The Highway police have been on their toes on Saturday as there is a lot of traffic due to the cancellation of trains. Especially on E-way of Pune lanes heading to From Mumbai to Pune the traffic is left in mess.

Expressway control said, "On Mumbai-Pune Expressway, especially on the 7-kilometre stretch near Shedung point, the traffic is moving slowly. Due to the fear of a rise in water level on the road, out of the three lanes, only two lanes are being used while the third lane is stopped. Due to which segregating the vehicles and their movement is a problem."
