Over 10,000 Potholes On City Roads

GHMC spends Rs 900 crore every year on road maintenance and construction of new roads. Road recarpeting and maintenance has cost Rs 2,520 crore since 2016 but there is no visible change in the condition of the roads in the city. Experts estimate that there are currently up to 10,000 potholes on the roads of the city.


On the other hand, all the internal roads became worse due to the strike of the contractors. The contractors went on strike demanding that the work be stopped till the pending bills of 1000 crore are paid. As a result, road repair works have stopped. Things are the same not only in the Old City but also in areas like Banjara Hills, Jubilee Hills, and HITEC City. 


Motorists are meeting with accidents and are complaining about back pains due to the badly-battered roads. The vehicles are also getting repairs. Previously, a commissioner announced 1,000 Rupees cash prize if citizens show a pothole on the roads. Previous Commissioner Lokesh Kumar has directed to slash the officers' salaries if potholes are found on main roads handed over to private agencies. But nothing has happened and the roads are the same. The officials are saying the roads were not being repaired due to the rains but most of these damages exist even before the rains.
