Gu­ru­gram pub­lic agen­cies fail to re­pair pot­holes

Millennium Post - - Mp City -

GU­RU­GRAM: Heavy rains dur­ing mon­soon last year also had its ad­verse im­pact on Gu­ru­gram res­i­dents as large parts of the city roads hasve de­vel­oped pot­holes.

To im­prove the sit­u­a­tion, the pub­lic agen­cies in the city had first set a dead­line of Jan­uary 24 to re­pair all the pot­holes. Fail­ing to meet its ini­tial dead­line the time limit was ex­tended to Fe­bru­ary 10. For­get the sit­u­a­tion of in­ter­nal roads even prom­i­nent city roads like MG road, New rail­way road, Ma­haveer Chowk and Au­gust Kranti Marg busy routes used by thou­sands of com­muters daily are filled with pot­holes.

Fol­low­ing the poor state of road in­fra­struc­ture, var­i­ous res­i­dents have taken to so­cial me­dia and are de­mand­ing ac­count­abil­ity from the pub­lic of­fi­cials. Not only are their com­plaints of the poor con­di­tion of roads from the pri­vate colonies but there are also com­plaints of the poor up­keep of roads main­tained by the pub­lic agen­cies.

Most of the res­i­dent bod­ies, how­ever, claim that there is a lack of proac­tive ac­tion among the pub­lic agen­cies to­wards the im­prove­ment of roads in the city. In the past res­i­dents have pooled money them­selves to build and main­tain roads for bet­ter con­nec­tiv­ity.
