SIRAHA, July 19: Poor road construction and blacktopping are rampant across the country. The blacktopped layer giving in within few days is a common scene in towns and villages. Concerned authorities do not seem to care or do anything to stop the contractors from delivering such poor roads. However, in a rare incident, locals of Golbazar of Siraha district have brought an ongoing road blacktopping to a halt citing its poor construction quality.
