Mumbai-Goa highway to be repaired by Sep 5: HC told
The court had last week directed the NHAI and the state government to file affidavits stating by when it would repair the highway.
A division bench of Justices A S Oka and Riyaz Chagla was hearing a public interest litigation filed by a lawyer, Owais Pechkar, raising the issue of the bad condition of roads and potholes between Panvel and Goa on the National Highway- 66 every year during monsoons.
In their affidavits, they said they would repair the potholes and make the highway traffic worthy by September 5.
Pechkar, in his petition, had said the Mumbai-Goa National Highway witnesses more than average traffic daily and the pothole-ridden roads pose a serious threat to people.
He also said that several more people were likely to travel on the stretch in the coming months during the upcoming Ganpati festival.
