Traffic jams and bumpy rides are now a thing of the past for motorists driving over the Vakola flyover as the potholes have finally been filled in

A bumpy ride: Motorists had to endure a pothole-ridden drive over the Vakola flyover and also bumper-to-bumper traffic owing to the huge potholes that were created after a single heavy shower. Motorists complained that the road was uneven and they had to wait in traffic jams for more than an hour owing to the cratered road. Pic/Abhinav Kocharekar

Filling in work: After MiD DAY’s report on the potholes on the northern stretch of the Vakola flyover, MEPL authorities, responsible for the maintenance of the road, slowly began the tarring work on the flyover and said that the potholes would be filled in by Saturday evening. Pic/Suresh KK

And they are gone! And two days later, motorists zoom over the flyover after the MEPL authorities finished the tarring work on the Vakola flyover. Motorists said they were glad that they would no longer endure bumpy rides and traffic jams. Pic/Satyajit Desai
