Jammu: At least four parked private cars and a two-wheeler were damaged on Wednesday after the recently constructed roadside caved-in along the Circular road here, officials said.The pavement along the road, which connects Panjtirthi with Gujjar Nagar, collapsed near Baba Lal Ji temple, officials said.They said the vehicles fell over 100 feet from the road, triggering protest by the local residents who demanded an inquiry into the incident as the retaining wall along with the pavement was re-constructed recently after a similar incident in August last year. A police party rushed to the scene to regulate traffic, the officials said.As per the details, the road was washed away last year in August after the region witnessed heavy monsoon rains but this time it collapsed even without a drop of rain.Constructed between Panjtarthi to Gujjar Nagar Bridge linking DC office at Wazarat Road and Chief Minister’s Officials Residence at Residency Road, the Circular road is an important link for commoners, who wish hassle-free journey and avoid city’s traffic mess.Locals alleged that substandard material had been used to repair the road resulting in its sudden collapse. “As this road was reconstructed just eight months ago, the concerned officials should carry out a probe into this matter,” said a local.He further added that its sheer callousness of administration and municipal officials playing with the lives of people.“It is a busy road, used by people going to other parts of the city but administration has only installed steel sheets (tin sheets) at damaged portions and no civil work took place for months,” locals added.
