Storm Drains Absent in Jalandhar

Monsoon has set in 15 days early. While bountiful rains facilitate paddy planting in rural areas but for urban Jalandhar it means a nightmare .

It is the same story every year . With the arrival of the Monsoon , large parts of Jalandhar get waterlogged creating immense problems for both pedestrians and motorists. This is primarily because there are not any proper storm drains for the rain water to flow out . Poor material is used for road construction . Instead of bitumen , city roads should be built with cement which further strengthens when it comes in to contact with water.

The problem is particularly acute in localities of Bus stand , District Administrative Complex , Police Lines , Niku Park , Ranjit Nagar ,Rama Mandi , Basti Gujan, Nakodar Road , Kapurthala Road , Ladowali Road ,and Domoria Pull.15-06-08_1200 15-06-08_1158 15-06-08_1217
