Firdosi Road, a link road connecting Rawalpindi and Chaklala areas, is fast breaking up due to non repair by the authorities concerned. The area residents and those from numerous areas, who transit from the area, demanded of the Chaklala Cantonment authorities to repair the dilapidated road.
Similarly the commuters demanded of the MES to repair the leaking water pipeline as it was further breaking up of the road. Tariq Butt, a resident of adjacent Tufail Road, said, “We have been urging the Cantonment officials to repair the link road, but wondered why they were not carrying out timely repair of the road.”
The residents also called for repair of Convoy Route as sections of the road urgently require timely repair. Anwar Ali, another resident, said as it was a concrete road its repair could be carried out in any weather. When asked, a senior official of the CCB said they would sonn carry out repair work. However, the residents wondered when that ‘soon’ would materialize.—APP
