Pune's Development Pangs


What's happening to Pune? Struggling with load-shedding and crumbling infrastructure—bad roads, streetlights not working.

For the last three days there were no lights on the Yerwada bridge (8 pm).
The stretch of Nagar Road from Shastrinagar onwards is being concretized so one-half is blocked and on the other half dividers are kept that change daily and there are no streetlights. I've to turn right against the traffic and the turning changes daily. Sometimes there's a divider, sometimes there's no divider, and the streetlights are never on. One-half of the road is being concretized is not the reason for keeping the streetlights switched off.
