GHAZIABAD: A road connecting four highrises in Raj Nagar Extension has been riddled with nearly five-foot-wide potholes for the past two years. These have not only injured residents but also wrecked several cars and bikes. However, despite complaints, the Ghaziabad Development Authority (GDA) is yet to fix the stretch, residents claimed.Since the road has all the important markets, its impossible to avoid it, but it is dangerous to use, said Deepanshu Mittal, a resident of Raj Nagar Extension. This 1.5-kilometer-long road starts from Ramleela Ground and passes via Blue Moon, Fortune Society, Ashiana Society, Gulmohar Jyoti Super Village, before ending at GP Mall. The stretch is particularly unsafe for two-wheelers and is in urgent need of repairs. The traffic is also high here, as many residential societies, corporate offices are located here. There are about 10–12 potholes, said another resident, Bijendra Bidrohi. Residents alleged that the government has been focusing on building new roads, but no heed is being paid to maintaining the existing roads. There have been several accidents on this stretch. But no concrete solution has been implemented by the GDA till now, said another resident, Vani Arora. Meanwhile, despite several attempts, GDA officials could not be reached for a comment on the issue.We also published the following articles recentlyLast of Residency Roads residents forced to put up with sewage stenchResidents of the last standing residential building on Residency Road in Bengaluru are facing numerous challenges.
