For the poor condition of roads in Hyderabad-Secunderabad twin cities, the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) has blamed the Hyderabad Metropolitan Water Supply and Sewerage Board (HMWS&SB). Due to constant sewage overflows only about 80 per cent of the roads in the cities were battered, the Corporation alleged. Pipeline leakages and water stagnation were causing damages to the raods in the twin cities, it said.
The Corporation also said that damages were also caused due to incessant rains. As Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy sought a comprehensive road action plan and reasons for road damages in a week’s time, the GHMC will submit a detailed report to the Chief Minister by giving ample proof along with photographs that roads are getting damaged due to constant sewage overflows and pipeline leakages.
The Corporation, quoting the CM said that Delhi has better roads when compared to Hyderabad as the national capital has good drainage system.
