Highway tolls shut , leading to pathetic highway road conditions at Thane .

This petition had 214 supporters

Eastern Mumbai express highway from Thane towards kalyan had a toll , which is now shut , leading to non maintenance of the entire stretch from thane to kalyan Bhiwandi by pass. The potholes and craters are so big that on enquiring the local roadside vendors stated that everyday there are end number of cases of tyre blast. Last evening my new car went inside the biggest of the potholes due to low visibility caused by heavy rains and non functional street lights. It damaged my alloy wheels , cracked my windscreen , tyres have the biggest bubble , carriage damaged . It was a lucky escape that me and my friend had . The story could have been completely different and I would not have been in a position to write this petition. When the toll was functional this was never he case , but since the toll is shut the roads are in horrible position. The road safety is the lowest and it is visible that all the cars and trucks slow down yet cannot dodge the potholes , because they are in such large numbers . The road really need heavy repairing and the highway authority needs to take responsibility . Have also heard some people have lost their lives , some young motorists , some family traveling from Nashik to thane lost four members. It's for the safety of everyday travelers .
