MLA lists 20 areas which needs drains. Says he is asking GCC to consider his suggestions.

Mylapore MLA Dha. Velu says that he and his team has identified at least 20 places in the Mylapore zone which need proper storm water drains (SWDs). These are areas where flooding was severe during the recent monsoon.

He told Mylapore Times that a tender has been floated for SWDs in Seethammal Colony in Alwarpet and that work will start in a month’s time. This was one of areas which witnessed severe flooding in November – December 2021. Many houses bore the brunt of this flooding.

Also on the priority list is to have drains on Devanathan Street, which also suffered severe flooding as well as pollution, with sewage flowing into the waters and many houses affected here.

Here is the MLA’s list of areas that need proper drains –

K B Dasan Road, C V Raman Road, C P Ramaswamy Road, TTK Road, Lady Desika Road, Dr. Ranga Road, East Abhiramapuram. Ganeshapuram, Bheemanapet, St Marys Road, Srinivasan Street, Trustpakkam North, Pattammal St., Devanathan Street, Jeth Nagar, a section off Dr. R K Salai.

If you feel that one area also needs good drains, ping the MLA now.

  1. First Main Road (West), Surya Sweets Side, R A Puram requires inclusion. This area is a permanent feature causing flooding and consequent impact on all households. The flooding also doubles up for power disruption for continuous days. Enough has been said, discussed and photographs taken including adjoining areas causing this flooding. Hence, top priority action is required pending for several years.
