Corporation Trains Gun on Roads with Potholes

A number of schemes concentrating on outer areas of the city received much attention during this month’s Corporation Council Meeting. The city council passed a number of resolutions on schemes such as better quality roads, LED street lighting and construction of storm water drains in areas such as Ambattur, Alandur and Sholinganallur.
Out of the 97 resolutions passed during the council meeting a number of these focused on bringing the recently added and outer areas of the city to corporation standards. A separate resolution was passed for laying of better quality roads in Ambattur The mayor informed that “Road laying works in outer areas such as Ambattur and Alandur were going on in quick pace and can be expected to be completed before March 31 and in case of delays, it will be completed by April 10.”
The council also passed a resolution on installing over 534 LED lights in Ambattur of which 100 had already been installed, claimed the mayor. Laying of storm water drains in areas such as Alandur also drew special focus.
However, a slew of minor developments were also announced for areas in the city such Kodambakkam and Thiru Vi Ka Nagar. The Mayor expressed that the space under the Kodambakkam flyover will be properly barricaded and other improvements will be made. During the proceedings the council also passed a resolution to construct clothes protection rooms for the innumerous Dhobis living in Saidapet and MGR Nagar along the lines of those already available at the Chetpet Dhobi Khana.
One of the councilors mooted the idea of providing quota for councillors to provide jobs in Corporation projects.
