News: Drain below flyover clogged with waste’-26-07-2021


Gurgaon: Clogged drains along the service lane of National Highway-8 and Rampura flyover has become a cause of concern for thousands of residents living in the new sectors.
Residents said that the drain is filled with stagnant water, plastic and other waste and commuting on the stretch daily becomes difficult even after a light spell of rain. The stink becomes unbearable, they added. They alleged that several complaints have been made to the authorities concerned to fix the issue, but they have gone unheard.
Pradeep Singh, a resident of Sector 81, said, “The drain along the Rampura flyover and NH-8 is completely clogged with waste, mud and stagnant water. Every time when it rains, the water accumulates as a result the commuters face a lot of inconvenience.”

They added that the junction is critical as people use this stretch for travelling to Sector 81, 82, 83, 85, 89, 90, 91, 92, which further connects to Pataudi Road. The residents also suspected that there are illegal sewer connections in the storm water drain from the nearby village.

Rao Dharamveer Singh, a resident of Sector 82, said that there is frequent overflowing of dirty water from the blocked drain and there is hardly any cleaning. “The accumulated water is also damaging the road and creating potholes. We have raised the issue with the concerned authorities for the past one year, but no permanent solution has been provided to us so far.”


When contacted, Ajay Kumar Arya, project director of NHAI, said that there was a culvert which drained out the water but it had been covered by the locals as a result the drain had been blocked leading to water stagnation.

“Although we have made a temporary arrangement and the water has been pumped out. We cannot initiate any work beyond our right of way. If the local civic authorities construct the drain then we can connect the drain line for the outlet,” Arya said.

Elaborating on the complaint regarding the illegal sewer connection in the storm drain, he said, “We have received several complaints on the matter about the illegal sewer connections by the residential colonies in the stormwater drain. We have asked the concessionaire to conduct a survey to ascertain the complaints, and action will be taken accordingly,” he said.
