PUNE: The standing committee of the Pimpri-Chinchwad Municipal Corporation (PCMC) approved a proposal to acquire additional land at Kasarwadi for the flyover being built near Nashik phata.
The PCMC will have to acquire land along the Mumbai-Pune highway stretch for providing the “necessary links” to the flyover. The land to be acquired has not been shown in the PCMC development plan.
The municipal corporation has already started the construction work of the two-storied modern flyover which will go across the railway line as well as the Pavana river at Kasarwadi. The PCMC will be spending over Rs 90 crore on the flyover.
In another decision, the committee approved a proposal to allot work to an agency for carrying out a survey for the development plan of the Tathawade village which was merged within the PCMC limits last year.
