Yes Belgaumites, it’s the truth. See these two pictures. One is taken from the Internet, which shows the surface of the moon and another one shows the Roads of Belgaum.
The difference between the two is very minimal.
These pictures are taken on Congress Road. Potholes are on both sides of the road. But the commendable thing is that all of them are in the center of the road. All these are in the road being maintained by the Cantonment Board. The congress road till Kagal(Nanawadi)cross is under the cantonment board Belgaum. The authorities had to fill these potholes with mud atleast have done nothing. See the video also its exactly in front of the main gate of Military Mahadev. This is the most dangerous one Infact daily people going in speed have to put on brakes and at least a couple of people fall down nearby this potholes braking in speed.
Not only this road but also many roads in the outer suburbs are in more bad condition. But amongst them all those coming under the Cantonment board are the worst. The roads leading to City Bus stand it feels like you are traveling in a boat, up and down and up and down.
This problem of potholes is universal, but we have to do something. Our money paid, as taxes should be used in a good manner for these roads.
A request all those in Belgaum just send in the Pictures of potholes in your area to [email protected]
. See that they are under 100KB in size and in JPG format. I will try and upload those on the blog. Also don’t forget to mention the area (if possible exact spot).
