Sewage overflow causing health problems

The Hindu, 02 February 2014

 

Residents of Dattatreya Colony in the Asifnagar area are facing problems owing to sewage overflow, which causes stench throughout the colony.

 

Most residents of the colony are senior citizens, and the unhygienic conditions are endangering their health. Complaints to the authorities have gone unheeded even as the problem persists even after the drains are cleaned by the high-tech sewage clearance machine.

 

The HMWSSB authorities should address the problem immediately.

ENSURE PUBLIC HYGIENE

 

The stretch near SBI bank at the entrance of Rythu Bazaar, Mehdipatnam, emanates unbearable stench, as passers-by relieve themselves against the compound wall of the bazaar. I request the civic authorities to enforce strict measures in the interest of public hygiene.

Set up signal

 

There is a need for a traffic signal at Ramanthapur on the main road heading towards Amberpet and Uppal. Traffic on this route has increased manifold in recent months, but it is not regulated by traffic police, endangering pedestrian safety.

 

A pedestrian crossing should also be provided to help schoolchildren and old people.

THEFT MENACE ON THE RISE

 

Theft menace in Siddardha Nagar (North) in Kalyana Nagar, Near A.G. Colony, Erragadda, has gone up in recent days. Residents of the colony, which falls under the limits of S.R. Nagar Police Station, are terrified by thieves, who target the area frequently. In a span of 20 days, thieves have stolen a lot of valuables from houses that are locked from outside.

 

The offenders also bolt the neighbouring houses from outside to prevent people from coming out. Police should take necessary steps to ensure the safety of the residents by improving surveillance in the area.

The association thanks the APSRTC officials for the prompt action.
