The Kolkata Municipal Corporation (KMC) has come up with a schedule for repairing damaged roads and they intend to complete the repairing works before Puja. In order to ensure a smooth experience for pandal hopping during Puja, the KMC has decided to complete the repair works of the damaged roads before Puja. The EM Bypass will also undergo repairing since it is damaged due to the ongoing Garia-Dum Dum Metro project. Mayor Firhad Hakim told the Press, "We will soon take up repair work at some of the major roads in the city, where the top layer of the road has been damaged. We want to complete the work before the Puja this year. We will use cold mix for the repair work since the National Green Tribunal (NGT) has asked us to refrain from using mastic". The Chief Minister had earlier instructed the KMC to complete the repairing works of the roads before Pujas. KMC has already pinpointed the places where serious repair works of roads is required and repairing works will soon start in those areas.
