Deputy Commissioner of Police (Traffic) Nandkumar Chougle said, "Potholed roads are a major concern for us. In a damaged stretch, vehicles cannot move beyond a speed of 10-20 kmph, instead of the usual 30-40 kmph. We have deployed 1,200 policemen only to maintain traffic at the bad roads."
"The situation in places like Chembur, Sion, Bandra, Ghatkopar, where the roads are made of paver blocks, is the worst, as the blocks get dislodged, creating craters. We are in dialogue with the BMC road officials, but the situation is becoming unmanageable. Even flyovers have craters."Photo courtesy: Mid-Day.com
