Pothole fix: MMRDA gets innovative with old tyres 20.8.2017 DNA: Money

In an eco-friendly move, old tyres donated by individuals were used to fill up potholes. Potholes were filled up using old tyres which are first crushed and segregated. The fine quality rubber crumb is collected and mixed with bitumen which is then used for surfacing of the potholed stretch. If found satisfactory, the MMRDA plans to ask its contractors to use the same mixture in the future. Potholes were filled on three flyovers including Dahisar, Borivli, and Kherwadi flyover at Bandra which were done by a private firm as a part of its corporate social responsibility (CSR) for free. A senior MMRDA, official, said, "We had got a request from a firm named CEAT tyres and had taken our consent to use the same mixture to fill up potholes on Western Urban Road.

Ousted Delhi minister and former Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) member, Kapil Mishra, on Wednesday put up banners, calling Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal corrupt, on different flyovers across the national Capital.
