AT the PCMC-run swimming pool on the Kasarwadi-Gurav Pimple Road, swimmers are finding it difficult to come out of the pool as the steps on the steel staircase, used by swimmers to climb out of the pool, are missing at two spots. Ravindra Asadhe, a regular swimmer, said the steps had been missing for sometime. "I joined three months ago, and since then I have not seen the steps. In the absence of the steps, it is highly inconvenient to come out of the pool," he said. When contacted, Additional Municipal Commissioner Prakash Kadam said he would look into the matter.
Water-logged subway hits traffic
Vehicles from Sangvi, Gurav Pimple and Rahatni that emerge at Shankarwadi on the Pune-Mumbai Highway are finding it difficult to cross the water-logged subway under the railway tracks. Motorists and two-wheeler riders said whether it rains or not, the sub-way is always water-logged. Chetan Kachi of Nehrunagar, who regularly uses the road, said, "Not only is the subway water-logged, it is also in a bad condition for months now. The subway comes under the PCMC. It is amazing that nobody is bothered," he said. PCMC officials said they repair roads after the monsoon.
