Sheeri–Laridora road in shambles
Baramulla: The dilapidated condition of Sheeri–Laridora road is causing immense hardships to the commuters and pedestrians as the Government has not undertaken any repair work on this road since years, not to speak of macdamisation.
This year many roads got macadamized; however, this arterial 12 kilometers road which connects Baramulla with Baba Reshi via around 40 villages of Narvaw is in a very bad condition and dotted with huge potholes and bumps due to which the commuters are facing tremendous inconvenience.
“The passenger vehicles have to move at snail’s pace in order to avoid the potholes and bumps,” said Farooq Ahmad Shiekh, a local resident of Malpora.
Sheikh said that during rainfall, the potholes get filled with water and thus making the pedestrian movement very difficult.
When contacted Chief Engineer R&B Kashmir, Er. Showkat Jeelani, said that Sheeri-Laridora 12 kilometer stretch is under Centeral Road Funds Scheme (CRF).
“We have taken up the matter with government and hope that funds will be released for the roads under CRF,” Jeelani added.
