(KampalaSDN)Hargaisa it’s Capital of Somaliland or it’s screen which shows the real picture in the hole country before the elected local government council in hargaisa we can say there is no institution to be busy civil service or hand over within residential to provided good service, within their city roads,so
somalilnad’s roads especially those in Hargaisa are falling apart. The rains have made the bad situation worse. Potholes which were small have instantly become wide and deep. Some roads have what can be termed as galleys because big chunks of road surfaces have been washed off creating big water logged ponds in the middle of the roads. Traffic jams have increased especially during peak hours because vehicles have to slow down as the approach such spots. Elected Moyer in Hargaisa (EMH) is overwhelmed by the magnitude of the problem as the routine maintenance works they had started on seems to have come to a naught. The patch work they had done on some roads has not been spared either. The heavy rains that Hargaisa has experienced have even left meteorology officials guessing and making predictions that have left the publish wondering whether to believe weather forecasts.
Moyer jiciir had considered a lot of time to resolve through this problem in Hargaisa roads worst . its quite difficult create a new building roads, Bridges’ and also to maintaining the lost roads in Hargaisa but Moyer of Hargaisa has been decided throughout this worse situation. As a experts he discovered the best way to maintenances and build Somaliland roads specially those in Hargaisa and also to create new roads, Bridge, in every district their in Hargaisa. before the elected local government council in hargaisa we can say there is no any institution to be busy civil service or hand over within residential to provided good service, we cannot refuse the level of economic situation in our country because off we have not sufficient fund to repaired or build public infrastructure, other hand Local government Administrations holding / having discussion possibility of building and maintaining our Hargaisa city roads,Bridge then they are
Share anyone who has stockholders in this issue for instant, traditional leadership, civil society, experts, intellectual, central government and also Un agency involve in this issue,
The public seems to have resigned to fate as far as bad roads Hargaisa are concerned because they have become the norm. The worst case scenario of a typical road in dire disrepair can be found on XERO AWR road after JIGJIGA YAR junction lights on the corner near JANO GAABAN FUEL station up to Maansoor Hotel. On many occasions traffic has had to be diverted from this vital road because of the poor condition it is in. I was remembered when I was went in my university I used that road its very hard to pass it. Trucks that deliver goods to nearby warehouses have to negotiate through an almost impassable road to access their businesses. Small cars have to literally move on their “bellies on this particular section”. The traffic police who usually control traffic at the nearby Spear Motors junction normally look on helplessly as jam builds up. This is just one case of the many problematic spots on our city roads.
Our roads will continue to deteriorate unless we embrace modern urbanization planning practices. The time of having narrow roads is long gone. Our road designers need to come to terms with this fact. As the city expands, so should the roads. This goes hand in hand with physical planning. Again, local government council in Hargaisa together with the district authorities that share a boarder with Hargaisa need to encourage commercial high-rise residential buildings to maximize space rather than the current craze of small individual housing units that are untenable.
Hargaisa has too many roads to develop simply because local Government and residents are building to gather everywhere. According to Moyer of Hargaisa Eng. Hussien M. Jiciir are local government already has been created sixty eight 68 roads and Ten 10 Bridges, and financially a contributed residential and local government in Hargaisa,
Local government has paid it 60% of cost any road and other balance 40% were contributed residential around that village so we can say Moyer of hargaisa has-been processed any way to access success in hargaisa roads. Minimum sixty Seven (67) roads are already developed or completed different district in Hargaisa for instant (1) Ahmed Dhagah (2) Ibrahin Koodbuur ( 3) Mohamud Haybe (4) 26Juun (5) Gacan LIbaah that is all Hargaisa boarder district authorities and also some roads still continue new roads and others to repaired or maintained its big deal to appreciate what he done Eng Hussien M. JIciir during life time.
Any how Each person who builds a small personal residential house on a small piece of land expects to have private access in form of a road. Even provision of other services like water and electricity is quite difficult because of the small residential units that utility companies have to serve.
The other challenge are face is related society does not understand meaning of Urbanization development because of they could not use drainages to put waste particular but in our society mostly should use main roads every waste products. environmental problem that does not compliment bituminized road resilience. Somaliland has mountains and very large Hill which cannot support easy building road pavement. Although Somaliland has one of the best climatic conditions in the world that favours visitors and tourism, our soils are the best when it comes to road development. The typical conditions do not favour permanent pavement strength and durability. Even where road bases and sub grades have been improved upon, they are continually eroded beginning from the sides of the road.
It is true that our road performance is structurally deficient but it is also true that our physical planners and road designers are hiding behind the excuse that wide roads are expensive to build. The narrow roads that characterize our fast expanding city can never be reinforced enough for the heavy rains that Somaliland normally receives. Even though it is cheaper to construct the narrow roads in the short run, they are very expensive to maintain, at least to keep them pothole-free. The proposal by cabinet to extend the boundaries of Hargaisa to take over Mohamed Mooge, and Ibrahim Koodboor districts was commendable in my view and should therefore be vigorously pursued. Hargaisa is too crowded to have broad better roads.
