The residents of South City 1, Gurgaon, have decided to take up the responsibility of laying the road themselves. The reason for taking up this task, which should actually have been taken up by the civic body and developers, is the pure ignorance regarding the pleas by the residents for road construction in South City, Gurugram
The residents of South City 1 of blocks A,I,J and N have collected money among themselves and have hired a contractor. The work for the road will start by 15th March in full swing.
Unitech, their developer, has been consulted many times by the residents for more than two years in regards with construction of the road in South City, Gurgaon. But the developer showed no interest saying that the dues have to be cleared before any developmental work.
The areas which are right now maintained under the developers will be taken over by the
Municipal Corporation of Gurgaon (MCG). The initial phase of this takeover has already been done in February 2016 after which DLF phases 1-3, Palam Vihar, Sushant Lok-1 have come under the power of MCG. The completion of this take over has not been done yet because of the pending legal changes to the Act.
The connecting roads within the township are also in a lousy condition since long, making it troublesome for the residents to even commute within the township.
MCG (Municipal Corporation of Gurugram) had earlier claimed to take up the task of development in the residential societies saying that they would do it even if the takeover didn’t take place in one go.
But after the estimates of road repair were made and drafted, the commissioner later came out saying that it would not be possible to take up this development work unless they completed the legal process of taking over.
