Administrator of Chattogram City Corporation (CCC) Khorshed Alam Sujon has said patchwork activities are being carried out through nine divisions of CCC to repair roads in the port city, says a press release on Wednesday.
CCC administrator said patchwork activities are underway at Fakirhat, Kala Miyabazar, Bahaddarhat Flyover, FIDC Road, Saltgola Crossing, Bandar Custom and Zakir Hossain Road in the city.
Sujan added that the mixer made of sand, stone chips and bitumen for
road repair work could not be kept for more than 8 hours. It loses its usefulness when the specified time is exceeded. Considering this fact, it is not possible to make more mixture in the rainy season.
He added that although the excess stockpiled mixture was hastily used for road repairs, its durability is very low and repairs are likely to return to their previous state, CCC wasted a huge amount of money and labor. Even then, patchwork activities are being carried out by the CCC to provide relief to the people.
The CCC administrator regretted that the ongoing repair and renovation work through the patchwork was delayed due to rains and asked the city dwellers to be patient for the time being.
