Sub-standard side drain works : Concrete slab sinks near Raghavendra Mutt

Mangaluru, July 02, 2018:  The photograph shown here is that of a collapsed concrete slab covering a   storm  drain right in front of the Sri Raghavendra Swami Mutt in Mangaluru.  The slab is literally broken and has sunk revealing the sub-standard works that are likely to pose danger   to the  public.



ROAD 2ju

What is alarming here is that the side drain works were done just before the monsoons during the months of March and April to ensure free flow of rain water.  The road had remained  closed  for traffic for several days to facilitate the work. When the works were complete the public had heaved a sigh of relief  and had even put up a banner thanking the local corporator.

Earlier,  in the absence of  proper side drains, it was a common sight to see the  rain water  right from the Central Market area   up to Bhavanthi Street  flow on the road  and join the  huge storm water drain near the Trishuleshwara Shrine  close by the Raghavendra Mutt.

Though the completion of the side drain works had  pleased the locals, the happiness has not lasted long  with a concrete slab giving way, thereby  raising doubts regarding the standard of works. Hope the authorities concerned would take note of the problem and do the needful.
