Mum­bra by­pass a dan­ger zone

Hindustan Times ST (Mumbai) - HT Navi Mumbai Live - - NAVI -

The Mum­bra by­pass — whose pot­holes en­dan­ger com­muters — has turned dan­ger­ous for com­muters on the road be­low.

The stand­ing com­mit­tee of the Thane Mu­nic­i­pal Cor­po­ra­tion said on Fri­day that the route’s wa­ter out­let gushes on to the road with force, in­jur­ing peo­ple.

The au­thor­ity had made small out­lets on the by­pass, from where wa­ter, mud and stones are ex­pelled dur­ing the mon­soon. There is no pipeline through which the wa­ter can flow smoothly.

“The by­pass de­vel­ops pot­holes every mon­soon. This year, due to wa­ter flow­ing from the out­let, a biker met with an ac­ci­dent re­cently,” said Balaji Kakade, mem­ber of the stand­ing com­mit­tee.

“We have re­moved ward-wise ten­ders for pot­hole fill­ing and have started work in Mum­bra and Kalwa si­mul­ta­ne­ously,” said a civic of­fi­cial, re­quest­ing anonymity.
