“This road is vital as it leads to SKIMS Soura. Patients face a lot of inconvenience due to potholes. This road has caved in at various spits and is not fit for vehicular movement. It has been a long time since we have been suffering due to bad road, however, and no one is paying heed,” said Manzoor Ahmad, a local.

The locals said that the road stretch, which is in shambles, is near a private school at Malabagh, and students too are suffering equally.

“Dilapidated road is not only hindering traffic, but it is seriously posing risk of accidents. The potholes are huge and full of water above ankle height. It gets hard for vehicles to move around. Multiple times, two-wheelers, auto rickshaws, and other vehicles suffered damaged due to potholes,” said Muzaffar Ahmad, a commuter.
