This industrial belt road is slush-filled; GMC promises it will be fixed this month.

Workers are worried that they will have to wreak havoc on water-filled potholes, making them more vulnerable to accidents . Ghaziabad municipal commissioner Mahendra Singh Tanwar says road restoration has started .

Ghaziabad, Apr.20: On a 200-meter stretch of the busy Bulandshahr Industrial Road in Ghaziabad, potholes, gravel, and slush are keeping workers from going out for the day.Although workers are more vulnerable to accidents when swerving to avoid the slush, Ace Hardware Private Limited's chief says, the road in front of our unit was already damaged.It has now been worsening, having been uninstalled for months.

We're concerned about how our containers will arrive and go as 90% of our production is export-based.The poor condition of the road means that daily use and tear will increase costs, according to factory workers, who said that flooding from sewer backups on the road connecting GT Road to Diamond Flyover filled the area with an unbearable stench, adding that public officials were yet to act on the issue despite complaints.According to Sahdev Goel, a factory worker, labour is gradually returning to normal post-Covid.However, the dangerous condition of the road here will make it difficult for us to even invite clients.

Due to the precarious state of the road, more and more women like me have switched to three-wheelers, which are difficult to find and are also susceptible to accidents as a result of the impact of the potholes and slush, according to Ghaziabad municipal commissioner Mahendra Singh Tanwar.Road restoration has started.We also visited the area and identified the areas where improvement is needed.It is expected to be completed by this month, he said.
