Rains add to the civic mess in some areas

Intermittent rains the past few days are exposing the shortfalls in the civic conditions in the neighbourhood.

It rained in some parts of Mylapore area at about 4 p.m. and the skies opened up again after 9 p.m.

There have been rains last week too.

Blocked drains and uncleared garbage on the roadsides are the cause of water flooding and stagnation. Some inner streets of R. A. Puram are in a messy state.

Half done drains with the excavated earth left unattended and drains still open, as in Royapettah High Road area where some power cabling work has been on pose a danger to motorists and pedestrians in the wet weather.
