An expert appointed by the court of the civil judge in Alibaug has said workmanship on the stretch of the Mumbai-Goa national highway passing through the district is “poor”.

PN Padalikar, who was appointed in 2020 due to a case filed by advocate Ajay Upadhye in 2016, had inspected the 148-km stretch from Palaspe to Poladpur on February 1-2 this year. Upadhye said he filed the case as the national highway was being redeveloped since the last 10 years amid long delays.
