Weeks after the rains hit Hyderabad, exposing the crumbling infrastructure in the city, many roads are still filled with craters, especially in the Cyberabad and IT sector area.
The Times of India reported that GHMC officials in-charge of the area said that many roads were 'covered up' and repaired.
Speaking to TOI, R Mohan Singh, GHMC's superintending engineer for West zone said:
"We have completed repair work at Botanical Gar den and Gachibowli junctions. The severely damaged 200-250 metre-long stretch in front of E-Park in Kothaguda has also been repaired.Work has also started on damaged stretches on Gachibowli-Hafeezpet road. Since relaying the entire road is not feasible, we are looking to repair severely damaged stretches on the KondapurMadhapur road, MadhapurJNTU road and MadhapurCyber Tower road."
Meanwhile, contractors who were suspended for their shoddy work while laying earlier roads, are reportedly being made to repair the damage themselves.
Deccan Chronicle reported:
The road maintenance agreement makes the contractor liable to repair the road for two years since the time the road is laid...the GHMC first suspends the contractor and then writes to the government to blacklist the firm. The contractor can be blacklisted only after approval from the government. Blacklisted contractors will not be allowed to participate in any further tenders of the GHMC.
