Gurugram: For Vipul Lavanya residents, a five-year wait for link road to end
GURUGRAM: A five-year wait ended for Vipul Lavanya residents on Saturday when the Municipal Corporation of Manesar initiated construction of the village road to connect the society to the main road linking sectors 81 and 86.
The MCM has sanctioned Rs 75 lakh for the construction of a 7-metre-wide, 1km-long RMC road. The officials hope to complete the project before Diwali as it was the first project after the formation of a new municipal body.
“The full-fledged construction work will be started in the coming days. The deadline has been set at the end of four months but we will try to complete it before that,” said Vijay Dhaka, superintending engineer, MCM.
In the absence of a 24m internal sector road, the residents have had a tough time commuting on the road riddled with potholes. They have been raising the issue with the authorities concerned, local MLA and even hold street protests numerous times.
Amit Shekhar, vice-president of LRWA said, “We did everything we could to highlight the issue at every platform through various means. We had also spent from our pockets to repair the road to make it motorable, but that was a temporary measure.”
Shibashish Rudra, a resident, said: “This is the only road that connects our society to the rest of the city. Now, there is a sigh of relief.”
