A road inside Punjab Agricultural University near the gate opposite Rose Garden, which was dug for fixing inter-locking tiles, has become a nightmare for commuters as the work has been discontinued abruptly.
The half-dug road was not only causing inconvenience to motorists but also leading to accidents from the past many days. Although the road has not been re-carpeted fully, today it was covered with sand as a temporary measure.
A student who yesterday met with an accident said she was coming to university from the gate located near Rose Garden. “A speeding vehicle was coming from another side. I moved to one side to save myself but the road was dug. I lost my balance and fell on the road. I got a few bruises. Had my vehicle been on high speed it could have proved fatal,” she said.
A B.Sc (Agriculture) student said authorities concerned should get it re-carpeted at the earliest.
“A portion of the road was dug many days ago and the work here is still incomplete. Either, the work should be completed or the road patch should be repaired,” said an employee from the university.
Dr Ashok, Estate Officer, PAU, said the work was being done by the Mandi Board. “Actually there was no plan to install tiles on the road and it has been wrongly dug. We have asked the concerned to re-carpet the road since there is no plan to install the tiles in the road and hopefully it will be done soon,” he said.
