Foreshore Shalimar Link Road In Shambles


Srinagar- The link road between Foreshore and Shalimar is in shambles. The road connects Foreshore road with the city outskirts. Commuters have long complained of bumpy rides yet authorities have failed to get the road blacktopped.

Srinagar is a city with natural beauty. This city has a lot to offer. Dal Lake, beautiful mountains and the mighty Chinars. Roads in Srinagar should complement the beauty in our city. But to our disappointment, city roads are in shambles. The Shalimar-Foreshore link route is just stigmatizing the beauty and giving back aches.

The road is full of potholes and travelling on this road in winter months has been very difficult. This road has not been macadamized in the last few years. The authorities are developing a park in the nearby area but neglecting this vital road for reasons better known to them. I am a university student and have to commute daily. For travelling a distance of few minutes we have to spend half an hour.

The road holds a special significance from a touristic perspective. The locality hosts Shalimar garden which attracts a large number of tourists. Apart from causing problems for local commuters, it is maligning the image of Kashmir as a top tourist destination. The road is in the dilapidated condition since many years. Instead of making it an Asphalt road, government should consider making it a cement concrete road.

Development of the Shalimar canal connecting Shalimar garden and Foreshore road has been taken under Srinagar Smart city as one of the key Tourism Development Projects. In addition to macadamization, the entire canal will be developed on modern lines with bridges and pathways to beautify the entire stretch. It is a big project and tenders have been floated in this regard.
