Two days of record rain sieved the roads of the capital. About one and a half thousand kilometers of roads were pitted from one to two feet deep. 27 roads of PWD were also riddled. Out of these, the PWD has held the Municipal Corporation responsible for the deteriorating condition of 18 roads. By the way, a letter has also been written to the corporation for renewal. The corporation had dug these roads to lay water and sewage lines. The already dilapidated roads have disappeared in potholes in the rain.
There is no road left by the rain which is not uprooted. Be it Hoshangabad Road or Kolar, Hamidia Road, Bavdiakalan. Now in these pits, the Municipal Corporation has laid ballast and soil. After this, clouds of dust are now flying on the roads.
Kolar, Hamidia Road too dilapidated
Kolar Road belongs to PWD. The 11 km road from Gol Jod to Bairagarh Chichli has become dilapidated at many places. There have been big potholes in Lalitanagar, Mandakini intersection, Nayapura, Kolar police station, D-mart area etc. Although the Municipal Corporation has put soil and ballast on them, but now the problem of dust has also arisen along with the potholes. Three and a half kilometer road of Hamidia Road has also been uprooted. Apart from this, the condition of other roads is also the same.
Get the corporation renewed, letter written
The PWD has written a letter to the Municipal Corporation regarding Kolar Road and Hamidia Road. The corporation itself has been held responsible for the deteriorating condition of the roads. Excavation was done for two years to lay sewage and water lines at both the places. Due to this the roads were already dilapidated, but their picture got worse in the rain.
Kolar road has been completely uprooted due to rain. For its improvement, the PWD has written a letter to the Municipal Corporation.
The condition of these roads is also bad
According to the officials, more than 500 km long roads have been damaged due to the rain last week. These include areas like Kolar, Hoshangabad Road, Bavdia Kalan, Hamidia Road, Karond, Ayodhya Bypass, Raisen Road, Indrapuri, Anand Nagar, BHEL, Subhashnagar, Chola, Ashoka Garden etc. About one thousand kilometers of roads are already dilapidated. For this reason, the Municipal Corporation and PWD are preparing steam for their improvement.
Ballast and soil have been laid in the potholes of the road in Bavdiakalan, which has become a cause of trouble for the passers-by by becoming dust.
CPA closed due to roads
The capital has 3879 km of municipal roads, 531 km of PWD, 150 km of BDA and 132 km of CPA (Capital Project Administration). The CPA has closed on March 31 this year and its roads have been handed over to the PWD. Bad roads are also the reason for closure of CPA. While reviewing the condition of the roads last year, CM Shivraj Singh Chouhan had given instructions to close it. After a long process of about six months, the CPA was closed forever.
The condition of Hoshangabad road is also bad. The road has been uprooted in many places.
wrote a letter to the corporation
27 roads of PWD have become dilapidated due to heavy rains. Of these, 18 roads were damaged due to the municipal corporation. The corporation excavated for laying sewage and water lines. It has been written in the letter that the improvement work of the roads should be done. After this PWD will get the asphaltization done.
