Mahendragarh, July 12

Taking note of a news report in The Tribune about the deplorable condition of the Dadri-Narnaul state highway, which was earlier NH 148 B, Deputy Commissioner RK Singh, along with other officials, inspected the "killer stretch" on Sunday.

The DC found potholes on the 42-km stretch of the highway from Kuksi to Mandola villages. "We will ensure the repair of the highway to curb accidents and to ensure a smooth journey. I have written to the Additional Chief Secretary (PWD, Bamp;R) in this regard," RK Singh told The Tribune.

The DC said the highway, which was declared NH 148 B some years ago, had now been de-notified as a state road. "The highway is in a pathetic condition as heavy vehicles ply. The road users face inconvenience in the absence of four-laning in Mahendragarh district," RK Singh added.

Fed up with the bad condition of the road, local residents have put up hoardings at several places on both sides of the highway calling it a "jaanleva road (fatal highway)".

"About 20 people have lost their lives in the past eight to 10 months. Hence, be careful on the road as it is full of potholes," state the hoardings.
