If you plan to travel on the Mumbai-Pune Expressway on Wednesday, avoid doing so between 12 noon to 2 pm. The Pune-bound carriageway of the expressway will be closed for vehicles as there is some repair and construction work undertaken by the Maharashtra State Road Development Corporation (MSRDC).

On Tuesday, the State Highway police issued a notification mentioning that smaller vehicles going towards Pune during the two-hour blockade will be diverted via Kalamboli and Uran bypass road. The heavy vehicles will be asked to halt on the sides, till the road is re-opened at 2 pm.

The MSRDC is constructing an overhead structure (gantry) on the highway. They are also putting up signboards and video messages for the motorists.

Due to the closure, motorists and light passenger vehicles coming from Mumbai via expressway will be diverted from the Kusgaon toll plaza to the Pune-Mumbai Highway. The heavy vehicles will be stopped before Khalapur and Kusgaon toll plazas during that time.

State Highway police has made an appeal to citizens to avoid travelling on the expressway during the closure time and plan the travel accordingly to avoid any inconvenience.
