    Arrow Barack Obama visit: BMC undertakes road repair work in Mumbai !!

    Ahead of US President Barack Obama's visit, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has undertaken road repair work from the city airport to suburban Bandra and in some parts of south Mumbai.

    Ha, At Last ! But dont know how much of it would go to the pockets of the officials and they will come up with some low quality roads which will get worse during the next monsoon. Nevertheless, hope the situation becomes better and we bikers can have much safer rides in the city
