Pulwama: The vital Pulwama-Sangam road in south Kashmir’s Pulwama district is lying in dilapidated condition as locals demand its immediate mecadamisation.

Locals said that Pulwama-Sangam road is one of the most important roads of south Kashmir connecting hundreds of villages with Pulwama town, National Highway and other vital areas.

They said that road was macadamised around four years back and is now full of potholes and requires immediate attention of authorities.

They said that it developed cracks at several spots and the road is currently lying in dilapidated condition at most of the places as it hasn’t been macadamised since last three years.

Yasir Ahmad, a resident of Trichal Pulwama said that the road has vital importance and is connecting dozens of villages with district headquarter but it needs immediate attention of higher ups.

He said that at some spots the road is in good condition but at some places it is in dilapidated condition and must be macadamised at an earliest.

The locals said that the road is very important as it connects SIDCO Lassipora with National Highway and government must give attention towards it for the relief of locals and other commuters, besides industrial unit holders.

They said the road has a heavy rush and must be given priority as far as its repairs are concerned. They sought attention of LG Manoj Sinha, DC Pulwama and other officials in this regard.

Meanwhile, an official of R&B department said that work on the road will start within few days and very soon people will get relief.
