  • Two months on, Mohd Ali Road work unfinished
    Summary: "This road generally witnesses traffic, but the repair work has added to our woes as it makes driving difficult.

To add to the chaos, traffic from Carnac road and Lokmanaya Tilak road meets at Mohammed Ali Road. Since it has a market, there are hundreds of visitors on a daily basis and high traffic flow. One such is South Mumbai's Mohammed Ali Road, also known as Old Palton road.

However, it looks like the BMC may need to carry out road repairs way beyond the set deadline so as to make quite a few roads in the city motorable. One such is South Mumbai's Mohammed Ali Road, also known as Old Palton road. The stretch, which houses Manish market, is being repaired by the BMC for the past two months.

It remains a big worry for commuters as they fear it will lead to longer traffic snarls during the monsoon. To add to the chaos, traffic from Carnac road and Lokmanaya Tilak road meets at Mohammed Ali Road. Repair machinery occupies most of the road which also makes it difficult for pedestrians.
