Every year more than 10000 people are loosing their life in Road Accident. This Number is more than number of people are died due to terrorist attack. Potholes and Negligence in safety measures are highly responsible for this. So, Bad condition and pothole has become the biggest enemy of people in this Country. But, neither government not any agency who are responsible for road are serious about this. people are facing this problem from long time but till now no concrete step taken by Government. No accountability has been set for any one for Bad condition of roads and deaths happen due to Potholes. 

Most of the Roads in Mumbai are in bad condition and has sequence of potholes. But the department like PWD, MSRDC, BMC, MMRDA, CIDCO and all the Municipal Corporations have completely failed to give safe and secure road to the people. These authorities start the maintenance just before monsoon, which is nothing but the way to fool the people. Few years back Mumbai was known for good rain, but now Mumbai is known for the potholes and road accidents in monsoon. Maximum roads in Mumbai come in the worst condition after initial rain only. Potholes on the Road is showing the actual efficiency of Departments and Corporation. 

Maximum Highway has become a horror highway with sequence of Potholes, No Street Light, No safety signboards, No fencing and signboards at the Median. One of them is Sion Panvel Highway which is main Road to connect two major city of india, Mumbai and bangalore is in pathetic condition this year. Huge potholes are at the maximum places like Kharghar, Juinagar and vashi just before Toll. Due to these potholes large traffic jam are taking place, life of people have become stressful as people are loosing lot of Time, Money and peace.  As per my RTI more than 130 people have lost their life and more than 300 accidents have taken place in two years just in stretch of 18 kms. And this highest in all the highways in such short distance of 18 kms. The reason is same  - BAD CONDITION OF ROADS. 

PWD has constructed this Road 4 years back but still lot of work is pending. More than 2 million people are suffering because of this lazy approach. Many accidents are taking place daily. But no concrete action has been taken this year to maintain the road and its lying in worst condition. I dunno what type of maintenance PWD is doing on this road. Although They are collecting tolls from commercial vehicles at Kopara. The same story is with MSRDC which is collecting tolls are all entry point of Mumbai through their contractor MEP. the Bridges which is under MEP maintenance scope are without street light and full of Potholes. 

Then why we are forced to pay the Toll if the authorities and government are not maintaining the Road properly?.

This year in initial monsoon only we saw that maximum roads are water logged whether it’s highway or inside the city. Maximum roads are full of Potholes and maximum low line areas are water logged after small Rain only. Non of Corporation has any intention to work for the welfare. All are busy in blame game.

They have not done the drainage cleaning properly and this has resulted in water logging at all the places. In 2017, One lady Shilpa Puri Lost her life in Kharghar as she skid from her scooty and cane coming from backside went above her. It was clear from the cctv that she skidded due to Potholes but CIDCO, who is the responsible authority has no regret and no pressure of that because Police never file case on Government agencies. This is really a unfortunate face of our system. We can see huge number of Potholes in maximum Roads of kharghar this year too, No lesson learnt from last year case.  

Potholes maintenance have become the regular business of contractors and I think officers are enjoying the potholes maintenance too. But because of this greed people are loosing their life and suffering everyday. Just before monsoon authorities start their work which is not of any use. Its the game of corruption where contractor and authorities both loot so much money in fake maintenance.

Other Roads Kalyan Bhiwandi Road, Thane Ghodbunder, Eastern Express Highway and many internal  turned into extremely bad mode because of Potholes, many accidents are taking place every year, many families lost their members in Road accident, But no lesson learned. Roads are still in Bad condition. We are not able to understand the intention of Government on This. Why you are playing with the life of people. 

 We are not paying taxes to enjoy your ministers and officers, we are paying for safety, Roads and development of country. So, I will request to take appropriate action before common public take action against administration. 

Navi Mumbai is suffering from Huge traffic jam and only responsible agency is PWD. Who has completely failed to maintain the Road. As well as poor work of Mep at Belapur bridge has led the road blockage from belapur to Kharghar, although they are collecting huge amount of rupees in toll.

I have filled PUBLIC INTEREST LITIGATION in BOMBAY HIGH COURT on 17th July 2018 for the bad Condition of Roads, expecting fair judgement from Judiciary in Public Interest. But till then we need that government must act and provide us with our FUNDAMENTAL RIGHt, That is GOOD ROAD. and we all are paying all the taxes including DADAGIRI TAX (i. e. Toll Tax) to government for this only. 

WE WANT SAFE AND POTHOLE ROAD all across INDIA. As a responsible Citizen we have some request which you must accept for Public Welfare. 

1.  Toll collection must be stopped on Immediate basis as they have failed to maintain the Roads. Instead they must be fined and paid to Vehicle owner whose vehicle has been damaged due to potholes.

2. Action on the officers and contractors who did poor construction of Road. As well as blacklist the contractors who have done the construction of the Roads which are in poor condition. 

3. Government must pay the compensation to the families whose family member lost their life in Road accident as well as to people who injured in accident due to bad condition of Road. 

4.Citizen Participation to Monitor and Advise for Road Construction and Maintenance.

5. There must be Board on all the Roads with proper contact number and email id of the authorities responsible for maintenance of road.

Hopefully, This petition who has signed by so many people will be taken on Priority by the Government and Judiciary.
