Residents and local corporators of Empire Estate in Chinchwad had recently threatened to stage a rasta roko to protest against the slow pace of construction work of the flyover in the area.
While addressing mediapersons on Thursday, local corporator Prasad Shetty blamed the company entrusted with the construction.
The PCMC has availed a loan of Rs 100 crore from World Bank to construct the flyover. The work of the 1.6-km long bridge began in 2009, and was to be completed in 30 months. The flyover was initially opposed by the residents of Empire Estate as it cut through the housing complex.
Shetty and other leaders, who addressed the press meet, said the delay proved detrimental for the life and livelihood of the citizens. “The work of the Nashik Phata flyover and the Empire Estate flyover began at the same time. While the Nashik Phata flyover has been thrown open to traffic, the Empire Estate flyover is yet to be completed,” he said.
Apart from the risks of accidents, the construction work has also narrowed down the road, causing traffic snarls. Residents claimed that the corporation had turned a blind eye to their problem and had not taken any action against the contractor.
