Road dug up for laying sewer pipes causes hardship for residents

Welcoming the sewer pipe laying in some parts of Abul Fazal Encalve, many residents and commuters are facing hardship due to the dug up road and inordinate delay in wrapping up the work.

Residents lamented that several streets in AFE, including D, G and others, have been dug up for sewer laying causing hardship to residents.

“We are not against the work. We know it is being done for the betterment of the people but what worries us is that the lanes are left in bad state for months. So it is our request from the representatives that they should not leave roads dug up rather the work should be done systematically from one lane to another lane for the comfort of the residents,” said a resident on the condition of anonymity.

Residents said following digging up road for weeks the road has turned unmortable and just think if something goes run how can one carry patient to hospital. A resident of J block AFE said his road around Bakrid and still the work is not complete with locals facing hardship.

At times, they said even vehicles and e-rickshaws cannot reach our home. And when it rain then two-wheeler riders generally lose balance while pedestrians also face inconvenience due to the slippery conditions on the dug up road, said residents.
