BMC Completes Only 21km Road Concretisation So Far; Faces Criticism

According to a latest data, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has completed only 15 per cent of road concretisation work so far. The work was undertaken by the civic body last year following Maharashtra Chief Minister Eknath Shinde's directives to eliminate potholes.

Out of the 397 kilometres of cement concrete (CC) roads across five zones in the city, the work of a mere 21 km has been completed.

In Zone III in Andheri (East), 5 kilometres of road work have been completed, while Zone IV in Andheri (West) fares marginally better with completion of 10 kilometres.

Further progress in Zones V in Chembur, VI in Ghatkopar East, and VII in Kandivali East has been undertaken with only 2 kilometres of CC road works being completed in each zone.

The BMC has also faced criticism for the slow progress of the road concretisation work. If reports are to be believed, the work is on hold because of the monsoon season.

This development after former BJP corporator last week wrote a letter to BMC chief Bhusan Girgani and additional municipal commissioner (projects) Abhijit Bangar, highlighting the delay in executing CC road works across the city and demanding actions against constrictors for the delay, reports HT.

The delay in the road concretisation work would result in people experiencing bumpy rides on substandard roads during the rainy season, BJP corporator added.
