Metro work in Pune likely to be stopped during G20 to avoid traffic

In light of the approaching G20 meeting, the Pune corporation plans to halt metro rail construction in the city, which has been highlighted as a major cause of traffic congestion, for which the administration has been heavily chastised.

On Thursday, Guardian Minister Chandrakant Patil inspected the preparations for the G20 summit, which will be attended by delegations from roughly 36 countries.

Municipal commissioner Vikram Kumar said that the Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) is responsible for civic infrastructure-related work, which includes the repair and beautifying of roadways used by delegates during the summit.

Officers from numerous government ministries were present at the meeting, and the minister expressed worry about the traffic mess. It was discovered that the barricades erected for metro construction were narrowing the highways and causing traffic mayhem. As a result, the administration has already directed agencies not to barricade the areas where no work is being done and has threatened to take action.

The guardian minister has ordered the government to speak with agencies implementing the metro rail project and halt work for a few days during the G20 meeting to avoid traffic havoc.
