Due to this, there are big potholes on the roads at many main intersections. On many roads, the work done before the monsoon has been damaged. Since these roads were under-constructed, after the works for the same water scheme and drainage channels in the city, the pits have not been repaired properly, as a result, the chambers have collapsed in many areas.

It has directly affected the traffic of the city and the number of accidents has also increased. However, due to continuous rain in the city, the Municipal Corporation could not carry out the repair work on these roads. However, as soon as the rain subsided on Thursday (July 14), the Municipal Corporation started working on the road from the morning itself.
