With no solution in sight for potholed roads, residents of Sector 30 have resigned to their fate. Though the condition of sector roads was never pleasant, it has become worse over the past one year.
"It's been more than one year that I have experienced a smooth ride on the roads from House No 23 to 71," said Narendra Chhillar, General Secretary of the Youth Congress and former president of Resident Welfare Association (RWA) in Sector 30.
"During the monsoons, stagnant water adds to the woes of commuters. There has been no respite despite repeated complaints lodged at the Huda office," Chhillar added.
According to residents, more than a dozen minor and serious accidents have been reported here in the past few months. But the authorities have always turned a blind eye.
Owing to the dismal state of roads, the RWA had approached the concerned sub-divisional officer (SDO) and junior engineer (JE) to get the road carpeted. All efforts have proved futile till now.
On being asked, senior Haryana Urban Development Authority (Huda) officials, as usual, promised better roads.
"The estimates will be prepared and as soon as the funds are sanctioned, work will begin," said a senior official in the department.
Vishal Sharma, a resident of the area said, "The Haryana government has allocated adequate funds to fix the dilapidated roads across the city. Where the money is going is a million dollar question."
