Mumbai Traffic Police Forced To Fill Potholes! .
Mumbaikars are frustrated by the ‘pothole menace’! The media is tired of exposing potholes in Mumbai. A Mumbaikar, Navin Lade, has been spearheading a war against potholes since years and has registered Mumbai’s name in the Guinness Book of World Records and the Limca Book of Records as the city with the most number of potholes. What is heartrending is the sorrowful tale of an aged father, Dadarao Bilhore, who has taken upon himself to fill the potholes in Mumbai after his 16-year-old son was killed in a pothole accident!! And, what is most deplorable is that the Mumbai Traffic Police, whose duty is to control traffic, has been forced to come on the road and fill potholes!!!
Yes, you have read it right! RTO officials in Mulund and Bhandup, irritated by the bumper-to-bumper traffic during peak hours, have been forced to fill the potholes along with the crater-filled patches on LBS Marg along Bhandup and Mulund. According to an RTO official, the BMC had filled the patches several times, but each time after a brief spell of the rain, the material used to mend the road gets washed off and the potholes spring up causing a traffic jam. Hence, frustrated by consistent pothole menace, the RTO staff fills the potholes!!
What may stun readers is that BMC is using the expensive and advanced technology of Cold Mix to fix the road. But, alas, the lazy contractors and the negligent BMC engineers are not sincere in their duty. They do a haphazard job and rush back to the comfort zone of their office cabins, caring little about the trauma faced by poor Mumbaikars.
