This is indeed good news and gives a decent alternative route.
Do you mean no potholes at all ? This is hard to believe given the history of our corporations constructing roads with bad quality.
Do I need to take this with a pinch of salt ?
Yes there are no pot holes, most of the road is relaid and where it is not the pot holes are properly covered. The road is as good as the other available roads to hinjewadi.

For the last 2 days i have been following in the foot steps of Sajo and have been taking the company bus as my car is not available.

I must admit it is smooth sailing. In the mornings board the bus at 7.45 AM right next to my residence and i am at my desk at 8.30 AM

In the evening take the 6 PM bus and i am home at 7 PM.

The only issue is i might not be able to continue this 8.30 AM to 6 PM schedule for long.

On both the days i took the company bus which is operated by PMPL and oh boy the way they drive. Sudden Acceleration is followed by sudden braking accompanied with cutting lanes without any care for the other drivers/bikers/pedestrians etc. I wish i had the knack of dozing off as soon as the bus starts moving.

But overall it has been a stress free and relaxing ride to and from home.

No wonder I saw your car parked nicely (facing outwards) in your building today. Thought you were yet to set off..

The 6-8 PM schedule for right turn under flyover is a bit flexible it seems. I was there at 8.30 yesterday, and it was still open. Is so for about 2-3 days now. Do they open it up at 5 pm?
I have got the car today, so will take the right turn route if I leave between 5 and 9 pm.

If my memory serves me right, the out times are the same as usual, so evening time jams will be conducted during normal times. No delays there

Might be slightly off topic. However, It seems 16 Feb 12 is announced as Public Holiday in pune as per govt. circular dated 15 Feb 12. Attached.

But most of corporate seems to be working .. isnt this is lapse in compliance?

^^Idea: Well, NO it aint! Most of the companies in HJW fall under the SEZ catagory. There are a whole set of different rules/exemptions for the SEZ section.

Most of the companies (3 that I know of) circulated an email stating the 2 hour delay in start of operations. They also attached a circular from the Govt/Corporation stating the 2 hour time frame given for voting.

Ojas: yes, the 6-8PM window is slightly relaxed to a certain extent. AFAIK, the right turn starts around 5:30ish and ends around 8:30 or so. But need to get that confirmed.

For some unexplainable reasons, I'm facing bad traffic at Hinjewadi Chowk from the last 2 days. Left office at 8:35 pm today only to be halted at Hinjewadi Chowk for 15 minutes. Traffic lights were not functioning and mini-bus drivers were ploughing small cars like a snow-plough ploughs the snow.

The only positive part here - Once you cross the chowk, I got the entire road open towards the Wakad bridge. Floored my Punto and reached home in no time.

I think as Hinjewadi does not fall under the Pune or Pimpri Chinchwad Municipal limits and because it comes under Gram Panchayat, legally hinjewadi companies are not bound to give holiday.

But then when there were Gram Panchayat elections a couple of weeks back we still did not get a holiday with the possible reason being none of the employees live in the gram panchayat and hence would not vote and hence no holiday.

Another accident spotted!

This one is just before DLF. A La Royale cabbie must've tried taking a U-Turn in one of those open spaces in the divider. A Force Tempo was tailgating it, and ended up hitting the right rear door of the cab. A Sumo tailgating the Tempo ended up rear ending the Tempo.

Last seen, all three of them were arguing on the situation. Would've been a great sight to see - all 3 locals arguing with each other, unable to play the 'local' card to their benefit .

How bad is the damage? If the paint hasnt been chipped, it can be repaired very easily, and at a cheaper cost.

Here's the link (Paintless Dent repair)to the thread. A few of my posts show the job carried out on my Laura too.
Yesterday, Santosh and Sudhir came to my place to repair. It took good 2 hours time for them to repair. As the dent were on a curve (where C column meets the bumper), it was difficult to get exact pre-dent finish. But now it is not noticable unless looked closely. Scratches to paint are still there, but they can't do much about it. Total bill was Rs 2000 for two dents.

He knows you (Swanand) well. He mentioned about work on your Laura and Swift.

BTW, I did vote yesterday, to a guy from A list who I thought better of the lot. And to a lady from B list who, like others, was proxy for her husband.

Tried this route yesterday. The surface is ok - not comparable to orange route. Initial 1 km is hard road followed by single lane with relatively better road surface. It's followed by a stretch of road that is getting widened. The last stretch as you ride up the crest of the hill is the best.

As Anil mentioned, it takes about 15-20 minutes frm TechM to Sus overpass. Add 5 minutes from Ph2 to Ph3. I was behind a convoy of 5-6 vehicle and it took 20 mins. This i a good alternative (and faster) route to get to highway from HJW Ph2/3for folks travelling towards Kothrud

Why are the trees on the highway, adjacent to the Balewadi stadium getting cut? Obvious answer is road widening, but it can be done without cutting them too! Plus anyway the bottleneck is going to be at the small bridge over the river which would still remain 4-lane only!

The trees on the side of NH4 bypass have been uprooted by official in the name of road widening. Sad state of affairs in Pune.
Not sure what the court's mandate in these matters. Feel really sad to see the face of Pune deteriorating rapidly.

Seems like some companies have an off on account of Mahashivratri. Being a Monday, there was relatively less traffic on the roads.

Hope the evening sees less traffic as well.
