The first rain of this 12 months’s monsoon season in Mumbai on Wednesday triggered water-logging in varied elements of town, prompting the visitors police to close 4 subways and forcing motorists to desert their autos on roads.
The metropolis police appealed to Mumbaikars to not step out of their houses unnecessarily, and cautioned them in opposition to travelling to a number of the inundated areas.
While there have been fewer autos on town roads amid the downpour, motorcyclists and different two-wheeler riders had been unable to maneuver their autos at a number of the flooded locations.
The visitors police closed Milan, Khar, Andheri and Malad subways for motorists as a result of water-logging at these locations.
“We have closed the subways as a result of water-logging of as much as two ft at these junctions. However, visitors is easy on the SV Road, Linking Road and the Western Express Highway. So far, no visitors congestion has been reported,” Deputy Commissioner of Police (Traffic), Western Suburbs, Somnath Gharge instructed PTI.
Heavy rains trigger the issue of low visibility and improve the danger of accidents, therefore the visitors police personnel are on roads to forestall such incidents, the official stated.
Cranes had been used to clear roads on which motorists had deserted their autos as a result of water-logging, he added.
The Mumbai Police in a tweet stated, “#WaterLogging Netaji Palkar Chowk, S.V. Road Baherambaug Junction, Sakkar Panchayat Chowk, Neelam Junction, Govandi, Hindamata Junction, Iqbal Kamani Junction, Dharavi Restaurant, Dharavi, Sion Junction, King Circle.
