GUWAHATI, Nov 23 � Urging the authorities to take up road reconstruction work in Guwahati in a scientific manner, the Save Guwahati Build Guwahati (SGBG) on Saturday expressed dissatisfaction over the ongoing construction work without maintaining the road level.
In a statement here, the NGO pointed out that the height of many roads in Guwahati are rising above the plinth level of the houses located on the roadsides. �Many old localities of the city are now below the road level and are facing several problems, including waterlogging. The roads must be constructed after proper digging,� added the statement.
In 2008, the SGBG had submitted a memorandum to the PWD wherein it appealed to the authorities not to increase the road level further. �The government departments concerned must follow the rules laid down for maintaining the road level,� added the statement.
