The residents joined hands to repair the 2 km stretch of the road from Chikli to Hariharpur passing through the village. The road has been lying in a dilapidated state and the potholes on it had made commuting a risky affair. The villagers urged the block officials to do the needful but their appeal went unheeded. They then hired a tractor and a JCB to repair the road.

Sidheswar Naik, a villager said there was no point waiting any further for response from the authorities concerned on the matter. Meanwhile, Junagarh BDO Dularam Marandi said a proposal has been sent to the Rural Development department to construct another road to the village under Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojana.
