The dilapidated road leading to the Sarabha ancestral village of Shaheed Kartar Singh Sarabha from Phullanwal Chowk, Ludhiana is crying out for urgent attention.

Villagers have been raising their voices for a long time, but the PWD has yet to provide repairs to Shaheed Kartar Singh Sarabha Marg (formerly known as Pakhowal Road).

The road has become a nightmare for commuters as many accidents are said to have occurred on the stretch. Large potholes appeared near Lalton, Mansooran, Papa and other places on the road. Potholes at some sites are too deep, posing a serious threat to the lives of commuters, especially two-wheeler drivers.

Sarabjit Singh Dhillon, a businessman, said: “I travel daily on this rutted road which has not been repaired or resurfaced for a long time. Large potholes appeared on the stretch between Phullanwal Chowk and near the bend in Pakhowal village. The risk of accidents therefore remains high on the section.

“The road leads to the ancestral village of Shaheed Kartar Singh Sarabha from Ludhiana but it is still ignored. make it worse,” he said.

Jaswinder Singh Rana, a resident of Sarabha village, said, “The dilapidated road is not being repaved despite our repeated requests to the authorities concerned. Several accidents have already taken place on this rutted road. Passing over potholes, vehicles are also damaged. It should be fixed without further delay.

Earlier, a section between Phullanwal Chowk and near the village of Lalton was rebuilt around five years ago after a sewer line was installed. Later, the road collapsed in several places. Now the road surface is not even leveled.

Gill Constituency MP Jiwan Singh Sangowal said: “The problem regarding the bad road condition is in my opinion. I had an estimate prepared for the repairs to the road and it was submitted to the minister concerned for approval. I hope that the resurfacing work of the section will begin soon.

PWD Sub-Division Officer Kamaljit Singh said: “A road repair proposal from Phullanwal Chowk to Pakhowal has been sent to the government for required approval. After obtaining approval, an additional process will be initiated to repair the road. »

On the martyr’s birth anniversary last month, AAP MP Ashok Parashar Pappi also announced that Shaheed Kartar Singh Sarabha Marg would be totally revamped.
