Blame game in Suncity over broken roads

Broken and worn off roads in Suncity, a township in Gurgaon, has become a nuisance for residents of the area. The movement of traffic is affected and there are jams in the area. While residents are blaming the builder for the state of affairs, the builder says the residents are at fault.

VMK Singh, general secretary of the RWA, says, “We have tried to speak to the builder so many times, but all in vain. They met us once and made false promises. No repair work has been done.”

According to residents, since 1998 when they got the possession, no re-carpeting work has been done in the area. The monsoons season leaves deep potholes on the roads that cause damage to their vehicles and inconvenience to them.

The condition of the roads in blocks E and F is worse. Anita Aryani, a resident of block E, says, “Nobody can imagine that there is this kind of society on Gurgaon’s prime location - Golf Course. The entire block is filled with dust in this season. It’s such a pity.”  



Abhay Punia, a resident of block C and advisor to the RWA, tells City Spidey, “Only a 24-metre wide road in front of Suncity school was maintained by the builder. No other internal roads were ever maintained. The roads wear a pathetic look. The builder initially took advance money when the houses were allotted and promised us maintenance. But nothing has been in the name of development.”

Residents also allege that the potholed roads are further worsened by stray dogs that keep digging the potholes further. They feel that they do not live in the gated community.

Shalini Patrash, a resident of block B, says, “Due to such roads, my car often needs servicing. Potholes cover the major part of the roads.”

When City Spidey spoke to Harinder Kumar, general manager, Suncity Builder, he said, “The builder took the advance money for maintenance security which covers the underground water pipelines, fitting of electricity poles and streetlights and not maintenance of roads. Residents are not paying any maintenance charges to Suncity. They need to pay the same for recurring expenditures so that the repair work can be done.”
