Mumbai, July 10: While several get stranded during rainfall in Mumbai, getting stuck in between roads; no matter navigation tool too doesn’t helps! Google India had decided to add new blue coloured roads on its Google Maps especially for the users of Mumbai city.

In its press release, Google India said that “Google Inc. has decided to add new blue coloured roads on its Google Maps especially for the users of Mumbai city, for finding correct directions and shortest possible path during rains in the city to reach their desired destination.”

It further stated, “Taking into consideration inconvenience caused to Mumbai users during navigation in the rainy season, we have come up with this new update and modification. These new maps are available for all types of OS in mobile phones as well as Google Maps users on PC”. Blue Road is certainly needed.

Google India Head Rajan Anandan while announcing the new change stated, “We have been getting a lot of complains from users in Mumbai that they get stuck in a drain or river after seeing green, orange and red marked roads on Google Maps for reaching a destination, that is when we decided to come up with blue colored roads, designed specifically to indicate water logged roads”, since flooding and water logging of roads are inextricable for the city of Mumbai, we have decided to come up with this new feature on our maps.  Mumbaikars can now easily distinguish between a waterway and roadway on its originally built roads to choose the right path to reach his desired destination”.
