Digging work has now been extended to the base of the Wakad Bridge. Jams now extend all the way upto the Hinjewadi Chowk during evening hours (7~7.30 PM). Suggest use alternative routes through Bhumkar chowk if you need to join the highway.

Guys need help. I will be travelling to Hinjewadi Phase 3 for next 15 days from Swargate in my car. I am very much aware of the traffic jams starting from Sus road, Audi showroom and Hinjewadi phase 1 and 2. I could see 2 options to reach phase 3 by avoiding these traffic jams. Could you please suggest are these routes in good conditions to travel. My travelling time would be 10:30 AM and returning back after 8:30 pm.
Route 1- Pashan Sus road-> Nande-> Chnade-> Phase 3
Route 2- Chandani chowk-> Bhugaon->Pirangut-> Phase 3

I take Route 1 daily from Bavdhan (Route 2 is an overkill and will not save you any time or effort). The route till Chande village is fine and then you have the most excruciating kilometre or two where all you have a series of potholes and broken road. But it does help in peak hours especially since the highway is severely bottlenecked around Pashankar Auto and the regular road to Hinjewadi is blocked typically at Shivaji chowk as well as Wipro circle these days.

I would not advise taking that route on your return trip because you said you will start after 8:30 pm. There are stretches that are dug up and extremely dangerous in low light to someone unfamiliar with the terrain (just saw a truck overturned there yesterday). Rather take the left after Emcure that bypasses Mezza9 and connects directly to Bhumkar Chowk and the highway. In fact even in the morning, since you're travelling after 10:30 am, I would suggest you just stick to the regular Hinjewadi road.

Yes, it will be completed very soon along with other fast moving PMC projects like the Pune Metro, efficient and profitable PMPML, waste disposal and village mergers.

The cops are in overdrive these days under the Wakad-Hinjewadi bridge. Three times in a row cars in front of me were stopped by cops who jump into their way, latest being today morning. Not sure if they are due to tints or for any other reason. Even a lady was caught and her films were being ripped off by a cop. All MH12 registered fairly older vehicles. Mine has tints too, light ones, which I havent bothered to remove after the ban came into effect.

The cops only catch such vehicles. If they even a bit of guts up their rear, I would ask them to first catch the plenty of white fortuners, scorpios, safaris etc which bear a political symbol. I have noticed plenty of vehicles with extremely heavy tints drive up rashly that too in front of cops and they keep staring at the sky like idiots. In Fact the tints are so dark that you cant see a thing inside the car.

In the evenings, "Locals" , for lack of a better word, very coolly drive from Persistent right upto Shivaji chowk, where they turn right towards shell, all of it on the wrong side, and in their ultra dark tinted Swift/Baleno/Scorpio/Fortuner/Creta. The cops dont bat an eyelid. Got several such incidences captured on my dashcam.

A regular case actually. Unless a PI level person comes up, no one really bothers. Its when you have the PI (full khaki uniform), that things seem a bit better. Also the above incident is not specific to Hinjewadi alone. You can see similar ones near Dange Chowk, Wakad, Kaspate Wasti etc. Heavy tints, wrong side driving and many other traffic rules go out of the window and cops aren't bothered in catching these people. They are more focused on catching the IT wale as if they catch locals, all they will get is the lines from the locals hands printed on their faces. The major reason for this is the political a**holes who support these gundas for vote bank politics
