Karjat-Murbad Road Expands to Become a National highway
Such a large scale 'development' has led to cutting down hundreds of old trees. Who is accountable for replanting of trees? This is extremely disappointing, because eventually, it will lead to more commercialization - more shops, restaurants, hotels etc. Did you know that Karjat is a Green residential zone (G1, G2 zone)? A green zone where the trees are cut to boost development projects that are not sustainable!
What kind of development is this when every monsoon, the roadworks employees fill up potholes with stones, a shoddy job that will last for a week, and then back again to the same bumpy road. Phone lines running along the side of the road has broken at several spots to an extent that BSNL had 4 exchanges disconnected, BSNL is not laying new cables anymore and this means lines that were disconnected in the road work are no longer going to be connected again.
