Taking advantage of the lockdown in the city, the Pune Metropolitan Regional Development Authority (PMRDA) is hoping to speed up the process of demolishing the Pune University and E-Sqaure flyovers during the ongoing lockdown.
The initial plan was to tear down the structures over a duration of one month, but will now be done in 15 days; in two phases instead of three.
The reason for the demolitions are so that they can be replaced with a 1.5 km long, two tier flyover that will accommodate both, vehicles and the Metro viaduct for the Hinjawadi-Shivajinagar metro line.
Plans have been made to reroute traffic through the Pune University campus.
