The service road opposite to Nerul D Y Patil Stadium can be fatal for the drivers who drive their vehicles. Many trucks keep on doing rounds on the roads. There are numbers of potholes on the road which has not been yet repaired and rain has already started in the city

The deadline for the completion of the road work and also the covering of potholes was 31st May or till 7th June, 2019 by Navi Mumbai Municipal Corporation (NMMC) but it seems that the civic body is only doing the inspection but the place where actual work is needed is left out by the authority.

On the service road many vehicular moments take place and even the pedestrians walk on those road. The Maruti Suzuki showroom is located in that lane of MIDC and people go for test drive or to inquire about the car and thus the big potholes can be dangerous for them.

One of senior official from civic body responsible for the filling of potholes on the condition of anonymity said, “ The problems about the potholes on the service road has been brought to our notice by the citizens and soon we will be looking after it and will try to fill the potholes before the arrival of heavy rains.”

Pratik Yadav, Sales Manager, Maruti Suzuki, Nerul, said, “Whenever I travel on the bike from Koperkhairane to my office I have to take care of the potholes. All the potholes are very big and it can be fatal. We have complained through letters several times to the civic authority but our complaints went into the deaf ears of the authority.”

Sudhir Yadav, Truck Driver who regularly drives on this road, said, “Before rain too this potholes would make our life hell. Driving truck on this service road is a risky affair but we have to do it because it is our work. As now the rain has arrived the potholes can be more dangerous for us.”
