Are we destined to bad roads forever?

March 6, 2022


A lot of time has passed since the announcement of giving a facelift to the roads in the city and repairing the atrocious potholes that are present in almost all the roads.

Then came the announcement of the granting of funds and then came the inevitable bickering and fighting for the funds.

The Mayor even talked about the funds going back to the government treasury if the project was not taken up.

What is the latest update on this matter? Initially we Mysureans were promised that by March we would be riding or driving on smooth roads.

Well, we are in the beginning of March but there is not even an indication of the work beginning. Are we destined to bad roads forever?

It is high time the respective authorities got their act together and if they can’t sort their differences and fulfil the basic responsibility, then I feel it is time they let somebody else carry the baton and finish the race that they did not even begin.

    The readers would have lost count of the grievances raised by the aggrieved public due to the bad condition of the roads in most parts of the City. The authorities do not even to bother to respond on this issue. One cannot understand as to why are these people so insensitive to these issues.

    When there is tons of bribes to be made from civil engineering contract works in expanding the Runway and other facilities in Mandakalli Airport, road repairs seems not worth the effort as there is not much of a good graft, not in the order of the above Airport work.
    In Mumbai, because of the heavy traffic and the the focus as an international city, road works are carried out ,although we could do better.
