IJP Road is the busiest road and almost 40-50% of the road is in dilapidated condition due to heavy traffic. The road was originally constructed in 2004-06 with design axel load of flexible pavement as 8.2 tons. But in 2007 when all the heavy traffic was diverted to IJP road the condition of the road became miserable mostly because most of the heavy traffic consisted of vehicles having 25 tons axel load.
