This monsoon, commuters will live their worst nightmare due to the unfinished and haphazard concretization work of the Thane Belapur Road. The haphazard concretization work of the Thane Belapur Road can spell major inconvenience for commuters this monsoon. The entire stretch is being concretized in patches and phases wise and while commuters and residents living alongside the road waited with patience for the work to get over, they have reason for running out of patience. For the work that was to meet a completion deadline of 2007 has not been done even its past May 2008. However if one drives from Koperkhairane, they can see the snail pace and sub standard work being done by the NMMC contractor PBA Infrastructure. The worst situation prevails at Digha area where the work has not even reached 50%. The debris from roads has been dumped in open drains. On the same stretch, construction work on the drain too is being done but there are little chances that this too will be completed on time before the first showers hit the city on June 8. The commuters and locals who have to face the brunt of the haphazard style of concretization work of the contractor voiced their frustration. No points for guessing that this monsoon, the Thane Belapur road will continue to be an epicenter of inconveniences for citizens and commuters but at NMMC, who cares.
