Most of the roads in the town have remained in dilapidated condition for the last few months, causing sufferings to the commuters.
Offices of the deputy commissioner, superindent of police, civil surgeon, judge court, judicial magistrate court, district council (zila parishad), district election office and regional passport office are situated in the area. The Zila Shishu Academy and Police Lines High School are also in the area.
During a recent visit, this correspondent saw that the roads from District Gate to Police Lines, Police Lines to Shishu Academy, and Deputy Commissioner's office to Superindent of Police's office, District Council (zila parishad) to Law Clerks Office and Advocate Bar Association to Helipad remained in bad state.
Numerous potholes have been created on most of the roads while water remains stagnant on these as there is no water drainage system, causing problems both for the people and vehicles.
A large pothole was also seen on the road behind the SP office.
Rain water remains stagnant on the road north of the police superindent's office near the Police Lines High School and on the road at the north of the Judicial Magistrate's Court building due to lack of proper drainage system.
Water remains stagnant in the potholes on the road from Helipad area to the Police Lines in slight rain, creating problems in moving on the road with vehicles, said auto rickshaw driver Rafiqul Islam.
Minor accidents often happen on the damaged roads almost every day, said Sayid Miah, a tea stall owner in the area.
The roads turn almost impossible for movement of vehicles after heavy rain, said Saiful Islam in nearby Madrasa Intersection area.
