GURGAON: The broken internal roads in Sector 23A are a cause of concern for the residents, who say these stretches were dug up for laying water pipelines two years back, but haven’t been repaired since then.
Even after the work was completed, the residents said, MCG did not recarpet the roads. Most of these are lying broken, with monsoon making the situation even worse.
As a result, vehicles often get stuck, leading to accidents and collisions in some cases. Locals said the civic body had floated a tender in May for recarpeting the roads at an estimated cost of Rs 1.3 crore, but the work order is yet to be assigned to a contractor. “Most of these streets are broken and muddy. Some have huge potholes, making it difficult for the commuters. It has been more than 100 days since the opening of bids for the tender but the work order hasn’t been issued yet. We have been getting false assurances and nothing is materializing on the ground,” Bhawani Shankar Tripathy, RWA vice president of the sector, said.
Vikram Singh, RWA general secretary, said the roads have become more risky during rains. “There is an urgent need to repair these roads as many senior citizens have lost balance while walking on uneven patches. Even the soil is clogging the drains, aggravating the water-logging problem in the area,” he added.
When contacted, a senior MCG official said the work for road repairs in ward 2 has already been assigned and the municipal corporation will fill up the potholes in the sector on an immediate basis. “The tender for relaying the roads is in the final stages. The tendering process got delayed due to lack of participation from the agencies but now we are trying to complete it soon,” the official added.
