Srinagar: Inordinate delay in repairs of dilapidated roads is causing inconvenience to commuters.
Due to ongoing Smart City project and drainage construction, many roads in the city have caved in and developed potholes. The inhabitants living in the several areas of the city including Habba Kadal, Rainawari, Khanyar, Nowpora, Khayam and Munwarabad, and other Downtown areas face difficulty to travel through these areas.
Commuters expressed their disappointment against authorities for leaving roads in dilapidated condition after laying of drainage pipes.
Despite passage of over two months since drainage pipes were laid from Khayam to Nowpora, the busy route has been left unattended.
The road at Nowpora is dotted with potholes resulting in traffic jams. “Many accidents have occurred due to dilapidated roads,” said Muzamil Ahmad, a commuter.
Road at Khanyar and Bohri Kadal are also dilapidated. Commuters said potholes on roads hampers smooth vehicular movement. “We make a fervent appeal to concerned authorities to look into the matter,” they added.
