sec-14-truck1Navi Mumbai is called the city of the 21st century but even today dug up roads are a common sight here affecting the pedestrians and vehicle owners alike. Navi Mumbai has emerged as a well-developed city with proper infrastructure. But one common problem that the city has been facing is the incessant digging of roads by authorities to carry out various development projects. The constant work of digging has inconvenienced pedestrians and vehicle owners alike. Take a look at this internal road of sec 14 Vashi. This road was dug up more than 1.5 months ago by to lay sewerage pipelines. The pipes were laid but the entire work was done in such an unsystematic manner, that the road was not filled for many days. Later on, mud was thrown to cover the road, which was not even smoothened out leading to uneven roads in this area. And today, NMMC’s own garbage truck got stuck here. If the truck’s speed would have been more, there were chances of it turning sideways. And this is not the first time that the road has been dug up. In the last six months this same road has been dug four times, first for repair, then for Pratibha water pipeline, then for Mahanagar gas and now for sewerage lines. This exposes how ill equipped and ill studied NMMC Engineering Dept is. Ironically citizens of Sector 14, Vashi are facing the nightmarish rides on these roads despite the fact the Corporator of the ward is Thane Environment Minister and NCP leader Ganesh Naik’s brother Dyaneshwar Naik. First Mayor Dr. Sanjeev Naik who was the corporator prior to him is still actively involved in the ward. Everyone knows that the NMMC functions under them but despite innumerable complaints and appeals to the corporator, this road continues to be a commuter and pedestrian’s nightmare.
