PUNE The Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) is proposing to develop five new cement concrete roads and flyover in the city under the public-private partnership (PPP) scheme.
The routes are located at Baner and Lohegaon, while the flyover is at Bibwewadi.
The proposal, presented in the budget plan of the standing committee, foresees the cost of the project to ₹500 crores.
Amar Shinde, Executive Engineer of the Roads Department, said, “We have decided to appoint a consultant who will give us a clear idea of the cost and other technical details. Currently we are working on five routes and one flyover.
He added, “A new road is located at Lohegaon and the other four at Baner. The width of the roads varies from 14mts to 65mts. The proposed overflight in the Bibwewadi area will pass through Gangadham chowk. It is about one kilometer long and will solve the traffic problem in Gangadham Chowk.
Overall, according to Shinde, the road department has planned eight roads in its development plan (DP). The estimated cost of the eight roads is ₹123 crore. “We have also included a waterfront road that connects the Bund Garden Road to the Mundhwa Bridge. The Department of Roads calculated the estimated cost of this bridge at ₹27 crore,” he added.
Under the PPP model, instead of PMC, the private actors such as the contractor/builder/developer will spend the money and the PMC will issue credit notes that the private actors can use for future construction activities, such as as the payment of development costs, among others.
