The Dabolim Block Congress Committee submitted a memorandum to the deputy collector demanding repairs and maintenance of the Air Vice Marshal Pinto road between the airport and Chicalim. 
A delegation comprising Dabolim Congress Committee members Francisco Nunes, Gluck D’Souza, Caciano Pereira and Youth President Mahesh Bhandari drew attention to the sorry state of the Air Vice Marshal Pinto road, which has witnessed several potholes, water-logging and broken street lights, endangering motorists along the route. 
The delegation also submitted some proposals and solutions to take care of this busy road. 
The proposal suggested shifting of the Bus Shelter near the Rajhauns Theatre Gate to stop traffic jam from the airport side, while also demanding that No-Parking signboards affixed by Indian Navy on their compound wall be verified by the South Goa Collector’s office.  
They also proposed that damaged street lights near Nofra Gate, Sea Scan Academy and ICICI Bank be replaced by the electricity department, 
The Dabolim Congress Committee also requested that trucks, tankers and container vehicles parked by the roadside in the morning and allowed to enter the city at specified times may be directed to be parked along the BITS Pilani road, to clear traffic problems along the Airport-Chicalim road.  
A demand was also made to de-silt the existing storm water drain to prevent waterlogging on the main road, while also directing telecom companies to repair their chambers and other cable pipes jutting out of the road.  
The Dabolim Congress Committee also suggested that the PWD be directed to immediately paint the zebra crossing and speed breakers, while the Navy’s contractor, who had dug a trench on the main road to lay underground electrical cable, be directed to repair the road immediately.
