The civic body said that the technology was being used at the road near the Gundavali Metro station and it would help in providing better roads

The geopolymer concrete enables quick road repairs, reducing traffic interruption. Using the technique, potholes are filled with geopolymer concrete, which blends in perfectly with the pre-existing cement concrete surface to form a sturdy, cohesive road structure

The BMC statement further said that using the 'geopolymer' technology is a big step towards making Mumbai's roadways free of potholes. The eco-friendly building materials also guarantee the resilience and longevity of road surfaces

"The use of technology would offer the commuters and locals a safer and more convenient transit experience," the BMC said

BMC Commissioner and Administrator Bhushan Gagrani highlighted to achieve the goal of pothole-free roads in Mumbai, the roads maintained with geopolymer technology are safe for vehicles, he said, according to the BMC statement

Meanwhile, Maharashtra CM Eknath Shinde had on Friday said that the roads in Mumbai will be pothole-free in the next two years as the concretisation work is currently underway
