Separate department for road repair work

Poor condition of roads is one of the major problems faced by residents of Panchkula. Newsline had also reported that the Haryana government had marked a vigilance inquiry into the alleged use of sub-standard material in the repair and re-carpeting of roads in Panchkula. Earlier, the MC had decided not to start the second phase of repair work of roads in the wake of the inquiry.
