This is to inform that the road leading to Gilbert Hill oad opposite Bharti Vidya Bhavan’s College in Andheri has many potholes. It gets flooded just after an hour of continuous rainfall and the BMC is trying to install new drainage pipes, the work ideally should have ended before the monsoon and it hasn’t. In fact it’s adding to the existing problems of water clogging.

At the junction of Bhavans College and JP Road, an open manhole has become a cause of serious concern. A complain has been lodged with BMC on 25/05/2011 but no response received so far.
When the road gets waterlogged, one cannot see the manhole at all. It poses a great threat to school children, senior citizens and pedestrians who walk through the area.

The It is great to know that Hindustan Times is writing about the sorry conditions of the roads in Mumbai. The approach road to the Bhandup (West) railway station is in a mess. The width of the road is not more than 15 feet. There is traffic plying both ways on this road, which also has a bus stop, auto rickshaw stand, and several vegetable vendors.
The skywalk built above this road is sparingly used and its thick pillars just consume more space on the already crowded road. The situation becomes worse during the monsoons.
I am writing this mail to highlight the problem of water clogging at several places in Chembur. I would like to congratulate Hindustan Times team on the success of your efforts (June 14, 2011 article) for highlighting citizen’s problems during the monsoons.
As part of the ongoing monorail’s construction in Chembur, many roads are poorly maintained especially the stretch near Nityanand Society in Chembur Camp and Manish Vijay Society in Vashi Naka. The road passing through the RCF factory has been reconstructed several times but soon enough the potholes reappear again.

Every time it rains, waterlogging outside Oberoi Mall on the Film City Road becomes inevitable. Same problem persists outside the Goregaon station in the East - one has to wade in dirty water. This is an annual feature for the last 15 years.
The phenomenon also occurs on Goregaon-Mulund Link Road where the road is full of potholes. Most autos refuse to take the lane.
