BMC should make arrangements before rains

Friday, February 02, 2018

Mumbai roads continue to be in a bad condition and the problems go unabated as more and more potholes continue to haunt the city. Apart from the potholes menace the city also has to deal with tree falls and building collapses, which cause ripples in the minds of people. As the roads are filled just as a stop gap arrangement, filling potholes is becoming a difficult task under the present circumstances. There is no end solution as the BMC plays the blame game and tries for an escape route for all problems. Over 700 roads in the city need immediate repair work and if delayed till the monsoons the situation will become unbearable in case of heavy water logging which is associated with the season. With just four months left for monsoon rains to kick in, it is time to have a serious thought about the pending work. BMC should work overtime from now on to avoid lagging behind in the herculean task of having smoother roads in the city. The repair work now underway should be completed first before taking up additional work load. It is a hard task for the contractors to complete the job in all the pockets leading to the main roads, subways, fly overs, freeways and other connecting roads at focal points. A thorough follow up and monitoring by the corporation can solve the 90 per cent of the road repair work before June this year and the rest can be completed as per schedule before the onset of monsoons in the second or the third week of June. BMC should buck up and start the road repair work soon.
