Mark D’souza, 55, has pitched in his yearly bill for car maintenance in just a month since June.
“I have had to send my car for maintenance twice, spending up to Rs2,000 each time, which I usually have to get done once in six months. Flat tyres are common because of the horrible state of roads,” he said.
“One ends up spending so much unproductive time on the road. Potholes are spotted at the entry and exit of every flyover on the Western Express Highway,” said Ashish Limaye, 39, media and communications professional.
Six MLAs from the Bharatiya Janata Party met metropolitan commissioner UPS Madan on Thursday to express dissatisfaction over potholes.
Madan assured them he would soon appoint a contractor especially for pothole repair on roads under his jurisdiction.
