Congested main road needs to be repaired

SARGODHA: The only main road linking Sargodha and Salem Motorway Exchange has become dangerous and there have been several accidents as light and heavy traffic as well as donkey carts and motorbikes have made it over-crowded.

Commuters have abandoned this road near Gillwala railway crossing due to overflowing sewerage. This area is also considered a hub of PML-N and former PML-N MPA Rizwan Gill belonged to the same area.

But the road near railway crossing had neither been repaired nor any attempt was ever made to make it accessible to traffic. Motorists of both light and heavy vehicles were forced to use the bypass road and the one on canal bank, which is being damaged.

Locals demanded the chief minister take notice of the deteriorating road and order its repair besides maintenance of the sewerage system.
