Poor state of GTB Road posing threat to commuters

By Correspondent

DHUBRI, Oct 28 - Commuters are facing untold problems and are facing accidents due to the poor state of one of the busiest roads of the district, the GTB Road connecting Dhubri and Gauripur. The bumpy road with countless potholes, large chunks of concrete lying haphazardly in the middle of the road, has made journey between Dhubri and Gauripur, not only unpleasant but also prone to accidents. The road, through which hundreds of public as well as private vehicles run to and fro daily, is in its dilapidated state for the last over six months and with passing days the condition of the road is getting poorer.

�Due to the poor state of the road especially in the area where the road is about to enter Gauripur, we witness minor accidents almost daily�, said Abdullah Ahmed a driver of a commercial vehicle, who plies his vehicle five-six times through the road, daily. He also said, �The road is not only uncomfortable and dangerous for the drivers of the vehicles and its consumers, but also for the VIPs and administrative heads who take this road daily�.

�Even deaths and grievous injuries have been reported due to the poor condition of the road. The public has also raised its voice many times for the reconstruction of the road, but the administration is paying no attention�, said Simul Sarkar, a social activist.

�This is the main road that connects the district headquarters with the rest of the world. Most of the offices, court and the most importantly the Dhubri Civil Hospital, are connected through this road mainly, with the rest of the district, but due to its poor state the problems are immense�, said Sarkar, adding that due to the poor condition of the GTB Road, the overall development of the district is also at stake.
