Ganderbal, Sep 18: In a fervent plea to address their daily hardships, residents of Shallabugh village in central Kashmir's Ganderbal district are urging the government to construct a bridge over the Nallah Sindh. They assert that the current reliance on an unsafe wooden bridge has become a perilous necessity, hindering the livelihoods of many.
Explaining the dire situation, a resident stated, "We have land on the other side of the Nallah, and neighboring farmers also rely on this bridge to access their fields. So, we are left with no choice but to cross this rickety wooden bridge, which poses a constant danger to us."
Despite the presence of a proper macadamised road, the absence of a durable bridge across Nallah Sindh has left the residents disconnected from the Srinagar district. A bridge, they argue, would not only enhance connectivity but also improve the socio-economic conditions of the region.
The makeshift wooden bridge, assembled by locals, is in a dilapidated state, raising concerns of a potential collapse. The residents fear that the bridge's instability could lead to accidents and disrupt daily life for the people of Shallabugh and nearby areas.
In their plea, the locals have called upon the LG administration and the Deputy Commissioner of Ganderbal to intervene and address this pressing issue. They implore the government to take swift action in constructing a concrete bridge over Nallah Sindh, a move that they believe will alleviate the suffering of the people in Shallabugh and neighboring villages, ultimately fostering development in the region.
