Hyderabad: Craters, potholes on new roads haunt commuters | Published: 9th February 2019 | Posted Date: Saturday 9th February 2019 02:25 AM

Hyderabad: The Hyderabad Road Development Corporation Limited has left city roads to the dogs. The corporation, which built 100 km out of total 320 km in eight months, left the roads with craters and potholes at several places. In the absence of a grievance redressal system, citizens have been bearing the brunt. Surprisingly, nodal agencies do not even have an annual tender mechanism to take up road repair.

The road is damaged at Banjara Hills Road No. 2; at Aramgarh road, specifically from the Owaisi Junction to Chandrayangutta Durganagar; Sarojini Devi Hospital to Madhur Sweets in Mehdipatnam; Malakpet; Nalgonda crossroads and Saidabad.

Even though Transco completed work on Malakpet highway, and HMRL on the road under-bridge, six months ago, the agency was yet to take up road restoration.

Mr D.V.S. Raju, a techie who commutes to office from Lakdikapul to Madhapur, said HRDCL has laid a fresh road from SD Hospital to Madhur sweet shops but forgot to connect it with the old road. He said a 4-inch height variation between old and new road is giving everybody a back-breaking experience. “My vehicle was severely damaged,” Mr Raju said. “Commuters are assured a bumpy ride on the stretch. When I contacted GHMC officials, I was told the road belongs to HRDCL and was shocked to know that they do not have a grievance redressal system.”

Mr Mohammad Iliyas said Transco completed cable-laying work about six months back and HRDCL authorities were yet to restore the road. This apart, he said the service road connecting the Nalgonda crossroads flyover was severely damaged and the road near Malakpet metro station was damaged severely because of HMRL works, for which restoration work was yet to be taken up.

When queried about the same subject, a senior HRDCL official said on condition of anonymity that road repair work has not taken up because of severe funds crunch and skeletal staff.

The official also said that the department does not have annual tender mechanism to take up road repair.

The official refused to comment on quality of work.
