Res­i­dents com­plain about un­us­able roads in Avadi

Jeeva Na­gar and Sankar Na­gar the worst hit

The Hindu - - CHENNAI - R. Srikanth

Most of the roads in Jeeva Na­gar and Sankar Na­gar in Avadi are just mud and wa­ter tracks. Many of them are un­mo­torable. And when rain­wa­ter mixes with sewage, res­i­dents can­not even walk on them.

Jeeva Na­gar and Sankar Na­gar are just a few me­tres from the Avadi Mu­nic­i­pal­ity of­fice.

While the main thor­ough­fares are paved with con­crete, the side streets are in a woe­ful state.

Left in the lurch

S. Ramesh, a res­i­dent of Jeeva Na­gar, said nei­ther the mu­nic­i­pal author­i­ties nor the elected rep­re­sen­ta­tives have both­ered to visit the streets or taken steps to fill the roads with con­struc­tion de­bris.

Adding to the woes of res­i­dents is the drain­ing of waste wa­ter from a few houses into the in­com­plete sewage net­work, re­sult­ing in sev­eral man­holes over­flow­ing with sewage, pos­ing a health haz­ard to the res­i­dents of Jeeva Na­gar and Sankar Na­gar.

T. Mo­hammed, a res­i­dent of Sankar Na­gar, said sev­eral res­i­dents in their lo­cal­ity had il­le­gally con­nected their drainage to the sewage net­work and the mu­nic­i­pal author­i­ties re­main blind to this prob­lem.
