The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has created a new road on the stretch of Sion-Dharavi Link Road that had inconvenienced motorists and commuters earlier.

This came after a report by mid-day which stated the condition of the pothole-ridden roads which has plagued the city of Mumbai.

According to Mushtaq Ansari, who has been protesting about the issue of potholes in Mumbai by posting photos and pictures on social media in a statement, said, the civic body responded by starting the work on the Sion-Dharavi Link Road about two-three days back. Moreover, he stated that a 300-metre-long and six metres wide concrete road of six-inch thickness has been built.

Moreover, as a consequence of heavy rainfall and consequent flooding, potholes have emerged on the Mumbai roads in several parts across the city. Several commuters have raised the issue using social media, however, the civic body has asserted that they have received complaints about only 500 potholes on its mobile application.

Although the movement of vehicles on the roads has been less this year due to the outbreak of the coronavirus, the pothole issue still remains. Earlier, there have been complaints of potholes being developed at the newly constructed SNDT Nullah bridge on Juhu Tara Road.

Furthermore, the bridge was closed for traffic last year as it was in a bad condition and was rebuilt by the BMC. Only after a fortnight of its opening, the bridge developed potholes creating an issue for the commuters.
