KHARGHAR: The City and In­dus­trial De­vel­op­ment Cor­po­ra­tion (Cidco) has be­gun road re­pair work in Sec­tor 34 and 35 of Kharghar to en­sure a has­sle-free mon­soon this year.

The Cidco has ap­pointed a con­trac­tor for the work that is ex­pected to cost Rs1.38 crore.

The Sec­tor 35 area strad­dling sev­eral high rises has for long been suf­fer­ing from bad roads and bro­ken foot­paths.

Spurred by the protest by res­i­dents last year, the plan­ning body had done patch work in June last year.

Later, the res­i­dents were as­sured that the re­main­ing work will be taken up af­ter Di­wali. Cidco, how­ever, did not start the re­pair which up­set res­i­dents.

“No road work has been done in some ar­eas of Sec­tor 34 and

35. The road from Thar­wani to MSEDCL of­fice is full of sludge in the mon­soon. Res­i­dents have to make their way through it in the rainy sea­son,” said Pranit Patil, a lo­cal res­i­dent.

VT Ravi, Cidco ex­ec­u­tive engi­neer, said, “We have ap­pointed

Ajwani Agency for the road re­pair. The project will cost Rs1.38 crore.”

“The roads will be as­phalted prior to the mon­soon. Once the mon­soon is over, we will take up the re­main­ing road, foot­path and man­hole works,” he added.
