The road traffic congestion is now back to the pre-pandemic levels in Pune after seeing a decline during the lockdown period. Traffic diversions have been imposed by the Pune traffic police to facilitate Metro work on a half-kilometer stretch of Bund Garden Road. This stretch is on the Vanaz-Ramwadi Metro corridor.

These traffic diversions were placed from 10 PM to 5 AM for a few weeks. Moreover, the Maharashtra State Development Corporation (MSRDC) is to install 203 new CCTV cameras at various locations to catch traffic violators on the 94-km Mumbai Pune Expressway.

  • Pune has seen some changes to the Motor Vehicle Amendment act and updated the Pune traffic fines more than a year and a half later.
  • The unpaid dues by the motorists in Pune for violating various traffic rules have summed up to a total of Rs.130 crore. So, a special recovery drive was started by the city traffic police in December last year, which has yielded meager returns so far.
  • The BJP ruled Maharashtra government has decided not to implement the Motor Vehicle Amendment Act as of now. They are in plans to seek the opinion of legal experts before updating the traffic fines in the state.
  • Karnataka being another BJP ruled state, has also decided to consult the center regarding the heavy fines proposed in the Motor Vehicle Amendment act. They are in plans to study the Gujarat model before updating the fines in the state.
  • The Odisha government decided to keep the new Motor Vehicle Amendment act on hold for three months. This decision was followed by the disputes between the traffic police and commuters regarding the new MV act.

So, Pune stood as one of the four cities with the highest increased road congestion rate post the pandemic and is also planning to modify the fines after one and half years.
