29 dug up roads in Old Gurgaon: Work stalled for the last four months
Gurgaon is a city of paradoxes, where on one side one sees high-rises, late night parties and big restaurants and on the other side electricity problems, bad roads and water shortages are the order of the day. The glitz and the glamour is restricted to one part of the town, whereas the old Gurgaon suffers from the rest of the problem. Roads, dug up with soil on either side of it is an old story in this part of the millennium city.

Citing this problem, Ward 10 councilor Mangat Ram Bagri expressed his concern over the matter. The pending road construction is not only a traffic hazard in Old Gurgaon but also makes roads troublesome. Mangat Ram Bagri informed that 29 lanes and by-lanes in Ward number 10 has been dug up and work is still pending, making lives difficult in these places.

The lane near Shani Mandir and four other lanes have been in repairing mode for the last four months. The work in these places are not progressing and the residents are facing daily problems due to the same. Apart from traffic hurdles, the possibility of accidents have increased. Also, children's vans are not able to come to their place to pick them up for school and due to rains the entire area is a complete mess.

The contract for repairing of these roads have been handed over to Naresh Sharma. The cost of remaking these roads have been quoted as 99 lakh 99 thousand rupees and the decision for repairing these roads were taken four months prior to the elections, but the contractor delayed the work citing many problems. The MCG is also not answering the queries put forward by the ward councilors.

The roads would pose a huge problem if they are not repaired before the rainy seasons is what the residents fear.
