Sopore, Oct 28 : The busiest road stretch from Sopore – Shahgund approximately 12 Kms has faced the neglect of the concerned authorities, causing immense suffering to the commuters especially patients.

Talking to the news agency—Kashmir News Observer (KNO), residents said that the road is dotted with huge potholes and has not been repaired for the last several years and the authorities concerned are least bothered about the sufferings of people.

The road presents a pathetic look craving for the attention of the government. Though the work process from Amberpura to Haritar was started days ago but that too lasted for a day only, they said.

“We are facing immense problems due to its incompleteness. Administration has ignored the importance of this road. The slow pace of the work and dilapidated condition of the roads itself speaks of the incompetence of the authorities, said a local, Suhail Ahmed.

He said that the stretch has not been repaired for the last several years and the authorities concerned are least bothered about the sufferings of people. “The dilapidated condition of this road also causes fatal road accidents”, Suhail added.

Iqbal Ahmed, a Sarpanch told KNO, that the road acts as an important link which connects several areas with Sopore and thousands of commuters, transporters pass through this road daily. “The road is in a bad condition. Big pot holes filled with water dots, making the movement of people very difficult”, Iqbal added.

The residents urged the Lieutenant Governor led administration to look into the matter, so that it could give a sigh of relief to them.

Meanwhile, the deputy commissioner Baramulla, Syed Sehrish Asgar told KNO, that the work process has already started and they are expecting it complete by December.

“If weather conditions remain favourable, the work would be completed by December only, and if not then completion is expected in the month of April next year”, she said—(KNO)
