Learn about the upcoming temporary halt in traffic on the Mumbai-Pune Expressway scheduled for April 3-4. Stay informed and plan your travel with our detailed guide.

On both April 3 and April 4, 2024, from 12:00 PM to 2:00 PM, commuters traveling on the Mumbai-Pune Expressway should brace themselves for a brief traffic disruption.

The Maharashtra State Road Development Corporation (MSRDC) has set the installation of a gantry at the 93/900 kilometer mark on the expressway, facilitated by the Highway Traffic Management System on both the Pune and Mumbai lanes, as reported by Pune Pulse.

To ensure the smooth installation of the gantry, traffic flow in both directions, encompassing light and heavy vehicles, will come to a halt on the expressway. Motorists are advised to consider alternative routes during this period.

For those heading from Pune to Mumbai in light vehicles, the recommended detour is through the Mumbai canal and National Highway no. 48, following the good old Pune-Mumbai route.

All vehicle types will be rerouted via the Kiwale bridge through the Old Pune Mumbai Highway. Vehicles traveling from Mumbai to Pune will be redirected to Kusgaon toll naka 55.000 kms (Lonavala exit) towards the Old Pune Mumbai Highway, heading to Pune.

These diversions have been put in place to ensure the safety and efficiency of the gantry installation process. Commuters are urged to plan their journeys accordingly to minimize inconvenience.
