In a big relief to daily commuters, Union Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari has sanctioned 39 crores for the pending repair works on the Pune-Nashik highway. The move is aimed at easing traffic snarls at Rajgurunagar and Narayangaon. Shiv Sena MP Shivajirao Adhalrao Patil revealed in a press note that Gadkari gave an immediate approval for the project in a meeting in New Delhi held last month. The Union Minister gave stringent instructions for the contractor to complete the delayed bypass work on the highway at the earliest, the note stated. The works will include full repairs of the two roads and construction of separate drainage lines and footpaths.
