Dwarka: As soon as it is dusk, the whole lane in front of Bensups Hospital gets dark in Sector 12, Dwarka.
When CitySpidey visited the area, the street lights were not working properly and the whole lane was dark. The installation of street lights serves no purpose if the area is not well lit.
Jitendra Kumar Singh, a resident of Sector 12 said, “This is an important road and in the absence of functioning street lights, people are put to great inconvenience. Both pedestrians and others using this road have been facing problems for weeks now.”
Senior citizens and women in particular are the worst sufferers and face the risk of getting knocked down by motorists. People, not being able to see the road clearly for potholes etc. can get hurt.
Prema Garg, a resident of Sector 12 said, “It is risky, dangerous and difficult for anybody to walk on this road. Plus, there are potholes in some places and without any light, it is very risky to walk here.”
Vijay Dagar, a commuter said, “Issue is that most of the street lights are covered with tree branches which need to be trimmed regularly.”
