The Haryana Urban Development Authority (HUDA) has set a target of September 30 for repairing all major and interior roads in Gurgaon.
The HUDA administrator is monitoring the project personally and has asked engineers to email photographs of all roads where potholes have been filled every evening.
After the recent heavy downpour left most roads non-motorable, a budget of R35 lakh has been allocated for road repairs, HUDA officials said. Recarpetting of some major roads, however, will start in the first week of October and is likely to cost the department R4.5 crore.
HUDA administrator Nitin K. Yadav said patch work which involves filling of potholes is already underway along the DLF Golf Course Road, AarDee City Road, Sector-52/52A, 43/53 and others. The severely damaged Sohna Road, except for Subhash Chowk near the Uniworld Garden, has not been touched yet as it is still being widened by the contractor.
“I have made it mandatory for all engineers to e-mail me photographs of each and every patch work and filling of potholes on a daily basis,” Yadav said.
“After September 30, anyone who spots potholes on the roads can contact and inform me with photographs, if required, on the e-mail address firstname.lastname@example.org,” he added.
