2.Wakad Chowk - after Hinjewadi flyover (there is one Shree Mhatoba temple as well near Rohan Tarang)
3.Vishal Nagar- Hanuman Jayanti celebrations near Copa Cabana. Pandal has been erected thus keeping 1 lane open for traffic.
Thanks all for the contribution. But i don't know where is Bhumkar Vasti or Shree Mhatoba Temple I think i will leave office after 9 today.

@mmxylorider - I am surprised that there is no mail from our Transport department as of now. Normally those guys are prompt in sending such mails.

I am all the more confused. I leave between 1845-1930 daily. My route. phase3 to phase 2 take a right towards geometric to left at ph1 Infy circle to right at hinjewadi chowk to wakad and take a left after the flyover and merge with the highway towards chandani chowk. Please tell me if any of this route has blocked roads during the time I travel and if yes which parts?

Me too ! I mean, after the chowk part, I too follow the same route. I think this route is going to remain open. The one going from Mezza9 to Ginger hotel underpass is going to be closed. But then, I can be completely wrong.

The Traffic communique as floated across by the Transport guys :

Effective 1500 hrs all vehicles plying to and fro from Phase I and II will be diverted through Marunji (Mezza 9) bypass route to reach Pune-Bangalore Express Highway(Wakad Subway) and then to the desired destination place. Road leading from Hinjewadi Shivaji chowk to Bhumkarwasti will closed for all vehicular traffic from 1500 hrs to 2200 hrs.

So cutting down all confusions it is a sure thing that the main road from Hinjewadi chowk to Wakad bridge is closed till 10:00 PM .

Situation as visible to me right now (as I said earlier, I have a good view of the roads from my desk + I am quite jobless right now ) :
Traffic is clear, and is proceeding towards Hinjewadi Chowk+onwards as well as on the Mezza9 route.
No barricades/diversions/blocks visible. Phase 2 traffic is proceeding towards these routes just fine.
Will give further updates in about an hour.

Agreed with you Swanand. Stretch between PH1 chowk & Hinjewadi Flyover is yet to be fully commercial. Just now we had D'Mart. There are many chunks of big plots alongside road waiting to be sold. Definitely those are owened by people (powerful and pollitically connected).

Bottomline: Balewadi link road will not be operational. If it has to, Hinjewadi road has to give expected returns to people (powerful and pollitically connected)!

Traffic update : 6.45 PM :

All vehicles seem to be proceeding in the normal direction. Except the buses, who seem to be taking the Mezza9 road and not the one which goes straight.
No excessive congestion observed. Has anyone been forced to turn back from the chowk ?

Like a complete dork, I decided to trust a colleague instead of TBHP and took the Mezza9 route back at 8 pm yesterday. And promptly got stuck for about 1 hour.

@Swanand and Zalaps : I thought the plots along the main road were already sold. And by the rate they are going , I think both the roads (Balewadi+hinjewadi) will be equally commercially viable in the times to come. Infact, due to the bad traffic, I would rather not stop on the road and concentrate on getting out of there first.

Well, I dont think you would have been any better on your normal course, I took that road and got stuck for exactly 50 minutes!! So nothing to much to choose!

Edit: Well actually, if you were to take the normal route you would have spotted me and dueller!!

Folks - I've been using the middle road (right at Mezza9, left at KPIT, go over 4 suspension testers and join the orange Route) for a while now. But before I jot my findings:

Red Route = HJW chowk to Wakad overbridge via IOC pump etc
Orange Route = While coming from Tamanna, PH1 straight at HJW chowk
Green Route = Left a Mezza9 to join at Kalakhadak underpass.

Coming back, the only traffic snarl on the orange route is towards the end near the underpass, other than that it is quite good in terms of time. No company bus traffic, very few trucks and significantly lesser 2 wheelers. Road condition is 2.5/5. This has become my preferred route both ways of the commute now.

How is Orange route in mornings? I am anyways going via village to reach Phase 3(which measures ~7 KMS) so if the Orange route is better than Red (which I generally take) then I would go for it.

And how long does it take for you to clear the signal where Green and Orange merge?

It's definitely faster in the morning compared to the Red Route, only stop point is near HJW chowk where you would be taking a right.

Towards the evening, it takes about 5-10 mins to clear the congestion where green and orange merge.

To the traffic experts in Hinjewadi
I am considering a job offer in your 'ilaaka'. While there are other deal breakers, I would also like to know how much time I need to allot for a daily drive from Kothrud to Hinjewadi Phase 3.
If I am not asking for much, can you let me know the time that would be requried for a 9am to 7pm shift and a noon to 10pm shift. I would think the afternoon/ UK shift would allow for a quicker commute, but I would like to hear it from the proverbial horses' mouths!
