The service road from KDA roundabout to the stop of Matric board office is in a dreadful state. It is completely broken which makes driving virtually impossible. I would also like to add that this very road is an important route as it passes along a hospital clinic, two schools, a university, restaurants, and petrol & CNG stations. The road is in the same state for over two years. It is a great nuisance for traffic and even pedestrians. I request the concerned authorities to do the needful in this regard.
