Damaged roads: the long-standing problem
As a result of rapid urbanization, close to 35% of Indians now live in urban areas and commute on city roads more than ever before. When coupled with the fact that India has the 4th largest auto market in the world, our roads are only going to get more congested with vehicles in years to come. This places tremendous pressure on our roads, resulting in cracks and dangerous potholes. In fact, in the last four years, over 11,000 people have died due to pothole-related accidents. Whilst these problems have persisted, there hasn’t been a long-term solution that brings relief to roads and commuters alike.
