Default Avoidable monsoon trouble spots (NCR)

Folks,

Now that the first rains have hit Delhi, can the potholes be far behind. Just after a few showers Delhi roads have started to crumble.

There are some perpetual trouble spots ( in NCR) that are best avoided in this season. I would like al of you to contribute so that we all can benefit:

1) Road opposite Kalindi Kunj from Noida to Sarita Vihar. Huge cracks have appeared all over the road and the surface has stated to disintegrate after the initial showers. It is best to avoid this road especially during morning and evening peak hours.

Some other spots to avoid are:

Mahipalpur - especially if you are coming from Vasant Kunj
Golf Course Road in Gurgaon - gets really nasty(flooded) near Sunciti
MG road
Model Town(especially areas behind the IInd stop market)
Some approach roads to DND flyover

The entire stretch from Defence Colony flyover to Moolchand flyover usually is choc-a-bloc during monsoons, especially with the BRT now making its contribution.

Also, a lot of water tends to accumulate at the foot of the Oberoi flyover (going towards Pragati Maidan). A few splashes of rain and the place starts looking like freaking Mumbai!

One of the Colonies to be avoided is the Essel Towers @ Gurgaon ( Near IFFCO Chowk ) , the whole complex becomes like a swimming pool , water reached upto my Esteem's bumpers ( just below headlight ).

The problem with Essel Complex is that it doesnt have a proper drainage for the rain water , as it lies in low area surronded by high areas outside the complex . so i avoid meeting my friend in Essel Towers
