PULWAMA — Concerned residents of Gouricheck Mohalla in Arihal, Pulwama, are intensifying their calls for the macadamization of a crucial inner link road connecting their area to the Arihal market. This thoroughfare serves as a lifeline for both local communities and businesses, facilitating the transportation of goods and produce.

The unpaved state of the road poses significant challenges, particularly during harsh winter conditions, making travel arduous for residents and hindering economic activities. This sentiment was echoed by Showkat Ahmad Dar, a resident of Gouricheck Mohalla, who highlighted the road’s dilapidated condition and its adverse impact on daily life.

Despite previous appeals to authorities, including assurances from the Deputy Commissioner’s office in Pulwama, action has been limited. Last year, only preliminary non-macadam work was initiated, leaving the main issue unresolved.

According to Dar, students and elderly individuals are among the most affected, facing difficulties commuting to school and hospitals, respectively. Their plea to the Deputy Commissioner of Pulwama is to intervene and expedite the macadamization process.

Irshad Farooq, Lumbardar of Arihal, emphasized the community’s urgent need for a properly constructed road, citing its vital role in ensuring smooth connectivity to neighbouring areas, particularly the Industrial Growth Centre (IGC) Lassipora.
