We have erected warning signal and the said area was fenced but no one listen to the warning and continue to cross the said culvert which is not at all in the interest of the public.

Commuters and vehicle owners should not use the said road as it is not suitable for use at present in rainy season. He said.

He further said that several correspondence have been made previously to the capital district administration and disaster management for grant of fund for restoration of the said critical point near ESS Sector which connect Raj Bhawan, Circuit House, Ganga via Capital SP Office which is at the verge of collapse, most of the portion of the road have been washed away by torrential rain and the said culvert is hanging like a cliff,  at present it is unsafe and was close after warning signal was erected at both end of the culvert and the area was fenced for safety measures.

Gunkap said precautionary measure need to be taken in view of safety and security of the commuters and appeal the commuters not to use the said raid.

State government have approved some fund and tender process will immediately started in view of the urgency and nature of work for public importance after election process is completed and work will be started as soon as the tender process is completed. Gunkap added.
