Locals from locality near Darhal Bridge said that the road from Rajouri town to Thanamandi is under up-gradation but first five kilometres of the road work from Rajouri town is yet to be taken up.

They added that this first five kilometres stretch of the road is in severe dilapidated condition as Border Roads Organisation (BRO) has to construct a Byepass Road leaving beside old alignment. No maintenance and repair is being done.
