GOACAN writes to North Goa Collector regarding current state of roads in Panaji

Panaji, Feb 12 (UNI) The Goa Civic and Consumer Action Network (GOACAN) has written to North Goa Collector conveying concern expressed by people on the current state of roads in the capital city and demanded to convene an urgent meeting of the agencies concerned to draw up a permanent plan of action to rectify the situation.
In a representation given to the Collector, copies of which were shared with media, GOACAN Co-ordinator Roland Martins has said, ''We from GOACAN wish to place before you the concerns expressed by various consumers especially women and senior citizens on the current state of the roads in different parts of the City of Panaji. As we have just completed the observation of the 30th National Road Safety Week we are concerned for the safety of the pedestrians, riders and drivers as the present condition of the roads in Campal, St Inez and Altinho pose a threat of accidents.''
''No display board has been placed at any of the sites where digging for laying of cables is being undertaken which gives the Name of the Agency authorizing the work, the Name of the Contractor undertaking the work, the period of time by which the work will be completed and the Mobile No. for purpose of contact in case of Emergency. No safety barricades have been placed at the site of digging nor any warning lights at night have been fixed there by putting the pedestrian, rider and driver at risk. At places where the digging is completed and the road trenches packed up with soil again there are no signages. In fact the loose soil scattered on the road poses a threat to the road users as they can slip as well. At places where the road trenches have been packed and a layer of tar laid, the road stretch has become uneven, thereby posing a threat to the road users,'' he said.
He has urged the Collector to issue necessary directions immediately to the concerned agencies like the Public Works Department (PWD) and the Corporation of the City of Panaji (CCP) so that action be taken to remedy the situation.
''We also request you to convene an urgent meeting of the agencies concerned to draw up a permanent plan of action so that this situation can be rectified and these roads be brought back to their original state in a time bound manner and also to see that this situation may not repeat itself in the future,'' he said.
