Repairing roads on Alibagh route

My recent bike trip down the Alibagh route to Murud Janjira on a bike was a very painful experience. The road has not been properly repaired in most sections for ages. The hasty patchwork that has been done has collapsed long time back. The road is so bumpy and pothole ridden that it is dangerous for any vehicle travelling on it. Night driving is especially scary. Through my conversations with the villagers near Kashid I discovered that they have been losing precious business in tourism as people did not want to drive up such bad roads. Many of them have back  aches due to constant travelling on bumpy roads on bikes. 

Every citizen of this country has a right to good infrastructure and people from rural sector should not be bereft of basic amenities that we city dwellers enjoy.  If this route is repaired and the roads are made travel worthy, then it will benefit the people living along the route. It will increase their income as more tourists will use the route. It will also decrease the health issues related to travelling on bad roads as well as help avoid many accidents. 

Sign this petition to bring better life for our brothers and sisters living in villages. It took a trip for me to wake up to what was happening just 70kms from where I live and I want to make a difference to their lives. 

I request the esteemed Road and Transport Minister Shri Nitin Gadkari to please expedite this case and build better roads on the Alibagh route for the villagers and the travellers.
