Incomplete repairing of one of the busiest roads of Dwarka, Road Number 201, has become a nuisance for the commuters these days.

The road, which connects the sub city to west and south Delhi, has been in a neglected state for a long time. According to the people residing in societies located alongside the road, the repair work was carried out a few months back but it wasn’t completed, which has now become a hassle for the commuters.

Almost half of the road has been carpeted and the other half has been left as it was. This has made the surface uneven causing skidding of bike and imbalance of vehicles. The road is in this bad shape at the Dwarka-Palam flyover going towards Sectors 6 and 7.

Ravi Jaitely, a resident of Harsukh Apartments in Sector 7, said, “We were very happy when they had started the repair work as the portion of the road was in a bad shape for a long time. But they should have competed it. Now the road has become dangerous as there is a slope and a sudden dip in a stretch of about 100 meters.”

Due to incomplete work, the entire stretch has also become a source of flying dust in the area. People with respiratory illnesses and asthma, living in nearby societies, are facing a tough time these days. RK Singh, a resident of Sector 7 DDA Pockets located near that stretch, said, “Dust is everywhere in our society and the cause is the road. Not only the main road but service road also needs attention. I can’t understand why DDA is not taking it seriously?”

City Spidey visited the area and found that the road was not safe for bikers. Broken pieces of glasses were scattered on the road hinting at some recent accident in the area. The uneven surface of the road only adds to the hassle.

When asked to comment on the subject, a DDA official said that the incomplete work would be finished soon.
