Pune :  deccan express  – Pune Metro | The metro project work on the Sambhaji bridge was undertaken on Thursday at 11 pm under strong police protection and it is expected to be completed on Friday, said metro officials.


Most of the work of the Vanaz Depot to Garware College stretch on the Vanaz-Ramwadi route has been completed. All pillars on the riverbed have been erected. Activists of Some Ganesh mandals had opposed the route above the Sambhaji bridge because it would create obstacles for the Ganesh immersion processions.


An attempt was made to find a solution by holding meetings attended by Mayor Muralidhar Mohol, members of Ganesh mandals, leaders of political parties, metro project officials and the traffic police but no solution was found.


Hence, Mohol had told members of Ganesh mandals to give up their opposition. He had instructed metro officials to start the work after realising that Ganesh mandal members were adamant. Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar had also conducted a meeting in Mumbai and instructed that the work should be carried under police protection.


The work was going to begin on Tuesday but the activists of Shiv Sena, Congress, NCP and MNS had held a sit down agitation and Ganesh mandal members had staged an agitation outside the PMC office. Mohol had adjourned the proceeding of the general body till Thursday as a result of the pandemonium.


It was expected that again, there will be chaos during Thursday’s meeting but no one said anything. The metro administration started the work at 11 pm under strong police protection. Two steel girders weighing 48 tonnes and having a length of 50 metres are to be installed using cranes and staff of 100 people was deployed at the site.


There was a strong police bandobast on both sides of the bridge and at Khandojibaba and Tilak Chowks. Seventy five police constables and six officers were part of the bandobast, said senior PI of Deccan police station Muralidhar Karpe.


Members of Ganesh mandals had gathered at the Khandojibaba Chowk after they came to know that the work had started but they beat a hasty retreat after the strong police bandobast.
