Bad stretch of Pampore highway irks commuters
GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, May 15: A 100 odd meter patch of the Srinagar-Jammu highway near Pampore Gas Turbine is in shambles for the past around eight months since it was dug up, the complainants said.
Till now the authorities have failed to get it repaired even though the bad road conditions worsen the traffic mess on this vital route to south Kashmir and outside Valley.
“It takes around half an hour to cross this bad stretch as the vehicles have to drive slowly. I don’t know why the government here has been sleeping over this issue,” complained Shahnawaza Khan, a tourist from New Delhi adding that the traffic jams spoiled her tour to Pahalgam in south Kashmir.
Meanwhile, the commuters have appealed the Divisional Commissioner Dr Asgar Hassan Samoon to look into the matter.
