In Coimbatore, condition of roads in Krishna Colony and MGR Nagar near Singanallur has been pathetic and residents in both the localities are facing trouble due to the bad roads. One can witness shoddy manner of execution of JNNURM projects including the storm water drain construction for the past couple of months in the area.
As margins of the streets in the locality have been dug up for constructing storm water drains, the entire stretch of streets has been reduced to muddy patches.
The streets were initially dug up for laying underground drainage pipelines. But they just filled up the trenches with the dug up earth which becomes muddy if it rains for 15 minutes. Then it becomes literally impossible for the residents to either walk or take their two wheelers out.
