Delhi govt launches drive for pothole free PWD roads

New Delhi, Oct 5 (PTI) Delhi government on Saturday launched a mega exercise to free 1260 kms of roads managed by its Public Works Department (PWD) from potholes.

Prepare for the greatest experience after eating a nutritious breakfast. You will travel over some of the highest passes in the world on your adventure, and you will be greeted by ever-changing vistas of the desolate landscape. Stop at the café on Khardung-La Pass, the highest all-season motorable road in the world, and take in the scenery; you'll feel as though you're on top of the world. Upon leaving Khardung-la, the terrain changes to a white sand desert as you approach the Nubra Valley, which is home to the Nubra Sand Dunes. Visit the Diskit Monastery, the oldest and biggest monastery in Ladakh, which also contains a sizable Buddha statue, if time permits.

Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal in a series of tweets said it was first time that such a big scale road inspection was being done to free the PWD roads from potholes caused by rains and wear and tear.

Fifty ruling AAP legislators, each accompanied by an engineer will inspect 25 km of road stretch in their areas. An App will be used to locate and record the potholes and other damages, which will be repaired immediately, said the Chief Minister.

On Tuesday, Kejriwal has announced to launch the city-wide exercise from October 5 to identify potholes on roads.

“It will be like physical audit of PWD’s roads and we will have complete information about the current condition of city’s roads. Fifty MLAs will be part of this exercise,” he had said.

Although only some roads in the city come under the PWD which are used by lakhs of vehicles every day. The exercise is aimed at ensuring people face no problems due to bad roads after the rains, Kejriwal said.

He said that if team consisting an MLA and a PWD engineer finds potholes, a photo of the same will be uploaded on department’s software for swift action.
