Questions are being raised over the safety of commuters on the city roads with a number of cave-ins happening recently. About 10-foot-wide pit appeared on Southern Bypass near Ferozepur Road when the road caved in.

According to the PWD officials, the road portion may have caved in due to soil erosion caused by the recent rain. Superintending Engineer of PWD Kulwant Singh said the road would be repaired by Saturday. Recently, road cave-ins happened on Kaka Marriage Palace Road and in Phase II of Dugri.

A city resident, Gagandeep Singh, said the authorities concerned should find a solution to avert road cave-ins.
