MC Road is an intermediate point that connects the north and south side of the state. The workers fixed the pothole by filling the concrete mixture.

A large pothole was formed in the middle of the road following the heavy rains. The pothole was formed near the Kacherithazham bridge. Locals said that heavy rain recorded in the area for the last few days might have led to the damage. The pothole that was supposedly formed between the night of Tuesday and Wednesday morning was first spotted by merchants in the locality. The pothole reportedly had a diameter of 10 feet. The tragedy was averted as the pothole was formed when there were no pedestrians and vehicles.

Traffic restriction was imposed on this stretch due to the pothole. A massive traffic snarl was formed here and the state government ordered the prompt intervention of authorities concerned. The workers under the supervision of experts were also deployed here. They examined the area and cleared the mass of mud.
