Thane: Thane Municipal Corporation has been entrusted by MMRDA to repair the road from Anandnagar to Majiwada Naka in Thane. Its length is 4.80 km. However, the financial condition of the municipality is not good. Also, when the municipal administration conducts a survey of this road by the municipal corporation, it can be seen that a total of 60 crore rupees will be spent on repairing the road. With this, the Municipal Corporation has now raised its hand and written a letter to MMRDA that this amount should be given to MMRDA first, only then the Municipal Corporation will take up the responsibility of repairing the road.
Let it be known that the Mumbai Municipal Commissioner told the Mumbai High Court that the road is not under our jurisdiction. Because of this potholes have been created on the road. The condition of the roads would have been better if the roads were within the limits of the Mumbai Municipal Corporation. It was after this that the MMRDA wrote a letter to the Mumbai Municipal Corporation and Thane Municipal Corporation requesting them to undertake the repair and maintenance of the road from Anand Nagar to Majiwada Naka. On the request of MMRDA, Thane Municipal Corporation conducted a survey of 4.80 km road from Old Zakat Naka (Anand Nagar) Mulund to Golden Diges Junction, Majiwada. According to the municipal corporation survey, the total cost of road repair and maintenance will be Rs 60 crore. After this survey, the Thane Municipal Corporation first demanded funds of Rs 60 crore from the MMRDA. It has been clearly stated in the letter from the municipality that the Thane Municipal Corporation will take over the road once the money is received.
Two crore rupees are spent on road maintenance every year
According to the municipal corporation, if the MMRDA funds the Thane Municipal Corporation at present Rs 60 crore, both the nakas will be repaired and the municipality will spend Rs 1.5 to 2 crore on road maintenance every year. Now it remains to be seen how long the MMRDA allocates this fund to the Thane Municipal Administration.
