Sewage over­flows left unat­tended

Deccan Chronicle - - City - DC COR­RE­SPON­DENT

Res­i­dents at sev­eral lo­ca­tions in the city have been com­plain­ing about drainage over­flow.

They said that even though com­plaints had been lodged man­u­ally as well as on so­cial me­dia, the of­fi­cials had not fixed the prob­lem but had marked it as solved in the records.

Mr B. Srini­vas Reddy, a techie who reg­u­larly takes the road from Cy­ber Tow­ers, said, “Sew­er­age wa­ter has been flow­ing onto the road for the past month and no­body has paid any heed to our re­quest.

The wa­ter pipe­line has been fixed, but the drainage pipe­line con­tin­ues to over­flow, caus­ing wa­ter to stag­nate in this prime lo­ca­tion.”

Sev­eral techies from Gachi­bowli use this road to reach their work­place ev­ery day and on week­days, traf­fic snarls are com­mon dur­ing rush hour. The over­flow of sewage on to the main road only makes the sit­u­a­tion worse.

Mr Va­sista said that the drainage over­flow was very se­vere be­side the Bata show­room op­po­site Cy­ber Tow­ers.

He said both the GHMC and Wa­ter Board of­fi­cials had been re­solv­ing the is­sue on so­cial me­dia plat­forms but not at the ground level.

The prob­lem has been con­tin­u­ing since sev­eral months near the rail un­der bridge near Alu­gadda Bavi, Patny Cen­tre, Se­cun­der­abad, LB Na­gar, Himy­at­na­gar, Na­gar­ju­nana­gar, Tar­naka, Chilukana­gar, Ra­mant­pur, Malka­j­giri and other ar­eas.
