Post-rain, driving proves nightmare in City 14.4.2015 deccanherald.com
The City road, filled with potholes, became all the more difficult to ply on as the rain in the last four days has washed away the asphalt at important points. The showers were welcomed otherwise - as the mercury level was set to touch 40 degrees - but the rains added to the woes of the citizens who have already been frustrated with the poor infrastructure. As the rain pounded the City since Saturday night, the roads that were already in bad shape turned all the more unusable. The worst-affected roads are the JC Road, Avenue Road, the roads to KR Market, Banashankari, Sarakki, Shivajinagar, Ulsoor as well as the road connecting Banashankari to Jayanagar 4th Block and at the Residency Road-Brigade Road Junction. The missing slab stones from the pavements of the road from the National College till the Vani Vilas Junction have made the stretch not pliable for even pedestrians, let alone vehicle users. A commuter who had been waiting for the BMTC bus near the National College on JC Road said that the ...
