Ludhiana: The road caved in at the Pakhowal road near Punjab Mata Nagar in front of Durian Furniture in the morning hours around 8:15 am as informed by Secretary Council of RTI activist, Arvind Sharma on Tuesday.
It is not for the first time that road caved in at this location, in fact, three-four times the same also happened at the same place. Even then Municipal Corporation Ludhiana are least bothered to set the problem right in the specific area to avoid any untoward incident in future.
Arvind Sharma further informed that from caved-in location he called up concerned Municipal Corporation XEN, HS Bhullar, but he never took this problem seriously in the above mentioned area on the Pakhowal road. As three-four times earlier, he filed the complaint against cave in at the specific site and this official assured to set the road right but till date nothing has been done to set the road right it seems that they are waiting some major tragedy to happen on this road. It is the bottleneck of traffic mainly in the peak hours of day in morning and evening. “The authorities don’t take the road cave in seriously if this problem would not set right soon then it could affect the whole road in the coming days “, said Arvind Sharma.
The road took poor shape after one of the cellular company digged up the road for putting wires but after that they did not used good material to carpet the road. The sewerage pipe also leaks from inside thats’ why the road gots caved-in again and again risking the life of the city residents at the Pakhowal road. HS Bhullar said that he would look into the matter and needful would be done at the earliest possible.
