Mangaluru: If you look at some of the new side roads concreted lately by the MCC, you will be surprised to see that many of them are only concreted half the way-for example the Kodialguthu Rd, Inner Road near Padua High School, and many others- and to add to these lists- there is one more road that is only concreted the half way-namely the Don Bosco Cross Rd. And it looks like the portion of this road where it is concreted has businesses of builders, rich entrepreneurs and posh residences. What’s going on?
While the newly concrete part of the road looks good, the remaining portion of the road is in shambles, with garbage scattered on the footpath, dilapidated pedestrian walk-way, uncompleted drainage work posing danger to motorists and pedestrians etc etc. It doesn’t make any sense, why would anybody concrete half of the road, and leave the other half in disaster. That’s what happens when the work is assigned to a local contractor- so that part of the allotted money for the road construction can be shared by the MCC officials, ward corporator and other political netas.
Why can’t the district administration give road work to bigger companies like L&T or any other renowned construction company who have sophisticated technology and new machinery, and they would not pay any bribes to our corrupt city officials. But the problem is that MCC officials won’t assign the work to outside the city companies, fearing that they would not make extra bucks.So unfortunately that would be the reality of all roads in Kudla- half done and incomplete?
