KAMOTHE: Cidco in­vited ten­ders to fill the pot­holes in Kamothe area on Wed­nes­day. It has al­lo­cated Rs2.61 crore for the pur­pose.

At a num­ber of places due to the wa­ter pipeline leak­ages, there are pot­holes in the mid­dle of the roads.

Those dig­ging up the road to re­pair pipe­lines have not done much to re­pair the pot­holes. This is caus­ing traf­fic prob­lems as the roads have be­come ac­ci­dent­prone.

Roads have been dug up at a num­ber of places to lay ca­bles. The de­bris has been dumped in the area. This has been caus­ing ma­jor has­sles to the driv­ers and pedes­tri­ans.

In some sec­tors, dig­ging has been un­der­taken for cham­bers. These ar­eas have mud all over.

In Sec­tor 20, con­nec­tions are be­ing un­der­take for sewage wa­ter flow.

For this, the mid­dle of the road has been dug up, in­con­ve­nienc­ing mo­torists.

At Sec­tor 21, mas­sive dig­ging work has been un­der­taken op­po­site Haware Nir­mit for lay­ing pipe­lines. Ve­hi­cles have a ma­jor prob­lem travers­ing the area.

Pri­vate telecom com­pa­nies have dug up roads in Kamothe for lay­ing their ca­bles. 4G, 3G, wa­ter and sewage pipeline lay­ing has de­stroyed roads in sev­eral ar­eas.

Cidco of­fi­cials ad­mit­ted that the roads are in a mess.

Ki­ran Phanse, su­per­in­tend­ing en­gi­neer, Cidco, said: “We are giv­ing them 18 months for fill­ing the pot­holes and re­pair­ing roads in var­i­ous sec­tors of the city.”

Girish Kulka­rni, a res­i­dent, said: “The con­di­tion of roads in Kamothe is bad. Cidco had so far not un­der­taken such huge road work. Hope­fully things will im­prove now.”
