QHyderabad: Metro to Chug Into HiTec City; Potholes on New Roads

1. Craters, Potholes on New Roads Haunt Commuters

The Hyderabad Road Development Corporation Limited has left city roads to the dogs. The corporation, which built 100 km out of total 320 km in eight months, left the roads with craters and potholes at several places. In the absence of a grievance redressal system, citizens have been bearing the brunt. Surprisingly, nodal agencies do not even have an annual tender mechanism to take up road repair.

The road is damaged at Banjara Hills Road No. 2 at Aramgarh road, specifically from the Owaisi Junction to Chandrayangutta Durganagar; Sarojini Devi Hospital to Madhur Sweets in Mehdipatnam; Malakpet; Nalgonda crossroads and Saidabad.
