The Karnataka High Court on Tuesday directed the BBMP to issue work orders to American Road Technology and Solutions Pvt Ltd within 36 hours to undertake further pothole-filling works in the city.

A division bench headed by Chief Justice Ritu Raj Awasthi asked the BBMP to submit a report on the issue by Thursday.

The counsel appearing for the company operating Python machines informed the court that the BBMP is yet to issue work orders to repair the new stretch of roads identified in the recent joint survey. The counsel submitted that the work could not be started since the work order has not been issued.

The advocate for the BBMP, on the other hand, sought time to finalise the work order stating that the company had some issues with the formalities.

The bench orally expressed its dissatisfaction over the delay in issuing work orders despite the survey identifying roads needing urgent repair. It said some stretches require immediate attention due to the pre-monsoon showers.
