The aggrieved residents said that authorities had started the macadamization in the area; during which, several stretches in were macadamized, however, this significant stretch has been left without macadamization.
They said that the contractor started some work but then left it pending and now the dusty road has become a nuisance for the people.

A shopkeeper Farooq Ahmad said that the goods in their shops are getting damaged due to dust, and we are being forced to close down our shops, we have also suffered massive losses due to back to back Covid-19 lockdowns and now the dust has added to our problems.
The residents and the shopkeepers urged the LG led administration to look into the matter and direct the concerned department to macadamize the road soon.
Speaking to Rising Kashmir, Chief Engineer Er. Shaukat Jeelani said he will look into the matter and will take proper measures accordingly. SMC organises Sunday for Srinagar cleanliness drive
