The unending work of GVMC either digging up roads or leaving them without repair for a long time is putting citizens to hardship bordering on grave risk. Whatever is the work, it is elementary that basic precautions are taken. The big pit dug out opposite the Port Stadium at Akkayyapalem abutting the National Highway puts hundreds of people going to the stadium or the others living in the neighbourhood and using the road at risk. It has been nearly three weeks since the crater has been dug out.

A large number of people, including women and senior citizens, come to the stadium for morning or evening walk. The steady stream begins right from early morning. Any unwary walker or a little lack of attention may land them in trouble. The road also is a convenient diversion for many who live in the nearby Green Park area or the adjacent streets.

Putting a cautionary signal and board on the nature of the work and completing the work at the earliest is the relief citizens expect.
