National Highway Authority.

The Pune Metropolitan Regional Development Authority (PMRDA) is the agency which has been entrusted with constructing this ambitious project. The PMRDA is expected to seek funds from the Asian Development Bank and other reputed lenders for the remainder of the amount. The ring road, as per current alignment, will pass through many villages on the outskirts of Pune such as Khed Shivapur, Maval, Kesnand, Wagholi and Pirangut.

However, land acquisition continues to loom large as the biggest hurdle this ambitious project faces. Many farmers from the area in and around Maval recently protested against their land being acquired for this purpose. The road ahead for this project, which is looked forward to by many, is likely to be a bumpy one and overcoming these will be a major challenge for those behind it.

Pune Ring Road – The Pepped Up Controversy!

Last updated on July 22, 2016 by Vinita Shinkar

Urbanization is a term which echoes in our ears when we take up the name of any Metro city. With the increasing population comes their ever increasing expectation from the infrastructure provided in the city. For any subsequent new development in an area what matters the most is the connectivity. Connectivity then refers to roads that link the various addresses of a metropolis. With now Pune growing to be a major IT and automobile hub has received attention of various authorities such as the Maharashtra state Government and Pune Municipal Corporation. They have come up with an ambitious plan of laying the Ring Road around the Pune city. All this hence reminds me of the famous Kishore Kumar song ‘Ek Raasta hai Zindagi Jo tham gaye toh kuch nahi’.

Pune Ring Road – The Pepped Up Controversy!

Urbanization is a term which echoes in our ears when we take up the name of any Metro city. With the increasing population comes their ever increasing expectation from the infrastructure provided in the city. For any subsequent new development in an area what matters the most is the connectivity. Connectivity then refers to roads that link the various addresses of a metropolis. With now Pune growing to be a major IT and automobile hub has received attention of various authorities such as the Maharashtra state Government and Pune Municipal Corporation. They have come up with an ambitious plan of laying the Ring Road around the Pune city. All this hence reminds me of the famous Kishore Kumar song ‘Ek Raasta hai Zindagi Jo tham gaye toh kuch nahi’.

  • Original Expansion of Pune:

    Since 19th century Pune has transformed at the drop of the hat. Pune is considered to spread in circular fashion with Shivajinagar and the age old Peth area as its center. Settlements happen alongside water bodies and Pune is thus blessed with Mula-Mutha rivers which acts as a main diameter of the city. Keeping the concentric development in view the Pune ring road proposal has been made.

Pune Ring Road – All the W’s Answered!

      1. Why Ring Road? 

         Pune city is noted to have maximum number of two-wheelers in the state followed by Thane. The registered annual growth rate of vehicles in Pune was 9.56% mentioned by Pune RTO in 2013. The city is at the confluence of 3 National Highways namely NH 4, NH 50, and NH 9 which brings regional traffic into the city. To avoid traffic congestion and ensure smoother traffic flow Ring Road Proposal was aforementioned collectively by Pune and Pimpri Chinchwad Municipal Corporations and necessary changes are made in the development plan of the city. Today, the share of out-bound traffic on Pune’s internal roads is a staggering 30 percent and 80 per cent of these out-bound vehicles are trucks, stressing the need for the ring road.

2. Who proposed this project?

The Pune Ring Road was proposed in 2007 at the meeting conducted by Honorable Chief Minister Vilasrao Deshmukh. It was approved by the State officials in 2013.

3. Where is the Ring Road?

 Ring road is concentrically proposed road with a total stretch of ~170 kms enveloping entire Pune and Pimpri Chinchwad in the centre. The ring road comprises of four stretches to achieve culmination. The four stretches are:

Theurphata NH9, Kesnand, Wagholi, Bhavdi,Tulapur, Alandi, Kelgaon, Chimbli, NH50.

39.89 km

 

Chimboliphata to Nighoje to Sangurde, Shelarwadi, NH4, Shirgaon, Chandkhed, Rihe, Ghotawde, Pirangut

46.40 km

 

Pirangut, Urwade, MuthaBahuli, Sangrun, Nigde, Khamgaon, GheraSinhgad, Kalyan, Kondanpur, Shriramnagar 51.20 km
NH4 , Gogalwadi, Patharwadi, Bhivri, Kanifnath, New Mula – Mutha canal, Theurphata, NH9

32.24 km

 

4. What about finance?

 The ring road as informed by the Pune Municipal Corporation would be accomplished through Public Private Partnership(PPP model). The PPP mode would be BOT i.e. Build Own Transfer. The total cost is assumed to be Rs 8439 crores. The split up of Rs. 8439 crores is – Land acqusition cost Rs. 2374 crore and construction cost Rs. 6065 crore.

The project would be toll free along with concession of extra FSI. To make the project financially viable State Government has offered to provide extra FSI for land that can be developed along the 38.38 kms which comprises of a satellite township. This approach would generate a total revenue of Rs. 9228 crores. While this decision represents a smart move on behalf of the Government officials, what will happen in the coming days is to be seen.

5. When will the ring road be completed?

The stretches mentioned above are the four stages of the project. The survey of stretches 1 and 2 was completed way back in 2008 and the alignment of 3rd and 4th stretches is completed. The Pune Metropolitan Region Development Authority (PMRDA) has completed the survey of land required for the project. Maharashtra State Road Development Corporation (MSRDC) will further take measures to commence the work on ground. However, the completion date is still far away in the priority list of the authority!

Pune Ring Road Development Delay Controversy:

The Pune Ring Road has become a hot topic alike any Bollywood news. The several reasons being attributed for the delay are as follows: The foremost of all, is land acquisition from farmers owning farms in the stretch of ring road. Though Government has promised a favourable TDR policy to farmer’s benefit however nothing much has happened even after that. Secondly, the political upheaval wherein the political parties raised concerns about undue benefits being brought to the 14 satellite townships coming along the road.

Yet another limb of this controversy, lies in the high aims of the development authorities and municipal corporations for years, while the ground report says something else. They envisioned Pune to have smoother traffic flow and hence gifted Pune “with a haphazard public transport route- the BRTS without considering safety and traffic issues rising out of it” as expressed by Pune people. Still there lies contentment that at least the BRTS project has seen the light of day in comparison to the projects like Pune Metro and Pune Skybus that are still up in the air. Hoping that ring road would be an accomplished venture and finds its way through all the controversies.

Yet thinking over and over about what is in store with this venture is a manifestation of disagreement, dicey political issues and prolonged expectations of Puneties!
