Abandoned pipelines at Juinagar railway station worries commuters

After most part of the city, looks like now it’s the turn of the Juinagar Railway station where scores of sewerage pipelines have been stacked by NMMC.

Ill planned and ill timed functioning of NMMC administration often ends up inconveniencing residents of planned city Navi Mumbai and creating hassles for them. This has again come to light at Juinagar Railway station where sewerage pipelines have been brought and left abandoned for months. There is no sign of NMMC beginning the work anytime soon even as these pipelines have been stacked. These new pipelines waiting to go underground are spotted on almost all footpaths, open grounds and city corners. One more place which has added to the list if the Juinagar Railway station. NMMC has managed to even gobble up the space of this railway station so that it can stack scores of sewerage pipelines until monsoons. The same case was seen even last year during monsoons when NMMC had stacked pipelines on footpaths. The pipelines at the Juinagar Railway station has been stacked by NMMC for the last eight months. While NMMC is still to do decide when these pipelines will go underground, at present they have become an epitcentre of mosquito breeding.

Locals call this sheer negligence on part of NMMC. These abandoned pipelines have become epicenter of mosquitoes, snakes and diseases inconveniencing residents of the area. In the last one year, NMMC has called for tenders worth Crores of Rupees for laying water and sewerage lines and in the absence of proper planning and due to ill timing, pipelines have been left abandoned in most sectors for months. These conditions of the pipelines are deteriorating while at the same they are inconveniencing residents and becoming a center of all kinds of unhygienic conditions and diseases.
