This photo was taken at 1330 hrs on 13 Oct at Pallod Farms 2, off Baner Road. It shows faulty construction of asphalt roads by the Pune Municipal Corporation.
Depressions develop due to improper soling and inadequate compacting, making the road sink due to load of traffic. Such depressions accumulate rain water and form puddles making them breeding grounds for mosquitoes.
The adjacent footpaths do not have drains under them for the rain/storm water to drain off.
No outlets have been provided in the footpath for the accumulated water to drain out.
Poorly-constructed speedbreakers further prevents the draining of water.
