Subways to come up at 7 level crossings in Pune Division

PUNE: The Central Railway (Pune division) has planned to eliminate seven level-crossing gates on the Pune-Miraj section and a few more on the Daund-Baramati section.

The gates on Satara-Koregaon, Koregaon-Rahimatpur, Bhilvadi-Kirloskarwadi, Rahimatpur-Taragaon and Taragaon-Masur sections will be replaced by subways at a cost of Rs 4 crore. They will enable people to cross the tracks safely, restrict accidents and reduce the waiting time for people during train crossing, officials said.
