Finally Nagoa road repaired 'properly' says local MLA

23 Aug 2019 06:19 PM

A small stretch of road between 20 to 50 meters in Nagoa had become a death trap for commuters. It was like a roller coaster ride for people passing that side. This road was done up again and again. But the work deteriorated a short time after repairs. Recently too repair work was taken up. But it was not before the monsoons but during the monsoon. Which created more problems for the locals and commuters. This created a huge mess and had to be stopped due to the heavy shower. But now on Friday, interlocking pavers have been installed on the road to curb the pothole menace.

Locals are asking why the authorities wait for the monsoon to repair the roads? Or do rains wake them up? This is a stretch that is used by all to commute from Calangute to Mapusa by the Nagoa Grande Resort way.

Time and again this road stretch has been repaired, but was back to a mess. Crossing 20 to 50 meters stretch would take near 10 to 15 minutes, and if traffic congestion waiting in the queue was something that was common.

Local MLA Michael Lobo himself agreed that though he was the MLA of the area for nearly 8 years, and this road was repaired again and again. But says that this time it is being done properly.
