PONDA: In the absence of proper drainage and gutter system, the underpass at Curti housing board colony gets flooded like a pond during monsoon causing a lot of inconvenience to pedestrians and motorists moving through the underpass.
Curti Khandepar Panchayat panch Shailesh Shet said “It's been four years now that the national highway has been constructed. Locals have been demanding a proper drainage system for the rain water accumulated at underpass. However temporary measures by authorities did not solve the issues.”
A local, Chandrakant Holkar said that it's a total failure of engineering. “The rain water from surrounding areas and gutters flows towards underpass and accumulates for several days. Even if it doesn’t rain for a few days in between, the rain water accumulated earlier causes a nuisance”, he added. The locals demanded an urgent solution to the problem.
