Srinagar: Several roads in Srinagar have developed severe potholes due to the callous attitude of the administration in initiating immediate repairs.
The roads, especially in Bemina, Qamarwari, Noorbagh, Eidgah, Padshabagh presenting a pathetic look, are also craving for the official attention.
“This is pathetic to see that the Government is not bothered in repairing the roads; it really gives us a tough time in commuting through the area,” shabir Ahmad, a commuter here in Bemina area, said.
The bad condition of roads, not only gives the commuters a tough time, but it also consumes a lot of their time in reaching from one place to another.
Same is the condition of the road in Qamarwari to Noorbagh, Eidgah.
The authorities have not bothered to repair the damaged road. Same can be seen in the localities like Parimpora where the road is filled with huge potholes.
There is a whole patch of road from Qamarwari Chowk towards Eidgah where the road has developed severe potholes. On the other side of the same road, in front of the CRPF Camp at Sekidafar, the road presents a pathetic look.
The road from Padshahbgh to Soietang is also in a bad condition. Big pot holes filled with water can be seen in the middle of the road, making commuting a daring job. “The administration seems to have forgotten this road, no work has been taken up for the last so many months,” said Imran Ahmad, a local resident.
When contacted Chief Engineer Roads and buildings Kashmir he said that he will look into the matter. “We have issued the tender for Bemina road, the work will start soon”.
He further said that wherever it is required the repair works will also be initiated. (KINS)
