Suggestions and Objections to the Elevated Metro Influence Zone

National Society for Clean Cities, Pune
Pune a Clean City - Clean in Every Which Way 
Hi there all,
The elevated Metro and particularly PMC’s proposal for allowing  construction with 4 FSI norm 500metres on both sides of the metro throughout the 31.5 km of its route, has been the talk of the town.
This increase to 4 FSI for a 31.5 km by 1km swath of skyscrapers through the most congested areas of Pune is going to be a nightmare and a life changing experience for not only the citizens staying in the neighbourhood of the Metro route but also for all Punekars. There is no planning for infrastructure, parks, and other amenities to cater to the increased population who will reside here.
The elevated Metro passing through the heavily crowded and busiest of Pune roads will reduce the road width making travel a horrendous experience.
Let us all object to object to this arbitrary, ill planned proposal and at least attempt to halt the ongoing destruction of our city.
I am enclosing below a draft of a brief letter objecting to the Elevated Metro & the 4 FSI plan. All you have to do is to send the letter to the City Engineer:
