1200mm diameter pipe bursts underground

Water department has said that the workers are going to work overnight and the problem will be solved by the intervening night of Thursday and Friday

The Parel TT flyover had been shut due to underground leakage of 1200mm diameter pipe on yesterday morning. The cause of the leakage has not been found yet.

Thought it was peak hours, south-bound traffic was diverted towards Naigon cross road (Char rasta) and Babasaheb Ambedkar road. The diverted vehicles  were also using the busy road below the flyover, which has led to traffic snarls in and around Parel. There was also backlog on both ends of the flyover, with a traffic jam extending several kilometres long, all the way to Dadar. “We have shut Parel flyover to traffic as of now, until the work is complete, said a traffic police official.

The leakage was reported after 6.30am. “We started repair work immediately as soon as the leakage was reported,” said Kishore Desai, F/South ward officer. “Water supply to the area was not  affected as the supply timing was in the morning (from 4am to 7am). Water department had said that the workers are going to work overnight and the problem will solve by the intervening night between Thursday and Friday,” Desai added.
