Gurugram: Poor infrastructure a worry for Ardee City residents

The residents of Ardee City, a residential colony in sector 52 are having harrowing time due to poor infrastructure in their colony. Bad roads, poor drainage system, dysfunctional street lights, to name a few. The residents are facing these problems over a decade and appalled with the pathetic attitude of the developer and the authority.

The residents informed that the roads in Ardee City, have not been built for nearly a decade. There are numerous potholes on the roads and condition gets worse in the monsoon. Chaitali Mandhotra, a resident of Ardee city said, "This is our worst nightmare. The damaged roads are prone to accidents and stagnant water becomes a major cause for water-borne diseases in the vicinity. The conditions of roads are very poor and the developer has made no attempt to repair it in the past several years."

There are about 12 thousand people living in the colony who are facing trouble due to lack of infrastructure. The residents alleged that the authority and developer are passing the buck to each other and are doing nothing to ease their problem.

People are very concerned about the condition of the roads and demanded that the colony to be brought under Municipal Corporation at the earliest. Praveen Kumar, President of Ardee city said, "We have time and again requested the district administration to transfer our colony to MCG like many other colonies, but nothing has been done to expedite the matter. The developer has withdrawn all its services to the residents and for the last one year we are maintaining the cleanliness and hygiene in the colony through voluntary contributions but people cannot recarpet roads by themselves."
