The rains might have brought in a welcome relief for Delhiites but the roads in the city have given in to the monsoon mayhem.
Two more roads in the city caved in on Monday, throwing traffic out of gear.
A road outside Nigam Bodh Ghat on the Ring Road caved in developing a four feet deep crater. Another road on the Ring Road on the out gate of ISBT Kashmiri Gate caved in too.
"Traffic was severely affected on these stretches. The stretch had to be cordoned off," said a senior traffic police official.
A total of 25 roads have caved in the past two months in the city. The rain also led to waterlogging in many parts of the city with the MCD receiving 71 complaints.
Both the roads come under jurisdiction of the Public Works Department (PWD). On Saturday two more PWD roads near Games venues had caved in.
The road at Siri Fort, which had been newly built by the PWD, had caved in at Siri Fort Road and one outside the Gate number 1 of Yamuna Sports Complex.
