Narwal yard awaits repairs since last 3 decades
Roads turn into nullahs, as culvert completely chocked

Early Times Report
Jammu, July 15: The Narwal transport yard has been awaiting repairs and construction of roads and drains for the last over three decades, due to which the roads have virtually turned into drains, which flooded during every rains as the drain has been chocked completely.
The shopkeepers of Narwal yard number 6, Rashpal Singh, Mulakh raj, Mohammad Yasin, Hamid Shah, Boby Kumar, Kuldeep Balgotra, Mohinder Singh, Mast Ram, Sumit Kumar, Ashwani Kumar, Sunny Kumar, Shadi Lal informed Early Times that the transport yard was shifted to Narwal, somewhere in the year 1991-92.
"During that time the roads and drains were in good shape but with each passing year, the condition of roads and drains started turning pathetic which needed minor repairs but none of the politician paid any attention to the area", the shopkeepers said, adding that the situation has reached to such a serious proportion that whenever there was rains, the roads got flooded as the drain has been blocked inside a culvert.
They further said that a culvert was constructed behind Plot number 14-15, which has been choked due to accumulation of silt and garbage. "Beneath the culvert the depth of nullah is nearly five to six feet but some PHE supply pipes intersect the nullah beneath the culvert and the garbage usually caught hold of the pipes and choked the drain, due to which the water overflowed from the drain to the road, turning it into a drain itself", the residents said, adding that even the concerned authorities didn't de-silt the drain and shopkeepers used to spend money from their own pocket to de-silt it from peak ends.
The shopkeepers complained that the water from the national highway as well as other areas flowed towards the area and even some shopkeepers dumped their waste into the nullah, further deteriorating the problem. "During rains the roads are such so much flooding that it is impossible to cross the same as even stones and boulders came flowing with water", they said.
The shopkeepers further informed that due to first few rains of rainy season, a portion of bank has caved in from an electric pole. "It may turn into a catastrophe as the electric pole may fell down anytime and if the power supply will be on, it can create havoc", they apprehended.
Criticizing the successive politicians, the shopkeepers said that they were only bothered about their votes and donations from the shopkeepers but when it came to work for the area, they paid no heed. "The government has been earning money from the Narwal yard by collecting various types of fee from the shopkeepers but put onus on other department for repairs of drains and roads in the area", they said.
