The miserable state of the Multan-Vehari road, stretching for over 100 kilometers, has been a growing cause for concern among thousands of commuters. This vital artery, once a lifeline for countless residents in the region, now stands as a symbol of neglect and endangers the lives of those travelling along it. Citizens’ pleas for attention, in the face of rising crime and accidents, remain unanswered.
The road, connecting Multan to Vehari via various towns including Thingi, Garha Mor, Tibba Sultan Pur, Chowk Matela, Pul 14, and Makhdoom Rashed, serves as a critical transit route for a vast number of people who rely on it daily, said a citizen.
“Potholes, craters and uneven surfaces plague the entire road, transforming it into a perilous pathway fraught with accidents and crime”, he expressed. Despite countless promises made in annual budgets, the authorities concerned have yet to take substantive steps to address the condition of Multan-Vehari Road.
These unfulfilled commitments have left the road in an ever-worsening condition.
