Nowshera-Shaldaji link road in dilapidated condition
Baramulla, October 12: Villagers of Shaldajan and adjoining villages of Nowshera in Boniyar Tehsil in Baramulla district are facing immense hardships as the only link road which connects the village and other adjoining villages to the highway at Nowshera is in a dilapidated condition.
According to locals, the link road is dotted with potholes and ruts making the traffic and pedestrian movement extremely difficult. “The government has not undertaken any repair work on this road since 2005.”
People claimed that they have approached the authorities several times with the complaint but their requests seem to fall on deaf ears.
When contacted Executive Engineer R&B Baramulla, Sheikh Basharat, said: “the repair work on the link road would start very soon. However, the macdamisation work is not possible right now given the dip in temperature.
