The Chhatrapati Sambhaji Bridge on Mutha River, popularly known as Lakdi Pul — a crucial link connecting Deccan Gymkhana and Peth areas in Pune — will be closed from 11 pm to 6 am every night from January 5 to 10 for the ongoing work of Pune Metro, the City Traffic Police has said.
A communication announcing temporary traffic diversions due to closure of Lakdi Pul was issued by Deputy Commissioner of Police (Traffic) Rahul Shrirame on Monday night. The bridge will be open for traffic as usual during the day but will remain closed from 11 pm to 6 am during this period.
The order stated that during this period, work on placing the girder between pillars of serial number 155 and 156 of the Pune Metro stretch between Vanaz and Pune court will be completed. Night timings have been chosen to carry out the work considering the low traffic flow during the period, said officials.
During the night, traffic from Karve Road to Alka Talkies Chowk will be diverted via Goodluck Chowk, Natraj Chowk, PMPML Bus Stop and Bhide Bridge. Traffic from Jangli Maharaj Road and Apte Road will be diverted via Khandojibaba Chowk, Rasashala Chowk and S M Joshi Bridge. Traffic coming from Laxmi Road and Tilak Road will be diverted via Ramanbaug Chowk and Appa Balwant Chowk.
