There’s A Ghost Road On Yamuna River And Authorities Are Baffled!

As if it wasn’t enough, there’s a new road in town and we’re absolutely baffled on how it came to be! Stretching across the river from the bank to a small island, the road is as good as a ghost road with authorities claiming it wasn’t built by them or anyone known.

30 Second Window:

  • The road has been built between Yamuna Bank and Indraprastha Metro stations as a kuccha road. It is nearly 100 metres long and 3 metres wide and built with concrete debris, soil and waste material.
  • Many ecologists believe that the road is already damaging the water flow! In fact, this has already affected every natural activity in the river bed.
  • From silt transportation to groundwater recharge and revival of subsoil bacteria, everything has and will be drastically affected!
  • The road is, however, regularly used by villagers and cattle grazers to take their animals to a river island in the middle for grazing.
  • Usually, a river erodes one bank and deposits the silt on the other bank. It could be naturally built by erosion.
