Kaithal, October 20

Roads of Kaithal district are in pathetic condition, posing threat to commuters. The entry to the city from Karnal side shows a grim picture of the road.

“A stretch near Sir Chhotu Ram Chowk on the Kaithal-Karnal road was constructed while widening the Kaithal and Karnal state highway,a few days ago, but it was again dug up by the civic bodies for laying sewer pipelines, which has become a nuisance for commuters and shopkeepers,” said Sanjeev Kumar, a shopkeeper.

Another shopkeeper Shyam Lal said it showed poor communication between two departments. If the sewer lines were to be laid, then why was the road constructed first?. They should have laid the sewer lines first before constructing the road. He said it was the result of ill-planning by officials of both departments.

Apart from this stretch, the 3-km stretch on the Kaithal-Patiala road between Siwan and Polar village, a stretch between Siwan and Sotha village are in bad shape and full of potholes, due to which the commuters are inconvenienced. The work of the ROB near Teek village on the Kaithal-Kurukshetra road, which is being constructed at the cost of Rs 17 crore is still underway, due to which the commuters have to take alternative routes to reach their destination. Apart from this, a stretch between Kaithal city to Delhi Public School on the Kaithal-Ambala road needs widening. The residents said they had raised this issue with the authorities several times, but to no avail. Due to the congested road, the commuters are troubled, said Parveen Kumar, a resident.

Sonu, another resident, said the work on the widening of the Karnal-Kaithal road was very slow. The government should pull up the executing agency for the speedy construction of the road.
