Dilapidated condition of Sihala Road irks motorists and AJK travelers

Islamabad : Sihala Road, connecting the sensitive Kahuta, has been in a dilapidated condition for more than three years.

The section of the road passing through the Model Town Humak needs repair as whenever it rains it becomes impossible for motorists to pass through it. ‘The News’ learnt that dozens of serious accident occurred on the road because of its dilapidated condition in which many precious lives were lost. 

Sihala Road was constructed in the 1970s and its carpeting was done on the directives of Dr. Abdul Qadeer Khan.

The single track dilapidated road is the only source for all kinds of traffic to approach the Model Town Humak, Sihala, Kahuta and the Azad Jammu and Kashmir. Motorists are facing great difficulties in driving their vehicles on the road. A major portion of Sihala Road, between Humak village and Model Town Humak, remains inundated in sewage.

Heavy traffic plies on Sihala Road because of industrial area. There are more than 100 big and small industrial units along the road. 

Talking to ‘The News,’ motorists and residents of the Model Town Humak, said that they have submitted several applications with the Capital Development Authority (CDA) for repair and renovation of the road, but all in vain. The heavy traffic, including 20-wheelers, trucks and public transport, passes through the road.

Model Town Mohallah Committee General Secretary Malik Muhammad Nasir said that the concerned department and elected members are not taking interest in the development of the locality. “We are facing great difficulties due to dilapidated condition of Sihala Road.”

When ‘The News’ contacted CDA spokesman Malik Muhammad Saleem, he said that they would start repair work on Sihala Road soon. He admitted that Sihala Road is a busy road and used for heavy traffic
