Children, women, senior citizens are vulnerable
Mayur Colony, 7th: As soon as the lockdown took place, the underpass of Dr. Narayan Vishnu and Nanasaheb Dharmadhikari under the pound road at Kinara Chowk near Vanaj Company was closed. Citizens are flocking outside for shopping. Metro work is also underway on this road. As there is no signal at Kinara Chowk and the subway is closed, the citizens have to cross the road with their lives in their hands. The subway constructed at a cost of lakhs of rupees was closed with locks. Crossing is becoming dangerous. Demand that the subway should start as soon as possible
Locals including Shankar Kangude, Girish Gurunani are doing it.
"The municipal corporation has spent lakhs of rupees to build the subway. However, by closing it, the corporation is playing with the lives of the citizens. This road is always closed. There are no security guards in this place.
- Raghavendra Nilegaonkar, local citizen
"It is difficult for senior citizens to cross the road. It is dangerous to cross the road due to the work of the metro. The municipal corporation should pay attention to this and start the subway as soon as possible."
-Mayuresh Mancharkar, Shopkeeper Pound Road.
"Transport planning departments will provide budget for minor maintenance and repair work. Correspondence at senior level is ongoing."
- Sandeep Kadam, Kothrud - Bavdhan Regional Officer.
"I will be able to tell the senior level next week whether to turn it on or not."
- Srinivas Bonala, Chief Engineer Transport Planning.
