Majority of the roads in Hyderabad are in a pathetic state and there has been limited or no action taken by GHMC to repair these roads - Multiple complaints on the GHMC Website has yielded zero results.
These roads cause accidents, traffic jams and huge inconvenience to the public.
Over Rs 200 crore (Source: Deccan Chronicle - 22nd Aug 2013) is spent in all by various agencies in the city for construction, recarpeting and repair of roads in the city every year. But the still don't have good roads in our city.
Several stretches of roads stay unrepaired, while with others, the repair work is so shoddy it has made the road worse than before. There have been no inputs on the actions taken against Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation engineers for building bad roads and the contractors are let off after a meager penalty is extracted under the defect liability clause.
Moreover, the lack of coordination between the GHMC, Police, Water Board, Central Discom and APTransco etc, leads to issues where once a road is re-laid it could very well be dug up a short while later by some other agency to lay pipelines and cables.
Its time we stand up against this inaction and demand good roads in our city.
