Srinagar, 22-08-2021: Residents of Noorani Colony, Royal Lane, Saadat Colony and Masjid Aisha Lane Padshahi Bagh Srinagar have appealed to CEO, Economic Reconstruction Agency to sanction the macadamization of interior lanes and bylanes of the area. Pertinent to mention here ERA has undertaken a drainage project in the area under the project title “Construction of Storm Water Drainage Scheme Banpora ” with project cost of rupees 28,74,72,725 funded by World Bank. All the work related to drainage has been completed in the lanes and bylanes of the area. Now the concerned contractor agency Wani-RBIOOL(JV) is saying the project has run over the cost and macadamization will not be possible now for interior lanes but only for the main road.
The residents said, before the project was started by ERA, the lanes and bylanes were fully macademized. Residents have requested the authorities to restore the road to its earlier condition. A delegation of the residents has already apprised the CEO ERA about the same in the month of July 2021. Residents also said we have suffered a lot during the construction of the drainage project since the last two years. Now that the winter is round the corner and the macademization must be started soon so that the inhabitants will be relieved of the difficulties caused during the wet weather conditions.
