Hyderabad to be free of potholes in 90 days: Mayor

Hyderabad: The local civic body Thursday launched an initiative to make Hyderabad free of potholes, which are source of constant annoyance for motorists.

Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) will be deploying hi-tech pothole filling vehicles under the initiative `Road Doctor'.

Mayor Mohammed Majid Hussain said GHMC has adopted the latest technology to fill potholes and ensure a trouble-free ride for road users.

"In a span of 90 days there will not be a single pothole in the city," he said.

GHMC Commissioner Somesh Kumar said the new system can fill potholes even if roads are waterlogged.

"In earlier system, after filling of the potholes it used to get damage very early. However, with the latest system, the repairs will last for one year," he said.
