Roads with potholes or Potholes with roads.Bangalore city had 9,000 potholes three weeks back,15,000 last week and the latest count is 33,621 potholes. A 100% increase in a span of three weeks. The corporation is filling as many as possible still 50% need to be filled. Bangalore had 1,940 km of arterial and sub-arterial roads in 2014, not sure of the present state. The rains are causing the potholes and preventing their repairs also.
The potholes cannot be filled effectively as the wetness prevents it to stay intact. I am sure, more or less this would be the condition in many cities. Rains have created havoc or have exposed the quality of roadworks.
Perhaps if at the vital traffic roads are surfaced with good quality work, we would have lesser problems. Easier said than done.
