[Resolved] Corporation Of Chennai - Palavakkam Division — Street Menace - Palavakkam
The ECR-OMR (Periyar Road) connecting road of Palavakkam is a key commute for most professionals and the mode of transport is increased in the few years. The road is actually a broad and wide (100 m, I guess), but because of encroachments and damaged roads, travelling or walking is a nightmare most of the times. The dust, stony side lanes, garbage and mosquito breeds are very common and it feels us to be living decades behind.
More worrying are the side streets that branch out of Periyar road, especially Manimekalai street, has stories to complain. Because of water logging issues during rainy days (the street landscape had fallen low as compared to Periyar road), the residents have cleverly raised their front housing with rubbish and stones, without prior permission from the Corporation of Chennai. This made the street uneven and risk of accidents even while walking is now very common. The drainage is frequently clogged with sand, waste and plastic. Also the drainage water from this street cannot pass through the passage constructed under Periyar road, because this passage (pipe) is visibly seen high and water can NEVER get thru.
We request Corporation of Chennai to immediately look into this issue, and make this area as a model for a go green city. I walked down Panchayat office many times to complain and the officials get me routed to the street cleaners and deal with it personally. I can voice for a problem but cannot execute corrective measures myself, as it do not match my pay grade or qualification. Please assist to escalate for corrective measures soon.
