“Mumbai-Goa highway is a constant mess and now heavy rains in July will make it unusable. @nitin_gadkari ji has a lot to answer for for making a major highway non-functional in 10 years of his work. What is the point of Samruddhi,” a social media user commented on the post.

“It's such a nightmare and the worst part is that it was a much better highway before they started renovating it,” wrote another user on X.

“Terrible. Monsoon still hasn't started properly. I'm scared just thinking what will happen if there is heavy rain for a prolonged period. So many tweets about this for many months. But no response from @NHAI_Official or @nitin_gadkari. Sir please look into this,” read one comment on the post.

According to the HT report, the National Highway Authority of India (NHAI) has started concreting work on the highway, but commuters are battling potholes in the yet-to-be-concreted sections.
