Citadel - - PUNEITES SPEAK -

Pune has 2200 km of roads, out of which, 125 km is dug up cur­rently to fa­cil­i­tate var­i­ous projects like piped gas sup­ply, in­ter­net and tele­phone con­nec­tions to name some. Also, roads were dug up for wa­ter, sewage and storm wa­ter lines and elec­tri­cal works. I feel that even though there is noth­ing wrong in dig­ging up roads for fa­cil­i­tat­ing civic work, trou­ble knocks when there is a lack of co­or­di­na­tion be­tween the au­thor­i­ties of Pune Mu­nic­i­pal Cor­po­ra­tion and con­trac­tors who are re­spon­si­ble for job com­ple­tion. We can very well imag­ine all the nu­mer­ous prob­lems the city, with a pop­u­la­tion of more than 94 lakhs and ranks high­est in the num­ber of ve­hi­cles, has to face with the on­go­ing dig­ging work. I think that no de­lay should be done in com­plet­ing the road projects, oth­er­wise its safety and clean­li­ness get com­pro­mised. Ac­cord­ing to the re­ports, mon­soons are ar­riv­ing early this year and can worsen the con­di­tion of the roads. More­over, Puneites have a lot of ex­pec­ta­tions from the newly formed BJP gov­ern­ment in PMC. I hope they look into th­ese mat­ters se­ri­ously and nd so­lu­tions, as the dug up roads and pot­holes are caus­ing in­con­ve­nience for the peo­ple.
