Colaba residents fume as BMC leaves road dug up, fixes it with paver blocks

For two months, the BMC left a road dug up in Colaba under the pretext of carrying out stormwater drains (SWD) work and then botched it up further by laying paver blocks, claim residents.
On Tuesday, when TOI visited JA Allana Marg, the SWD pipeline work had been completed and paver blocks were being laid. Locals said repairs have been moving at a snail’s pace, causing inconvenience.

Subhash Motwani, president of Clean Heritage Colaba Residents Association (CHCRA) said, “The BMC had decided to do away with paver blocks on all municipal roads. However, here we are seeing that after laying the pipeline, paver blocks are being put over it. The blocks have been so badly placed that they will definitely come off within no time.”
