The road less taken

Finally, 'The Road Less Taken' is ready to be taken more often. I am refering to the infamous Koramangala 80 Ft road. After a year of inactivity, the government has finally got its act together. That the poor quality of the rework shows is altogether a different issue.

The 80ft road and the Domulur flyover have been ice-breakers for many a motorist stuck in traffic jams. Folks had to find alternate routes due to the unavailability of this road. An alternate route used to be the Ashwini Layout/Ejipura road. A heavy downpour would virtually seal off that route too.

Well, let us see how much the newly laid road can take (It is already showing signs of wear and tear)

@ioiio - It (doesn't) happen only in India :)

@Gayathri - It connects Koramangala to the Inter Ring road (which in turn connects to the Airport Road)!

@Arun - So true !

Ah! The roads in Pune are pathetic.
And they dig up all the roads here, in the name of repairs, just before the arrival of monsoons! No guess then that the repair work patches cant stand against the monsoons!
