Authorities turn blind eye as potholes trouble motorists on Udupi - Gundibail road

Daijiworld Media Network – Udupi (JD)

Udupi, June 19: The Udupi – Gundibail road is back with its share of problems again. The road connecting Udupi city with the National Highway 66 had seen its worst days just three months ago when the Varahi water pipeline laying project was undertaken in this area.

Even though the Varahi water pipeline laying work has now been completed, the unfinished work is creating more danger to motorists. Contractors who undertook the pipeline laying work have left the road without repairing it. Only one bed of cement stones has been put to cover the potholes and the road remains unfinished.

Recently, the road was dug up for other works opposite the Mehaan complex in this area. This work too remains unfinished and the contractors have placed barricades just as a warning sign. The commuters are finding it difficult to use this road filled with potholes. Everyday thousands of two-wheelers, four-wheelers including heavy vehicles ply on this road.

Ahead of the onset of the monsoon, it was the responsibility of the City Municipality to make the roads motorable and ready for the rainy season. But, Udupi city municipality does not seem to be concerned about the Udupi – Gundibail road. In March 2022, one stretch of the road was completely closed for the pipeline laying work. Now, the unfinished works are causing problems for a smooth commute.
