Posh Golf Course Road a death trap, claim residents

Though the elite area of Gurugram, the Golf Course Road is currently undergoing several development changes along the upmarket area in the city, but the residents of the area seem to remain unhappy.

The Golf Course Road marked with houses and offices, are posing threats to the pedestrians.

The residents have voiced their concerns over the lack facilities for pedestrians on the busy stretch that will soon become signal free.

Also, they have complained about the lack of footpaths, footbridges and lack of traffic management.

The residents claimed that the heavy vehicles on the roads endanger their lives because they not only are they driven at a high speed but also the drivers flout various traffic rules.

"Although there are several developments taking place in the area but the pedestrians are being ignored. Now, there are various residencies and offices that are situated along the Golf Course road. But, with the absence of basic facilities like footpaths and footbridges, all the pedestrians are vulnerable to accidents," said Rupesh Bhargava resident of Sector 56.

He also stated that the traffic management in Gurugram is extremely poor and many do not follow the rules.

"This makes both the residents and office goers equally unsafe. The concerned authorities should make proper arrangements for the safety of the people as it is extremely precarious to cross the road," added Bhargava.

Lack of proper street lighting, proper road markings and poor construction norms followed by agencies makes Golf course road precarious for all, echoed the Golf Course Road residents.

Prominent developmental projects like extension of Rapid metro, construction of underpasses and widening of roads is taking place in the area that is considered to have one of the high priced properties not only in Gurugram but also in India.

"The present situation at the Golf Course road poses a threat to not only pedestrians but also commuters. The roads are filled with construction material and also it lacks the presence of any police staff. It has become a dead trap," said Rashmi Khosla, resident of DLF Phase-I.
