Narendra Salunkhe, assistant commissioner of the PMC projects department, told Mirror, “I instructed project department officials to visit the spot. The help of the road department’s mobile maintenance van was taken to clear the potholes immediately after the problem was identified.“
Motorists, meanwhile, were thanking their stars. Said Prashant Wagle, “At least PMC cleared the potholes immediately after the issue was reported -a huge relief indeed for thousands of commuters who use this flyover daily. Better protocols need to be set for road and flyover maintenance so that such a hassle does not take place repeatedly.“ Another commuter, Ashutosh Ubale, added, “I am happy the problem is solved as at least motorists can use this stretch safely now. We are all fortunate no major accident occurred during this time. There is always high risk during this season.“
