CRATER MUMBAI BMC fails to start work on potholes

Only Two Out Of Ninety-Five Potholes Reported On Website Have Been Filled, While Rains Continue To Create Craters

Though citizens and civic engineers have begun to report potholes on the BMC's tracking website, few are getting filled. A total of 95 potholes have been reported over the last week. While the BMC has planned to fill 12 of these, only two have actually been filled.
    Of the 95 potholes, around 55 have been reported by engineers of the roads department, and the rest by engineers at the ward level. No pothole reported at the ward level has been considered yet for filling.
    Civic officials say contractors are yet to mobilize machinery and labour, and this is the reason for the delay.
    According to data on the BMC's pothole-tracking website, a total of 26,285 potholes

were reported since last monsoon to June 1, of which 25,026 have been attended to. Most of the unattended potholes are ones reported on roads managed by other agencies, like the MMRDA, PWD, Mhada and BPT. A total of 883 potholes were reported on roads belonging to these agencies.
    Meanwhile, civic standing committee members have come down heavily on additional municipal commissioner Aseem Gupta, who is in charge of roads, saying that all projects in his department are pending.
    Former deputy mayor and BJP corporator Shailaja Girkar said Gupta had promised her that the bridge being built on Poisar river would be completed before the monsoon. "That bridge is being built for the last four years and has still not been completed. I do not know why this work is taking so much time and why no action has been initiated against the contractor."

SIGNAL FAILURE DISRUPTS LOCALS ON HARBOUR LINE
    
Services on the Harbour Line ran late by 30-40 minutes during Friday evening peak hours due to signal failure caused by waterlogging between Wadala Road and Guru Teg Bahadur Nagar stations. "The signal failure occurred around 6.20pm, forcing trains to run at restricted speed on the stretch. This resulted in a bunching of services, leading to delays," said a CR spokesperson. Services on the Main Line were affected as well, making trains run behind schedule by 10-15 minutes. TNN
