This refers to your well-timed Weekend Star Supplement (Road to Hell) last Saturday focussing on dangerous roads. This particular road in Vijayanagar 1st Stage, 6th Cross, 5th Main, could qualify for a spot on that list.
Though it is not a major highway nor has it claimed lives, the exposed rocks have eaten away the soles and tyres alike. The roads kick up dust, making the lives of the senior citizens, who make up the majority of the residents here, unbearable. So bad is the road that off-road enthusiasts have been making a beeline on Sundays, driving and riding rashly, putting the lives of children at risk.
We request our fellow neighbour, the District-in-Charge Minister (who lives less than 500 metres away) and our Corporator to kindly get this road repaired at the earliest.
