I was in Mumbai yesterday. It was pouring cats and dogs. But what struck me the most was deteriorating conditions of Mumbai roads. Here was my route and roads log Wakad (Pune) : Mumbai-Bangalore bypass is in good shape. Expressway : 99.9% percent butter smooth road. Is patchy near Khandala and Lonavala exits. Navi Mumbai to Vashi Creek bridge : There were few potholes here and there but could be easily avaoided for a smooth ride. Vikroli-Jogeshwari Link road : Horrendous road with equally horrendous traffic situation. I think traffic and road quality was interlinked. What is BMC /MMRDA digging for Harappa / Mohenjo-Daro remains using World Bank money ? SEEPZ : Useless roads. I mean there were craters not potholes. Vile-Parle : Good roads, crowded. Oh I really miss the good old Vile-Parle of my childhood, small lanes , sparse traffic where I could cycle my way to my school . Now I fear to even cross the roads.
