Bhadarwah: Residents and commuters beside those associated with tourism industry in Jammu and Kashmir’s additional district Bhadarwah are facing a tough time due to the unrepaired 30km road stretch from Pul Doda to Bhadarwah on Bhadarwah-Pathankot national highway.Residents alleged that due pathetic attitude of BRO (114 RCC) which has been assigned for the construction and maintenance of the road, it has become extremely difficult to commute on this strategically important road stretch as the road is not only full of potholes but has sunken at more than half a dozen places.Yusaf Butt of Domail Bhadarwah said we are unable to understand that despite being a strategically important highway which connects Jammu and Kashmir with Punjab via Basohli and Pathankot, why BRO is shying away to perform even the basic maintenance like that of numerous pot-holes and sunken portions thereby leaving the commuters to face the hardships and sometime back injuries.The residents alleged that despite numerous representations to BRO authorities and District administration, the road has been left unrepaired since last 5 years, which is not only affecting the local commuters but also tourism industry as visitors didn’t like to revisit the valley because of the deplorable condition of the road.When contacted, ADC Bhadarwah Rakesh Kumar assured that he has taken up the matter with OC 114 RCC and he has been assured that the macadamization of Doda-Bhadarwah road will be started from March this year. “This is a genuine issue and many delegations have raised this issue and I have taken this with OC 114 RCC and he has promised start the blacktop of complete 30 km stretch positively from March,” said Rakesh Kumar ADC Bhadarwah.
