A 200-metre patch of a circular road in DLF Cyber City near the Moulsari Avenue Metro station is riddled with potholes, causing problems for commuters moving towards the NH-8. The potholes emerged around six months ago, during the last spell of rain, but it is yet to be fixed.
This road has a high traffic footfall every day, as the traffic from Sikanderpur side and from Delhi, via NH-8, also cross the expressway through this stretch.
The potholes are deep and hinder the movement of autorickshaws and cars on the road. Traffic on the stretch is also slowed down during the peak hour and the stretch turns into a bottleneck.
Rajiv Lamba, a daily commuter who uses this road, said, “It has become an accident-prone area. My car was hit by an auto from the rear when I was trying to pull my car out of a deep pothole. It was also not the auto driver’s fault as vehicles line up bumper-to-bumper during the rush hour.”
“I try to avoid the Cyber City Road because of the deep potholes near Moulsari Metro station and unending traffic jam. However, it is surprising that such a busy road in a posh area is in a pathetic condition,” RS Rathee, the president of Gurgaon Citizens’ Council, said. He said that he had also raised the issue earlier with DLF, to fix it at earliest.
Huda administrator Yashpal Yadav said he has raised the issue with DLF. “I have spoken with the DLF management with regards to bad roads and they assured the action soon,” Yadav said.
The corporate head of DLF Limited said, “The patch will be repaired soon. We are on the job and hope to finish it in next couple of weeks.”
