Bota Kadal residents decry dilapidated road

Residents of Bota Kadal (A) area here have expressed resentment over delay in repairs of dilapidated road in the locality.

Locals said that a drain was constructed in the area near masjid Salman Farsi in November last year. “Ironically, despite passing of nearly six months, the road has not been repaired yet. Potholes and uneven surface pose risk of injuries to pedestrians and hamper our movement. Due to dilapidated road, several vehicles have been damaged,” they said.

The locals said that they had approached LAWDA authorities to undertake repairs of the road. “However, the LAWDA officials said that it is the job of Roads and Buildings department. Ironically, the R&B authorities passed the buck on the LAWDA authorities. We make a fervent appeal to Deputy Commissioner Srinagar to look into the matter and direct the concerned authorities to repair the road at the earliest,” they said.
