Where is our Taxes going on, Kerala roads are full of potholes

0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!


The potholed roads in the city seem to be causing major dents in the monthly budget of the average Kochiite. Regular bike and car users are forced to overhaul the vehicles frequently thanks to the dirt roads in the city dented with potholes.

Every year more than 2000 people are loosing their life in Road Accident. Potholes and Negligence in safety measures are highly responsible for maximum accident.

Most of the Roads in Kerala are in bad condition and has sequence of potholes. But the department like PWD and GCDA have completely failed to give safe and secure road to the people. These authorities start the maintenance just before monsoon, which is nothing but the way to fool the people. Kerala is known for good rain, but now Kerala is known for the potholes and road accidents in monsoon. Maximum roads in Kerala are in the worst condition after initial rain only. Potholes on the Road is showing the actual efficiency of Departments and Corporation.

The potholed roads in the city seem to be causing major dents in the monthly budget of the average kochiite. Regular bike and car users say they are forced to overhaul the vehicles frequently thanks to the dirt roads in the city pockmarked with potholes.

Motorists head straight for the garage for replacement of important parts. In Kerala we have to shell out extra money every month to keep the vehicle in good condition. This all after paying after taxes to the government we have nothing nor the safety for the life or the Vehicle. I use to travel from Tripunithura to MG Road daily to reach office and the potholes in the roads are that big that no one will survive after getting into these death traps and because of that traffic switches on to the crawl mode in the mornings thanks to the damaged roads at several parts.

There is sequence of potholes that too very big at from Tripunithura to Vytilla stretch which has become really dangerous especially for bikers. Many Travelers have met accident and lost their life due to potholes. But no concrete action has been taken this year to maintain the road and its lying in worst condition. I don't know what type of maintenance PWD or GCDA is doing on this road. Although government is collection huge amount of money in the name of taxes. There is no single person which is not effected from the potholes most of them are two wheeler who are suffering more from the bad road condition

Potholes maintenance have become the regular business of contractors and I think your officers are enjoying the potholes maintenance too. But because of this greed people are loosing their life and suffering everyday. Just before monsoon authorities start their work which is not of any use. Its the game of corruption where contractor and authorities both loot so much money in fake maintenance. Chottanikkara eruveli Road is just repaired recently and again the same potholes are visible in the road with deep and dangerous way.

We are not paying taxes to enjoy our ministers and officers, we are paying for safety, roads and development of city and country. Collecting taxes and looting the public is to be stopped So, I will request to take appropriate action before we the public start taking action against wrong administration.
