The cover on the underground gutter lying in the middle of the road opposite Sau Laxmibai School is in a broken condition. This has greatly inconvenienced the residents, motorists and school-going kids using this road. What’s more, this broken lid poses a serious threat to the lives of innocents. Motorists going towards Neelam Nagar from the Eastern Express Highway frequently use this road. Moreover, students of Sau Laxmibai Vidyamandir and Indian Education Society Dode High School also traverse this stretch of road. To add to this, the broken lid is not visible at night which would be an open invitation to disastrous consequences. Therefore, the citizens in this vicinity are vociferously demanding that the authorities repair the lid post haste to bring the much-awaited relief to them.
