The Swat district administration has cleared the road by removing the speed-breakers after a user of social networking site Facebook drew the attention of illegal speed breakers in the Sangota area of Tehsil Babuzai here on Tuesday. With the active role of Deputy Commissioner Junaid Khan on the social networking website Facebook, the people have come in direct contact with him to solve their problems and various issues are being pointed out by the youth through pictures and videos. A Facebook user pointed out illegal speed breakers set up on Sangota Road, causing traffic problems and inconvenience to commuters.

The user wrote in his complaint that the new road, which was recently constructed by the provincial government, was not only deteriorating due to the installation of speed breakers but also causing severe inconvenience to the commuters. To address the grievance, Deputy Commissioner Junaid Khan took immediate action and issued orders to the concerned authorities as a result of whom the speed breakers have been removed and the road has been cleared.
