I really wonder how the authorities call it a Flyover.
You start climbing and you are not even 150 mts and you get the 1st branching leading to pashan (Making the whole flow of traffic slow and cluttered), another 200 odd mts and the 2nd outlet for baner . .

And you should not miss out the spots where they merge with mainflow- on pashan/baner road. I find them very dangeros specially for the vehicles which are not on the flyover (so called) who want to join the flow of the traffic pouring from the flyover outlets !


I think the bridge was built with no long term planning.

This statement is applicable for most of the road widening, flyover/bridge construction work that has been done in Pune in the recent past. As far as long term planning goes, I guess the municipal authorities' motto is "We'll cross the bridge when we come to it" ;-)

Cheers,

Moving a little distance away from Hinjewadi, who had the great idea to create mountains on NDA road and Paud road ? Yes, I am talking about the speed breakers/road crossing points that came up, literally overnight.

There are boards put up indicating that these are to assist senior citizens to cross the road.

And they are not even painted in reflective paint :( .
Unsuspecting drivers coming in from the Mumbai side and entering Pune from chandani chowk are getting a nasty bump since most of them are coming too fast.

PS : Rains today. Expect the jams to be 2x on the way back.

Well still cant understand the thinking behind this . It has been built all over Pune now. Was just wondering what would happen to a low GC vehicle . Its literally a big hump in the road moreover non painted

I can see the road if I stand up at my desk, and even right now there are big jams.
Thanks for the Quick update , but honestly speaking have been observing this illogical connectio of rains and jams on Pune roads for past 5 years , still wondering why ??

Lucky Me, I used to work in Yerwada office.

Only once in two or three months I used to go to my Hinjewadi office. So that fine with me. I would say that's a great escape.

Firstly, if they expect senior citizens to cross over the hump when vehicles are already bumping their way there, its sheer stupidity. If at all the system has to work the pedestrian crossing should be after the hump, not on it

Secondly, as already pointed out the humps are a huge safety issue as they are not painted, they are not visible and some of them are at very short distances from curves/ bends. I guess these would be unnecessary if people just respected zebra crossings at signals, but thats another long story

Any clue as to why the tarffic flow was so smooth in the morning? Not that I am complaining, but not used to such situations in our good ol' H'Wadi.

I reached office from Wakad flyover in 10 mins flat! Felt like a dream .

Wait for Rainy Season, all things will happen on Hinjewadi Road including Chaos, Riots, Loots, Accidents.

Because, last years Rainy reason was like a very bad dream. This year lot of people bought a car. All my friends are now equipped with a Car. See all these new cars plus already existing cars on road in this rainy season.

My company's parking is having two floors for car parking. Last Year, In summer generally one floor was occupied by cars and second was empty but in rainy season both floors were jam packed. This year in summer two floors are almost full with cars. I can not imagine the situation in coming rainy season.

Yep thats true.
What I observed was there were Police just at the landing of flyover to keep the entry and landing clean. No one was allowed to stop at the landing making it chaos free.
Second thing I noticed was there we no vehicles taking U turn at various divider breaks from flyover to Hinjewadi.
Third thing was there were to big vehicles comming from otherside and entring the small lane just after Shell Bunk (and vice versa).

At the end of it I thought I was just plain lucky to hit the sweet timing

One reason could be its a Thursday - weekly off for the other industries. Couple this with it being a Bank Holiday as well today.

Shortlist the companies which had a holiday today. And then we can safely blame them for all our traffic woes!

Yes, indeed!

I have just moved to this side of Pune and plan to reside at Wakad. What is the average time required to get from the Wakad flyover to the Infy circle on a normal working day? I need to plan my travel accordingly.

Ironically, on days when I come to Hinjewadi from Navi Mumbai, in the first 1hr and 30mins I'm at the Wakad flyover and another 30 mins it takes to get to the Infy circle!

OT: Thanks to my new work location, I've been seeing a lot of TBHP cars!

Cheers!
