Hamidia Road, which passes near Bhopal Railway Station and Bus Stand, on which the CM had expressed his displeasure last year after seeing the potholes, still has potholes. This is the first main road of the city of 6.7 km from Pul Bogda to Shahjahanabad police station. It was built five years ago with a budget of Rs 22 crore. But right now there are potholes at many places including Alpana Talkies, Bharat Talkies and Bhopal Talkies.

Similarly, the condition of JK Road, the main road of BHEL area built by spending Rs 20 crore, is such that it has become difficult to pass through it. The condition of almost all the main roads of the city is like this. More than Rs 100 crore is spent every year on repairing these roads made of asphalt, yet people are worried. Experts say that if these roads are made of cement then maintenance would not have to be done every time.
