Survey to be conducted to monitor improvement in roads: Fadnavis
Fadnavis added that the intensity of rains in Mumbai is very high, which leads to potholes on roads. "Last year, cold mix was used to fix potholes," the CM said adding that the roads were in good condition. "This year as well, a survey would be carried out to find if this has helped in proper maintenance of roads during the rains," Fadnavis said.
