Muddy, slippery roads pose danger at Rajarajeshwari nagar

After laying drainage pipes, the civic agency forgets to fix the road, making it a dangerous stretch.

I am a resident of BEML Layout, Rajarajeshwari nagar, 7th cross, 9th main, 3rd stage . BWSSB laid the new drainage pipes two months ago. But no on has bothered to bring the road back to normalcy. The drain pipes are just closed with loose soil and even extra soil present on the road is not removed.

Vehicles plying on the road get stuck in the loose mud often. Elderly and children find it difficult to walk and have often had falls.

Many roadblocks to getting a PUC certificate for your vehicle

Under new rule, vehicles owners have to pay heavy fines if they fail to get a pollution test done. But, the system to get a PUC certificate remains flawed.

The rule ultimately has several drawbacks, given the difficulty in acquiring PUC certificates in the first place.
