Roads within city limits are narrow as compared to highways networks. To add to this, increase in number of vehicles on the roads have led to overcrowding many places in the country. As a result of digging up roads, there have been numerous blockages at key points within city limits causing untold suffering for people.
It should be noted that digging of roads is not a regular activity and amends need to be made so as to organize these processes in a systematic manner. Communication needs to be beefed up so as to increase transparency between departments responsible for these activities.

During such times civic departments should co-ordinate and decide on timings for these projects way before hand. This will help lower traffic snarls during peak hours and will result in timely completion of projects taken up the municipal bodies.
