“With the material meant for construction piled up on the roadside, the parking space has been reduced and the location has become a place of regular traffic jams during the peak hours,” he lamented. The GHMC officials have blamed the delay on contractor, as work was started several days ago but still remains pending. Other works of estimated Rs 30 lakhs near Falaknuma are pending for the past three months.
