Mumbai: Traffic in Maximum City was once again reduced to a crawl as heavy showers on Saturday results in major roads getting submerged under water.

Water-logging was reported from several parts of the city and while Saturday meant many offices were shut, many motorists found themselves wading through deep waters. Pedestrians were especially vulnerable as cars and bikes moved towards the side of the roads to avoid possibly submerged obstacles. Areas like Andheri, Dadar, Parel, Cuff Parade and Borivali are especially affected.

Mumbai Police on Friday had took to Twitter to issue an advisory for if and when cars get stuck in flooded streets.

There have also been reports on local trains running late. Delays span from 10 to 30 minutes, adding to woes of commuters.

Flooded streets is an annual occurrence in Mumbai each time monsoon hits the city. Despite civic authorities claiming to have de-silted drains, the lack of it becomes amply evident each year.

Mumbaikars have voiced their protest against water-logged roads which often have large potholes which pose a risk to life but each year, the concerns fall on deaf ears.
