Maharashtra: 25 shops in Thane develop cracks after adjoining road caves in

Thane: Around 25 shops in Waghoba Nagar in Thane district’s Kalwa area developed cracks on Thursday due to the breakdown of a nearby road, though there were no reports of any casualties, civic officials told news agency PTI.

“The cracks developed due to excavation work near the tracks by the railways to build a security wall,” Thane Municipal Corporation’s regional disaster management cell head Avinash Sawant told PTI.

“During this excavation work, a portion of an adjoining road collapsed, causing cracks in the walls of 25 shops. Civic and fire brigade officials are on the spot to assess the situation.”
