Most roads in Kochi and its immediate suburbs witnessed maddening traffic snarls on Monday mainly due to the inordinate delay by the Kochi Corporation and the Public Works Department (PWD) in temporarily restoring or resurfacing areas that were trenched for laying water pipelines and power cables.

A few dozen accidents too occurred after unwary two-wheeler riders and other motorists drove into deep potholes, which remained submerged in flooding caused by rains. Police personnel had a harrowing time managing traffic since the Kerala Water Authority (KWA) had left open many trenches it dug for pipeline work.

Serpentine traffic snarls were witnessed in most parts of the city due to bad condition of roads and people venturing out in cars, said a traffic police official. “The situation will get worse unless KWA and KSEB fill the trenches up to road level. The safety of commuters, including that of hundreds of schoolgoing children, is at stake. On their part, the Kochi Corporation and PWD, which collected road-restoration fee many months ago from these two agencies, must have awarded tenders for repairs during summer months to at least temporarily restore roads. The police have limitations in managing traffic through such shabby roads,” he said.
