R&B worsens Hyderpora square mess!
Erects roadside shuttering, fails to provide diversion on Airport Road
GK CITY REPORTER
Srinagar, July 27: At a time when chronic delay in the construction of the Hyderpora flyover has put public to inconvenience for years, the Roads and Building (R&B) department has furthered the mess by erecting shuttering on the Airport Road while failing to provide an alternative link.
As life resumed to normal for a day Tuesday, Hyderpora square witnessed worst of the traffic jams due to narrowing of the busy square.
Almost half of the road width has been consumed by the shuttering, which as per the experts, is ill planned.
The experts said the shuttering for the central spans shouldn’t have been laid prior to providing of an alternative for the vehicular flow.
“It’s just another hit and trial with the flyover construction where the engineers have forgot the basics of constructions at busy sites,” said a retired engineer.
Meanwhile, the commuters pouring in from south City areas via the Hyderpora square accused the authorities of furthering their woes as they had to spent hours in the gridlocks.
A police official found it inconvenient to man traffic at the busy square and agreed with the public opinion.
“Unless an alternative is available, the authorities shouldn’t have eaten away the road for shuttering,” he argued as some annoyed commuters disputed his presence at the site.
An official associated with the flyover project agreed that shuttering had been done “untimely”.
“It’s a mistake,” he said.
