Thubarahalli residents take to streets over poor road condition

The residents of the areas in the vicinity of Thubarahalli near Marathahalli formed a human chain on Saturday, to draw the attention of civic authorities towards pathetic plight of roads in their locality.

Wearing surgical masks to highlight pollution and health issues they face on a daily basis due to bad roads, the volunteers formed the human chain that later extended to Vibgyor Road and Thubarahalli Extended Road.

Raghukumar Paramparampath, a resident of Vibgyor Road said, “The  Vibgyor Road, Thubarahalli Extended Road and Munnekolala Road, need a makeover immediately as residents and motorists suffer the most. Vibgyor Road and Thubarahalli Extended Road are mud roads and have not been tarred till date. To make things worse, the access road to Thubarahalli Extended Road is just about eight-foot wide.” Sudarshan R, a resident of Thubarahalli Village Road, said, “There are 1,200 houses on this stretch but we are not getting potable water ever since the road was developed. There is no sewerage facility as well.” He said repeated representations to the Palike had not evoked any response.

Residents added that more than 150 school buses ply on the Vibgyor Road other than hundreds of motorists. “The residents, especially children and senior citizens, are exposed to high levels of dust and air pollution, particularly during summer, that leave them vulnerable to multiple health hazards”  added Paramparampath.
