Srinagar, July 12: Dilapidated road stretch in the Mufti-bagh area of Harwan is taking heavy toll on commuters and locals there.
The residents said that the road stretch starting from New Theed Sumo stand to Darbagh is in shambles. They said that the damaged road causes inconvenience to locals and commuters there.
"Despite passing of several years, the road has not been repaired. We want authorities to repair the road without any delay," said Shahid Ahmad a local. The locals said that the potholes in the road turn into cesspool during rains and they are facing inconvenience to move out.
"Our houses are full of dust due to this dilapidated road. Waterlogging during rains causes other problems there. The road is not suitable to commute as the condition has turned worse after years of negligence," said another local. The commuters said that their vehicles are damaged while traveling the road. “Our vehicles need service after every month due to bad condition of the road. It is inconvenient to drive on bumpy road which is full of potholes,” said Irfan Ahmed, a commuter.
