Broken roads with big potholes are a common scene in Ludhiana these days and the condition has gone from bad to worse after few rainfalls in the winters. With elections in mind, Mayor H S Gohalwaria on Wednesday said that they will carry out patch work of all the broken roads and re-metalling of nine main roads of the city.
The repair work has just started in few of the city areas and the re-metalling works had already been approved before the implementation of model code of conduct.
When asked about the pot holes appearing just after 2-3 rain showers in the city, the Mayor blamed the contractors for the poor quality of the work. “We have made the rules more strict now. We have made it mandatory to use only ISI-approved tiles for making footpath.”
