COMMUNICATIONS

ROADS

At the beginning of British rule there were no made roads and no lines of traffic fit for wheels. The chief lines of communication were from Ahmadnagar and Kopargaon. From Ahmadnagar the chief lines were the Ahmadnagar-Nasik route, ninety-seven miles, passing through Rahuri, Sangamner and Sinnar; the Ahmadnagar-Kopargaon route, sixty-one miles, through Rahuri, Kolhar and Ashtagaon; the Ahmadnagar-Malegaon route, 119 miles, through Rahuri, Puntamba, Vaijapur and the Kasari pass, and thirty-two miles further to Dhulia; the Ahmadnagar-Aurangabad route, seventy-five miles, either through the Nimbedehera or the Jeur pass, and then through Pravara-Sangam and Velunja, and branch passing to Jalna; the Ahmadnagar-Sholapur route 129 miles, through Mandva, Mirajgaon, Pategaon, Chapadgaon, Karmala and Madha; the Ahmadnagar-Satara route, 120 miles, through Valki, the Sakli pass, Kothul, Kolgaon, Patas, Supa and Guluncha; the Ahmadnagar-Pune route, seventy-seven miles, through Akolner, Ranjangaon and Vaghote, and seventy-one miles further through Panvel to Bombay; the Ahmadnagar-Kalyan route, 130 miles, through Junnar and the Malsej pass, and twenty miles further to Bombay; the Ahmadnagar-Gangakhed route, 151 miles, through the Darur pass. From Kopargaon besides the Malegaon route a line passed towards Pune 119 miles. None of these routes were more than fair-weather tracks.

About 1850 a large traffic from Berar went to Bombay by the Imampur or Jeur pass in Ahmadnagar, and the post line from Bombay to Calcutta also crossed Ahmadnagar and went by the Jeur pass to Aurangabad. The Pune-Ahmadnagar road was unmetalled but bridged and fairly ditched. During the dry season it was a fair driving road; during the rains it was indifferent throughout, and at many points bad. It was built for military purposes as Ahmadnagar was the bead-quarters of the Bombay Artillery, and it had proved of great advantage to trade. Although it crossed a comparatively poor country, it was the chief feeder of the Pune-Panvel road. With its continuation through the Nizam's territory to Aurangabad it drew much of the traffic of Berar.

Much of Berar traffic was turned south at Ajanta from which it reached Bombay. The route from north Ahmadnagar which ran through Rahuri towards Nasik had a made portion of eleven miles. The Pune-Sholapur fair-weather road passed through the district. Another fair-weather road was from Sirur to Shrigonda. Two lines from Ahmadnagar west to Junnar and the Sahyadris were scarcely passable by carts, and were used by Vanjaris. In the south of the district there were no made roads and the badness of the roads and several small passes were serious barriers to internal traffic. The three leading lines for cart traffic were: east to west from Barsi to Karmala in Sholapur by Aslunde and Pedgaon towards Pune, from Balaghat and Kharda in Jamkhed by Nimbadi and Chambhar-gonde (Shrigonda) towards the north-west and south-east and from Ahmadnagar to Karmala and Sholapur along the right bank of the Sina. There were no cart-roads in Balaghat hills. At the beginning of the nineties of the last century the district contained 301 miles of provincial and 229 miles of local fund roads besides the roads of twenty-five miles which were charged to imperial revenue. Account of the six provincial roads existing then is given below:-

(i) The Imampur-Toka road, 27 miles in length, was bridged and metalled. There were ferry services near Toka in the rainy season.

(ii) The Ahmadnagar-Paithan road, of 52 miles, was unbridged but metalled for the first forty miles.

(iii) The Ahmadnagar-Sirur road, of 31 miles, which was a section of Ahmadnagar-Pune road, was metalled, drained and bridged.

(iv) The Ahmadnagar-Pimpalgaon road, of 60 miles, was a section of Pune-Malegaon road. It was unmetalled and unbridged.

(v) The Ahmadnagar-Daund road, of about 45 miles, was metalled, drained and bridged. There was a ferry service across Bhima near Daund.

(vi) The Ambeghadgaon-Nandur-Shingote road, of 31 miles, which was a section of Pune-Nasik road, was gravelled and partly bridged.

There were ferry services across the Pravara near Ambeghadgaon. The local fund roads existing in 1884 were as under:-

(1) Ahmadnagar-Shevgaon road of 42 miles, (2) Ahmadnagar-Karmala road of 48 miles, (3) Ahmadnagar-Aneghat road of 33 miles, (4) Ahmadnagar-Chinchodi road of 15 miles, (5) Shendi-Vamburi road of eight miles, (6) Nandur-Kolhar road of 28 miles, (7) Loni-Bori road of 58 miles, (8) Parner-Supa road of 7 miles, and (9) Parner-Chincholi road of four miles.

Besides, there were some roads which served as connecting links with railway stations which were as under:-

(i) Kopargaon station road (3 miles), (ii) Rahate-Chitali (eleven miles), (iii) Nevasa-Belapur (22 miles), (iv) Loni-Belapur (15 miles), (v) Belapur station road (four miles), (vi) Khospuri-Vamburi (ten miles), (vii) Belvandi station road (three miles), and (viii) Shrigonda-Pimpri (four miles). [This account of roads in the last century is based on the description given in the old District Gazetteer of Ahmadnagar.]
