Clogged nullahs, open drains, broken footpaths, overflowing garbage bins and uneven roads are a common sight in Mulund. With the civic body doing little to improve the situation, residents are in for a tough time during this monsoon, said citizens who were a part of HT’s audit.

“Neither major nor minor nullahs have been cleaned. Culverts are blocked, retaining walls are broken and silt that has been removed is lying on footpaths,” said V Subramania m, a local activist.

In fact, parts of Mulund (West) also saw water logging through the weekend. Ramesh Agarwal, president, NGO Samaj Vikas Sangh said, “The debris from a demolition drive at Nagsen Nagar had not been removed and caused flooding near Middle Town area.”

The panel found arterial roads such as LBS Marg and Mulund-Goregaon Link Road full of potholes. “It takes an hour to reach LBS Marg from the Eastern Expressway via Link road although it is 1.5km,” said Prakash Paddikal, president, Hillside Residents’ Welfare Association.

However, Chanda Jadhav, assistant municipal commissioner, T-ward said, “I’ve inspected all minor nullahs and desilting work has been completed.
