Set up ‘war rooms’ now to guarantee pothole free roads next monsoon: Bombay High Court

The Bombay High Court on Monday directed the state government and Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) to set up ‘war rooms’ to address the perennial problem of potholes, which gets aggravated during the monsoons.

A division bench of Chief Justice Naresh Patil and Justice MS Karnik said: “Don’t wait till the monsoons arrive. Take this up on war footing, it is a perennial problem. Plan now for the next monsoon.” The bench gave this direction while hearing a suo-moto petition highlighting the problem of potholes plaguing the state.
