Shirva, 12 August 2012: The State Highway in Shirva Grama on route Shirva – Panjimar – Bantakal – Katpadi has formed into lake at an area called Palke every year during the rainy season. Complaints were given to the Lokopayogi department, to the people’s representatives and to the Grama Panchayath by the local people, but there is no use. Minor patch work repairs were done, but there has been no repair of the drain gutter.


Lokopayogi department has stocked pipes and other materials for the repairs in last April, but the construction work was never done. The drain gutter has gone completely with ponds all over. There are frequent incidents of two wheelers and rickshaws falling into the ponds repeatedly.


This is the main road linking Belman to Katpadi, so the heavy trucks coming from Karkala Nitte, the trucks carrying construction materials to the Padoor crude oil storage project are passing through this road, hence unable to bear the load the drain gutter has collapsed completely. Even when the slight rain comes this area gets filled with rain water making it a adventure to pass through this road.

When the vehicles passing through the muddy water gets sprayed to people on either side of the roads who has to go through the sufferings of hell. The local people have urged the members of Grama Panchayath, Taluk Panchayath and Jilla Panchayath to take initiative to carry out the construction work using the materials already in stock, so that this problem can be resolved.
