No hydraulic option for the Sambhaji bridge: Maha-Metro; work likely to resume
Maharashtra Metro Rail Corporation (Maha-Metro) has disapproved of the proposal for a hydraulic bridge at the Sambhaji bridge aka Lakdi pul and work on the metro is expected to resume on site
PUNE: Now that the Maharashtra Metro Rail Corporation (Maha Metro) has disapproved of the proposal for a hydraulic bridge at the Sambhaji alias Lakdi pul bridge, work on the metro should resume according to the previous plan on site.
Previously, Ganesh mandals objected to the height of the viaduct which is part of the work of the Sambhaji Bridge metro, after which the Maha metro decided to temporarily stop the work. The mayor of Pune, Murlidhar Mohol, took note of the objections raised and ordered the work to be stopped.
Maha Metro project manager Atul Gadgil said, âRepresentatives of Ganesh mandal have submitted the proposal to erect a hydraulic bridge instead of the existing plan, but we have given our recommendations on this to the mayor. Our point of view is that this is not technically feasible and that work should resume according to the previous plan. From now on, elected officials will have to call on him. “
While the elected officials said the height of the bridge was decided much earlier according to the previous plan and the same appeared in the news. When the work began, however, they (Ganesh’s mandals) opposed it causing unnecessary delays.
