By Dev Kotak: The commuters on Worli-bound road from Haji Ali were witness to a rather unusual visual message on Monday. The drivers and motorists driving on the road came across a ‘smoke weed everyday’ message flashing on the LED display board, one that was allegedly caused due to ‘technical glitch’.
Just a few meters away from the junction starting from Haji Ali dargah towards the city bakery/ Worli Naka junction, the LED display is operating during the evening hours by L&T (Larsen and Toubro), who are also engaged in the construction of MCRP (Mumbai Coastal Road Project) that will seamlessly connect South Mumbai to the North part of the city.

The display board was closed down after traffic officials were made aware of the glitch.
Pravin Padwal, Joint commissioner, traffic, said “L&T company has installed LED display board for diversion on north bound from Haji Ali to Lotus junction. When discussed with L&T engineer, Mr. Thackeray, in this regard, he said that due to some technical glitch last night, a wrong message was flashing on the display. He has contacted his IT team regarding this and the display board has been closed until it is fixed.”
