CHITRAL, October 14: Residents of Karimabad area in Chitral district say they often faced accidents due to poor condition of the road in their area.
The residents told TNN that the road was rough and narrow and that several vehicles have fallen into the river because the road does not have fences, nor safety wall.
They say that because of the poor road, they cannot rush their patients to hospitals on time and that the drivers of the area also have problems while transporting vegetables to the markets. They have demanded the government construct the road properly.
“Fruit including oranges, walnuts, etc cannot be transported to markets, we appeal the government to construct and widen this road,” said an area resident.
A woman from the area said, “Often the roads are blocked for several months due to snowfall in Chitral and we face a host of problems, particularly in emergency situations.”
