As the Ganeshotsav looms just around the corner, the Pune City Traffic Police have put in place diversions and road closures to handle the anticipated influx of devotees in the market areas ahead of the festival and especially on the day of Ganesh Chaturthi.

To ensure a seamless flow of traffic and minimize congestion in key locations where Ganesha idols are sold, the Pune Traffic Police has issued essential directives. These regulations prohibit non-essential vehicles from entering specified areas during the mentioned period, allowing smooth movement for emergency services like fire brigade, police vehicles, and ambulances.

Alternative routes have been provided to guide motorists in reaching their destinations efficiently.
