Coimbatore Corporation awaits Central funds for laying stormwater drains across city:

The Coimbatore Corporation is awaiting funds under the Central scheme to build stormwater drains in six wards in the city. Commissioner M. Prathap said at the general council meeting held on June 30 that the proposal for the drains, which are to be laid under five projects, was sent for sanction.

According to an engineer in the civic body, the proposal was sent nearly two months ago. The engineer said the locations were determined after the civic body studied the areas where there was high inundation during monsoon and need to be taken up on priority basis before heavy rain hits city.

As per information from the Corporation, in the Central Zone construction of new stormwater drains in Ward 31 are to be carried out at an estimated ₹2.35 crore and reconstruction of drains with pavement from VVC Road to Mettupalayam Road on the west side of Krishnasamy Road under Ward 69 for roughly ₹2.67 crore.
Likewise, in the West Zone, two new drains are expected to come up — from LPF Union Office on Mettupalayam Road to the Sanganoor canal under Ward 17 for ₹1.8 crore, and from Thiruvenkatasamy Road to the bridge over Muthannan Kulam Tank on Thadagam Road in wards 71 and 72 for ₹1.5 crore.
