Dwarka: The residents of Sector 7, Dwarka have been demanding the pruning of overgrown trees in the service lane from Plot number 1 to Plot number 17 that cause inconvenience in navigating city roads.
The residents say it is tough to spot traffic signals and approaching vehicles at the service lane. Some overgrown trees on the lane create blind spots while taking a turn or entering into lanes, making the area accident-prone.
Dwarka Forum and several residents have placed the issue before the Delhi Development Authority (DDA). “The DDA should take up the work right away as it is a serious threat,” said Anil Nayal, Executive Member of Dwarka Forum.
At quite a few lanes, it is dark and low-hanging branches are a serious threat to bikers and the authorities should now buckle up and work on this issue.
Avijit S, a resident of Sector 7, said, “At the service lane of Sector 7, there are trees that are almost about to fall on the main road.”
The DDA should act on the problem before a mishap occurs. Dwarka Forum members had carried out a complaint so many times for the pruning of trees with the DDA & Horticulture Department, but that went in vain as nothing was done about it.
CitySpidey talked to Amit Singh, Assistant Director of Horticulture Department regarding the issue. He said, “We will start the pruning trees on the service lane as soon as possible.”
