After numerous failed attempts at fixing pothole-riddled roads in the city, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has now decided to manufacture the pothole mix at its plant at Worli.

The civic body, with the help of a German firm, will manufacture pothole mix that it had imported in the past.

Officials said that even though the civic body will be using better quality material, the move will help the BMC save money.

The decision to manufacture pothole mix was taken so that the expenditure on material imported from Austria and Israel could be reduced.
