Gurugram: A group of residents of NBCC Green View, located in Sector 37D, on Thursday met the newly appointed Gurugram Metropolitan Development Authority (GMDA) Chief Executive Officer VS Kundu over the construction of master sector road.
The residents handed over a memorandum to the GMDA CEO and demanded the construction of master sector road to connect their society with the sector for their convenience. GMDA CEO assured them of a solution soon.
The residents complained that they can approach their society only through 60-meter-wide master sector road in front of BPTP Park Serene, however, the road is partially completed and a stretch remains unconstructed. They said they are forced to commute through swamp of land in the monsoon season and are facing difficulties due to several potholes.
They said that it is a cause of concern among the residents as at the time of medical or fire emergency, things can go out of hands.
Joint secretary of AOA at NBCC Green View, Vinay Gupta who was part of the delegation said, “We met the GMDA CEO and submitted a memorandum urging him to take action on the matter at the earliest. The residents are suffering a lot in the absence of road connectivity. Even the emergency vehicles are facing difficulties.”
“People are reluctant to move in as there is no road connectivity to the society, even we feel embarrassed inviting guests over here as they faced lot of inconvenience. We are being deprived of our basic right of living for which we have paid in form of several taxes to the government.” Gupta added.
While the flat possession are underway in the society, more than 100 families are living at a complex at present. They complained that the school children are compelled to walk long as the bus drivers refuse to come near the society with no proper road connectivity.
The residents informed that the issue was highlighted to then PWD Minister Rao Narbir Singh, who had provided them with partial relief with the levelling and embankment of 8-meter-wide road against the 60-meter-wide plan of the road. However this temporary solution cannot withstand for long.
Yadvendra Yadav, a resident of the society said, “We have made several representation on the matter to the concerned department but the problem is yet to resolved. As there are litigations going on land acquisition, we would request the concerned authorities to construct the existing 8-meter-wide small stretch of over 100 meters with bitumen as a temporary measure and then expedite the construction of 60-meter-wide road of the remaining stretch.”
