The developer of the high-rise has started to fill the portion of the dilapidated road.
Months of struggle and stress seems to come to an end as the Charms Castle, a high-rise in Raj Nagar Extension, developer is likely to repair the dilapidated road which was annoying the society residents. The developer of the high-rise has started to fill the portion of the dilapidated road.
For the last three months, the stretch of road just in front of the main gate of the society was in a dilapidated state.The school going children were facing a hard time in catching the morning school bus as right in front of the main gate, large potholes had appeared which used to get filled with water after rain. It became difficult for the children to wait for the bus on the main road. At times, the bus driver also refused to pick up the children from the main gate fearing damage to the bus from the potholes.
How did the road's condition got worst? When asked from the residents, they blamed the builder for it.
The builder is developing a commercial complex on the road just across the high-rise. Due to the construction of the complex, heavy trucks carrying building material started plying multiple times daily on the road. The weight and frequency of the trucks made the road uneven and many potholes started to appeared on it, the residents claimed. “Whenever rain poured, the road turned into a huge swamp, told Deepak Bhardwaj, a resident of the society.
The residents later complained about the situation multiple times to the builder. When they did not find any response from him, they raised this matter to Ghaziabad Development Authority and Ghaziabad Municipal Corporation. “However, rather than resolving the issue, all of them passed the buck on each other,” said Bhuri Singh, a resident of the society.
On Wednesday, when CitySpidey published the prevailing situation on its website, the builder started reconstructing the dilapidated stretch.
While speaking to CitySpidey, Vinay Sisodia, AGM of the Charms Castle, said that due to heavy rains, the mud beneath the road had eroded which resulted in potholes on the portion. "Currently, we have filled the stretch with mud and levelled it. The concretization of the stretch has now started," he said.
Meanwhile, the residents expressed happiness after this latest development on the stretch. "Now we won't have to face trouble anymore," said Sunil Singh, a resident of the society.
