A STRETCH full of large potholes along the Jerbai Wadia Marg in Parel has been unattended by the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) for the last month.
There are large potholes in front of the petrol pump near the Tata hospital, as well as between the pump and Mane Master Chowk.
The area around Mane Master Chowk is full of potholes on both sides and there is hardly any smooth road.

Some evidence that the BMC has recently carried out patchwork is evident.
However, the materials used for repairs have come dislodged and the holes are resurfacing. Locals say that BMC has not carried out proper repairs, and has instead always done temporary patchwork.
The broken down stretch is also inconveniencing patients who visit the Tata, KEM and Wadia hospitals in the vicinity.
A resident said that since a large number of patients come to these hospitals, BMC should ensure proper repair work on such roads.
“The road condition was pathetic a week ago. It seems that they did some patchwork but that has also exposed their shoddy work.
Due to heavy traffic flow, the material used in the patchwork has come to the surface in just a few days,” said Anna Khambe, a resident, adding that many bikes are skidding in the stretch.
Sunil More, a local Congress corporator, admitted that the road has become slippery and he is following up with ward officials for repairs.
“There were big potholes on the stretch posing threat to lives of motorists. Recently, the temporary patchwork was carried out on the stretch. Since the sand and macadam has come up on the surface, the road has become slippery,” More said, adding that he would ask civic officials to take the repair work on priority.
