Official apathy: Singareni colony road is in bad condition owing official negligence.

The Singareni Colony road continues to be in a bad state. The potholed road , strewn with pebbles is unsafe for road users.

The road had witnessed digging activity a year ago for laying underground cable lines, though the dug up portion had been restored a few weeks ago with cement concrete mix, the portions of the old BT road that gave up its smooth shape due to extensive use remain to be problematic. “Owing to extensive use it is in a battered state,” says N. Venu gopal, a local resident of Singareni colony.

“A half of the road width is even while the other half is potholed and uneven, traffic proceeding on one side of the road has the privilege of a smooth ride ,” says K. Satish, a student.

“In many instances vehicles skidded while trying to negotiate these stretches,” says a local shop keeper.

“It is the two wheeler riders who face the maximum risk as the vehicle fails to smoothly negotiate through sand and loose gravel,” says Karthik, a MBA student.

The road users stress the need to urgently take the repairs as the road conditions are worsening each passing day.
