300 city buses broke down on poor roads

CHENNAI: Rain-battered city roads have proved costly to the Metropolitan Transport Corporation, whose buses are increasingly suffering from breakdowns and punctured tyres.

As many as 327 buses in the city and the suburbs broke down in the last month, mainly due to poor road conditions, sources said. Also, tyres of 30 to 40 MTC buses get punctured every day as they cannot withstand the damaged roads.

Many crew members said they were unable to run the buses on schedule, and it was taking an average of two hours more to complete the trips due to bad roads
