With reference to your ‘Focus’ on the subject “UGD work adds to woes of road users” (Dt.20/03/08), I wish to bring to your notice that the 20’ road at Madhavadhara which has HIG plots 60 to 69 was dug up about two and a half months ago.

A manhole is located in front of my house (HIG 63). Though the manhole was built up to ground level within 15 days, refilling was done only 15 days later that too after repeated reminders to the municipal corporation staff. Until then no vehicle including EMRI 108 ambulance could enter our road.

Though it is already a month since the refilling was done, the heaps on the road were not levelled and the surplus earth was not removed. The corporation authorities seem to have already paid the dues to the contractor.

Many of us living on this road are senior citizens and if any emergency arises no vehicle can enter this road even now.
