Pampore: The residents of Pampore in South Kashmir’s Pulwama district have demanded car parking facility for Sub District hospital (SDH) Pampore.
The locals informed that they have been pleading with authorities for providing a parking facility for Sub district hospital (SDH) Pampore to avoid congestion on the road.
“The congestion along approach road to SDH Pampore hampers smooth movement of trauma cases,” requesting authorities for seeking a solution to this problem.
The locals informed Kashmir Reader that SDH Pampore is situated near Srinagar-Jammu highway and admits trauma patients who get injured in various road accidents.
Mohammad Yousuf Malik, a Civil society member from Pampore told Kashmir Reader that vehicles that lead to different institutions along SDH are parked on the road in front of the hospital causing hindrance in shifting patients to hospital.
All vehicles that lead to block office, boys higher secondary school, fire and emergency station, police station, water worker station and SDH are parked on the road.
” The occupation of road in front of the hospital causes trouble in shifting critical patients to sub district hospital,” he said, adding that they had taken up this matter with former Deputy Commissioner’s of Pulwama and proposed them for transferring 5 kanals of land from Rural Development department (RDD) to Sub district hospital Pampore which would be used for car parking.
” The proposal was accepted in the board meeting of Pulwama but what happened to the file afterwards, we don’t know,” Malik said, pleading authorities for reconsidering their long pending demand.
” Providing car parking facility is a long pending demand for Sub district hospital, the approach road to SDH Pampore always remains occupied with parked vehicles,
The congestion created hurdles for ambulances to pass through,” Dr Mohammad Ashraf, RMO, SDH Pampore told Kashmir Reader.
He requested authorities for developing car parking facility for SDH Pampore to that passage of patients is eased out.
