The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has restored the caved-in road portion of Netaji Subhashchandra Marg, near Girgaum Chowpatty in the city. The road portion was caved in because of a pipeline burst on the morning of August 24. Now the road has been reopened for traffic.
The 32-inch pipeline burst had created a 20ft by 10ft pit and it was nearly 3m deep. After that, the pipeline was repaired by evening of the same day and work to repair the road started. The road leading to the city’s popular Marine Drive was blocked for traffic since Saturday.
The road was thrown open for vehicular movement in the afternoon after the BMC completed road and pipeline repair works, the BMC authorities said.
