Municipal Corporation of Manesar (MCM) has floated a tender to construct a new road connecting Vipul Lavanya Society to the main road in Sector 81 — a long-pending demand of the residents of the society.
“The length of the road would be 800 metres and the project is estimated to cost Rs 78 lakh. The contractor will be given three months to complete the construction work of the road,” said Vijay Dhaka, superintending engineer, MCM.
The residents of Vipul Lavanya have been demanding the connecting road for the past three years. The residents have knocked on the doors of corporations, the administration and political leaders. With the formation of a new corporation in Manesar, the residents said that their hope to get a road was renewed. The residents, in their own capacity, have filled up the craters on the kutcha road a number of times in the past few years to make it slightly motorable.
“After the MCM was formed last December, we thought that we would get a road before monsoons. But, the second wave hit and the work was delayed. The corporation has now invited the tender and it has given us a ray of hope that we will have a road soon. I had spoken to the engineers of the corporation and they said that even the base of the road does not exist. Even if you spend Rs 10 lakh on the road, it will wash away in the first showers of the monsoon. The situation is worse, especially during monsoons, because the road does not exist,” said Shibashish Rudra, a resident.
