Repaired in August, road near Agro Mall develops potholes

Panchkula, November 7

The road that connects grain and apple markets in Sector 20 with the Zirakpur-Kalka highway is in bad shape.

The portion of the road near Agro Mall depicts the non-serious attitude of the authorities towards upkeep of road infrastructure.

Ultimately, motorists passing through the stretch have to bear the brunt. According to information, the authorities had conducted patchwork on the potholed portion in August, but it again got damaged in incessant rain.

Brij Mohan, president of Arhtiya Association, said road repairs should have been conducted before the rains. He urged the authorities to find a long-term solution to the problem.

As commercial trucks and tractor-trailers (during harvesting season) ply on this road throughout the day, the stretch requires "special" attention.

However, the authorities have apparently turned a blind eye to the problem.

KK Jindal, president of Sector 20 RWA, said they had given a representation to the authorities on roads in Sector 20, including the stretch near Agro Mall, but it seemed they were not interested to address their grievances. — TNS
