Eliminating the inconvenience caused due to poorly scheduled road repair work.
A lot of roads in Mumbai have been in very bad shape and the only thing worse than them is the repair work undertaken for the same by the BMC moving at snails pace and causing inconvenience to everyone. Often the road repair work isn’t optimally scheduled causing unending jams and inconvenience to commuters and road users. In some cases, work that be completed quickly if done at a stretch is distributed over a number of days. With the BMC planning a mega block for road repairs on the lines of ones undertaken by Railways, the matters are only expected to get worse.
Ideally repair work should be scheduled at non peak hours or during the time of the day when the vehicular flow is minimum. When limited amount of work is involved, road repair should be taken up at night time to ensure smooth completion and least inconvenience to the citizens and road users. If a substantial amount of work is to be done, it should be done round the clock at a stretch rather than distributing the same over longer intervals.
We are taking up the issue with the government authorities and the law enforcement agencies directly and also shall request media to help create awareness and pressure on the authorities. We look forward to your suggestion and support to take up better governance.
