After initial hurdles related to land acquisition, the construction work on the 13.3 kilometre bypass road between Khopoli and Kusgaon on the Pune-Mumbai expressway has started. Once completed, commuters between Pune and Mumbai will be able to avoid traffic snarls and save atleast 20 minutes of their travel time between the two cities.
The Maharashtra State Road Development Corporation (MSRDC) had alloted tender for the project to Hyderabad-based Navyug Construction, which started work last week. The officials of MSRDC said the construction will be carried out in three phases and is expected to completed within three years.
