Mumbai: Paver blocks a graver danger, say motorists

Several agencies have adopted paver blocks as a quick fix for potholes that opened up after the heavy downpour this week, but it is a bane for motorists on the Western Express Highway who complain of the loose blocks proving to be a bigger risk than potholes.

Experts agree but say a thorough job can ensure that the blocks don’t give way or break loose.

“They get dislodged from the potholes and become dangerous as tyres could skid on them,” said Ganesh Rane, a resident of Malad who commutes on his bike to SEEPZ.
