Subject: poor condition of roads and lack of street lights in ashok vihar
I, Aman Kaur, am a resident of Alhok Vihar. This letter is to draw the attention of the SDMC to the pathetic condition of roads in Ashok Vihar. The stretch between sector 52 and sector 75 has been in a very poor state for the last 6 months. This stretch, which is one of the busiest roads in New Delhi, also lacks street lighting. The onset of the monsoon has only worsened the situation. There are huge potholes on this stretch of road, which along with zero maintenance leads to huge traffic jams during the peak hours.
Needless to say, the damage it causes to the vehicles plying on this road is costing the citizens heavily. Almost every other day, a vehicle is punctured, dented, or gets stuck. Lack of proper lighting only adds to the misery of the people. The number of accidents occurring here has also gone up significantly.
Further, it has become very difficult for pedestrians to walk along this road due to the fact that vehicles, including company buses, cabs, and tend to avoid the potholes and drive along the sides of the roads, where pedestrians tend to walk because of the lack of proper footpaths.
These conditions have caused a lot of inconvenience to the residents of this area as well as commuters.
Keeping the above in view, I hope that the SDMC will initiate expeditious steps to ensure the repair of this road with proper lighting.
