PONDA: In the absence of proper drainage and gutter system, the underpass at Curti housing board colony becomes almost a pond during monsoon, causing a lot of inconvenience to pedestrians and vehicles passing from the underpass.
A Local Curti Khandepar Panchayat Panchmember Shailesh Shet said it’s four years since NH was constructed, and the locals are demanding a proper drainage system to drain the rainwater accumulated at Underpass; however, temporary measures by authorities did not solve the problem.
Chandrakant Holkar, another local, said it’s a total failure of engineers. The rainwater from surrounding areas and gutters flows towards the underpass and accumulates for several days. It’s been no rain for the past eight days, but still, the rainwater collected earlier is causing a nuisance. The locals demanded an urgent solution to the problem.
