Hyderabad Roads Spell Mishaps During the Monsoon

Living and commuting in the city has become nothing short of a nightmare when there is a heavy spell. Stormwater drains and lack of proper meshes along the wall of drains have led to the loss of lives during the monsoon season. One such incident was that of a 54-yr-old man in Qutbullahpur who died by falling into an open drain. Five days after the incident, the civic officials haven’t found the body yet.


Though there was a chain link mesh, it was rusty and partially broken, resulting in the accident. In another incident, a techie stepped into a drain thinking it was road as there was no specific demarcation.


While these are two incidents, commuting during the rainy season has become life-threatening for many. Of course, in the techie’s case, action has been taken against irresponsible officials who left the manhole open in Manikonda.


The main problem faced by residents in most colonies is that of open nalas and drains without any mesh or chain-linked mesh. When it rains heavily, it is hard to make out the demarcation between a Nala and a road. The problem is severe at the culverts. GHMC has constructed small roads over culverts in many areas. But this is not helping when the rains are heavy. People are not able to distinguish between the Nala and the road.


However, the officials say when the drain is less than two meters in width; safety measures include laying slabs or covers and constructing box or pipe drains wherever the drain is open. However, when the width is over two meters, a retaining wall or chain-linked mesh is the only option to prevent mishaps.
