Panchkula, January 14

After Chandigarh Tribune carried a news report, “NHAI doesn’t care two hoots for DC’s orders”, highlighting the pothole-ridden Zirakpur-Kalka highway, the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) today started patchwork on the badly damaged Zirakpur-Kalka highway.

Deputy Commissioner Mahavir Kaushik had, on December 22 last year, instructed the NHAI to repair the highway in 15 days.

The NHAI project director, Pardeep Atri, also dispatched a letter to the DC, saying the “requisite repairs will be completed in a fortnight or so.”

The NHAI said the necessary repairs of potholes on the highway were undertaken in November and December last year and rendered almost patch-free, but later the weather conditions were not conducive for bituminous work to sustain.

“The reported potholes seem to have re-generated during the recent incessant rain,” the NHAI stated in the letter, dated January 14. —
