Residents of sectors 21 and 22 are fed up with a pothole-riddled road in the area. Despite several written complaints to the Municipal Corporation of Gurgaon (MCG), there has been no action taken.  

Residents said MCG had promised them work would start in January. Four months later, they have lost all hope of even having a proper road by the monsoons. The stretch connects Udyog Vihar phases II to V, NH 8, DLF Cyber City and Delhi.

“The 500-m road from Salarpur border to Old Delhi is full of potholes and it becomes next to impossible to cross that stretch,” said  Colonel (Retd) Umed Singh, president of the Sector 21 RWA. “The internal roads in our sector are also in the same condition, which are in bad shape for the past three years. In February last year, HUDA [Haryana Urban Development Authority] took over sectors 21 and 22, but the condition of the roads is the same, or even worse.”

“I use this stretch every day to get to my office in Udyog Vihar Phase II,” said Pawan Sood, a commuter. “There are heavy traffic snarls during peak hours owing to the poor condition of the road. I waste half an hour on this road for absolutely no reason.”

MR Sharma, superintending engineer of MCG, said, “We have started road repair work in most sectors, and work in sectors 21 and 22 will start soon.”
