Deputy chief minister Ajit Pawar said the government would make substantial provision for the Pune metro project in the state budget. It would also support speedy completion of the proposed 170-km ring road encompassing Pune and Pimpri-Chinchwad.
“The Centre has approved the Pune metro project (in principle) and now the state government is going to make a provision for it in the budget. On February 24, I will be presenting a vote-on-account, so it would not be possible to make a big provision for all projects. But when the state will present its full budget, Pune metro will get its share,” said Ajit Pawar, while speaking at a function here.
He added that efforts were taken to speed up the Pune metro project. “The state will contribute 20% funds while the Centre will contribute 20%. The civic body has to chip in 10% and I have asked the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) corporators to ensure that the project work, once started, is not affected over paucity of funds,” Pawar said.
The state has approved the Road Network Plan designed for the peripheral area of Pune and Pimpri Chinchwad. The plan, involving the construction of 90 km of road, is a part of the 170-km outer ring road.
“The government will ensure that this project is not delayed. In fact, all projects should be completed within the stipulated time to avoid cost escalation,” he said. Under the plan, construction of roads will take place in Wagholi-Kesnand-Lonikand, Manjri Budruk-Loni Kalbhor, Khed Shivapur-Dive, Khadakwasla-Yewalewadi, Bhugaon-Nere-Nade-Jambhe, Pirangut-Ghotawade-Urawade, Wadgaon-Urse-Bebadohol, Warale-Sudumbare, Dehu-Khalumbre, Charholi-Chakan.
