Gurgaon: Residents of Sector 84 have been facing a tough time while commuting the road connecting Sikanderpur and Sihi, which is riddled with potholes and flooded with sewage due to choked drains, for some days now. This has led to several accidents in the past few days and many commuters have suffered severe injuries, according to residents living in housing colonies along the road, which includes SS Coralwood, Almeria, Spaze Privy, Diwan, and Gurgaon One. Furthermore, stagnant water has become a breeding ground for mosquitoes, they claimed.On Wednesday, a group of residents met Manesar SDM and additional commissioner of Municipal Corporation of Manesar (MCM) and demanded action against officials for failing to maintain and repair the road.Dinesh Garg, vice president of Gurgaon One RWA, said, “We are struggling while commuting via this road. We can’t reach our offices on time. The road has even become prone to accidents. Sewage on road is a hazard too.” Parents have particularly expressed concerns as three play schools are situated along the road. “The road is in a dilapidated condition. Our children are forced to wade through dirty water,” said Taru Bhatia, a resident of SS Coralwood. Puran Singh, RWA president of SS Coralwood, pointed out that this is the main connecting road for several societies, which is frequently flooded with sewage water due to leakages in a drainage pipe. Despite approaching the authorities, no permanent resolution has been put in place yet. “This is the only connecting road to our sector. It gets flooded with water, mostly sewage from a temporary drainage pipe along it. Leaks in the pipe lead to flooding. We have approached all civic authorities and many political leaders to flag our concerns but nothing concrete has been done on ground,” said Singh. When contacted by TOI, Vijay Dhaka, superintending engineer of MCM, acknowledged the recurring problems caused by leakages in the sewage pipeline. “While temporary fixes have been made, the problem persists as the pipeline continues to burst. However, efforts are being made by the corporation to provide a permanent solution, and we plan to float a tender for drainage work after the election,” he said.
