Margao: A portion of the road near Ambora, Loutolim, developed cracks leading the police to place barricades to warn the motorists.
Sources said that the road was hot-mixed just before the rains. “What worsened the situation was that the bitumen was laid on the road even before the freshly dug up trenches were properly restored and the earth allowed to properly settle,” a source said.
Curtorim MLA Aleixo Reginaldo Lourenco said that he was monitoring the situation. “It doesn’t appear to be a major problem. The road will be restored soon,” he said. [TOI]
