Com­muters de­mand re­pair of Rawal Road

Pakistan Observer - - TWIN CITIES -

RAWALPINDI —Rawal road is a great bless­ing for the res­i­dents of the twin cities of Rawalpindi and Islamabad but it is break­ing up fast at var­i­ous points due to non re­pair by any Author­ity.

The com­muters who reg­u­larly use it for trav­el­ling to var­i­ous ar­eas through the road have de­manded im­me­di­ate at­ten­tion of the con­cerned to save the thor­ough­fare from fur­ther breakup.

The road was built by Rawalpindi De­vel­op­ment Author­ity (RDA) in 2001 and its up­keep is still in their do­main.

Shafique Ah­mad, a com­muter talk­ing to APP said while the Cheif Min­is­ter has sanc­tioned a big amount for con­struc­tion of var­i­ous roads in the city, one is per­plexed why a vi­tal al­ter­nate road of the city is be­ing al­lowed to break up due to non re­pair.

Re­peated at­tempts to con­tact RDA high­ups was a fu­tile ex­er­cise as no one was avail­able to com­ment on the is­sue. Nadir Shah a res­i­dent of Scheme One com­plained it is re­gret­table that a vi­able al­ter­nate route of the city is go­ing down the drain due to lethar­gic at­ti­tude of the con­cerned of­fi­cials.

Shu­maila an­other res­i­dent of a nearby colony said one won­ders why a vi­able road is break­ing up on which mil­lions were spent for con­struc­tion and thou­sands daily travel through this vi­tal link.—APP
