Ganderbal, Apr 14: The residents of several areas of this central Kashmir’s Ganderbal district have complained of suffering from respiratory issues due to the dust emanating from the road.
The people from Gagangeer, Sonamarg and Kullan areas told Rising Kashmir that the road from the Kullan to Sonamarg remains full of dust. They said the dust emanating from the vehicles passing through the busy Srinagar-Leh highway leave commuters gasping for breath.
Last year, a water tanker from APCO Construction Company was provided for throwing water on the road all day, but this year it is not seen anywhere, the locals said.
The company has been constructing the Srinagar-Leh highway from Shutkadi to Main Chowk Sonamarg and it is one of the reasons for dusty roads.
Another local said that due to the bad condition of roads from Gund to Sonamarg, potholes and volumes of dust have increased manifold. A number of people complained of respiratory problems due to the dust.
