SUBODH BHASIN Jammu, Apr 7 Conditions of roads in old Jammu city has deteriorated to such a state that it has become difficult to ply vehicles and most of lanes are in deplorable condition. The lanes and by lanes in the old city have not been repaired after the (ERA completed the laying of sewage pipes. Residents of various wards in the old city, where sewage pipes were laid, said the entire road stretches had become bumpy and there were uneven patches in the middle of the roads. The roads in the Rehari-Ambphalla area were dug up around five months ago but have not been repaired completely, making them prone to accidents. Talking to Young Bites correspondent Rajeev Sharma a city resident said that government at the helm of affairs should take note of the bad condition of roads and direct the concerned to repair, the conditions of the roads, so that they become worthy of plying vehicles. He further added that Digging was done here but now it seems the concerned executing agencies have forgotten to complete the work and have left the lanes in pathetic conditions which have caused apprehensions of serious accidents mainly to school going children and elderly people. Rampant digging of roads and slow pace of work under the sewerage and drainage project executed by the Economic Reconstruction Agency has caused hardships to people. Residents are fuming as departments involved in project have shown a casual attitude by not renovating the roads. Another Resident Raghav Mahajan said, “The election fever is at its peak and contestants have started coming to woo voters, but even they are not concerned,” he said. Satya Gupta, 65, a resident of Rehari, said ferrying his granddaughter to school had become a difficult task. “It becomes difficult to drive the scooter in the bumpy lane. Even walking on foot is risky.”
