COIMBATORE: The Corporation should create a separate department or team to find whether roads that are dug up for various works are being repaired and tarred properly in time, people demanded at an interaction session on Friday.

The Corporation’s prior permission and payment of repair charges is mandatory to dig roads, but complaints are increasing about roads lying unrepaired for months after being dug up for works like laying of cables by private companies.

“At Vadavalli Junction, a road was dug to lay cable a few months back. But it has not been repaired. Appeals made to repair it has fallen on deaf ears,” said Raj Kumar, a resident of the area. City Engineer Natraj said, the relaying of roads gets delayed due to compaction. Directions will be issued to zonal engineers to repair them at the earliest.

Natraj said, if compaction takes time and such roads remain unrepaired for months, people can complain to him and he will take steps. Mayor P Rajkumar said, “I have not come across such complaints as of now. However, we will do the needful.”
