A 500 metre stretch near the Regional Transport Office (RTO) has developed several potholes. This is the only road providing access to the RTO; it also connects Mahalaxmi (East) to Mumbai Central and has a crowded CNG station.
This road is also used by people to get from Mumbai Central to Haji Ali Dargah and Mahalaxmi Mandir.
Driving is torture and walking a nightmare.
Brian D’Rosario (25), a Tardeo resident, said, “Dirty water accumulates on the road, due to which walking is difficult. When we drive over the potholes, car suspensions get damaged.” Another motorist Dhaval Ashar said, “Often, water from the potholes enters the engines. We have to service our vehicles every month during the monsoon because of this.”
