Underground drainage construction - Part 3

As I have written in Underground drainage construction - Part 2 road laying work precedes underground drainage construction work in many other parts of Cuddalore. This clearly reflects lack of coordination between the departments, if this is not a well played vicious game.

Underground drainage construction work in Bodi Chetty street
Around five months back (supposedly) State Highway Department laid roads in Bodi Chetty street which is now damaged in the underground drainage construction work as seen in the photograph above. A open sewage line was constructed just before laying the road. I wonder what would be the necessity for this open sewage line (rain water drain ? - if that is the case I still wonder how rain in the road will get into this - the concrete wall of the sewage line is well above the road level) while underground drainage system is coming up. Now for the houses to connect with underground drainage system, the concrete walls of this open sewage line will be broken apart. This is how the game is played!!

Drainage construction work in Cart street, where only a couple of months back black topped road was laid.

I do agree to your views. I am virtually affected by the so called drainage works in Bodi chetty Street. When the drainage works started on sides of the roads it was said that it will be a closed one and will serve the purpose of underground drainage and the open will be closed by slabs as done in Nellikuppam road. But to the worst experience of all the residents of the Bodi chetty street especially on the western side of the road(near pillayar koil) which your photo also shows; the open drain was left as such and the contractor has gone into woods. All the houses have linked their drain into the open drain already. But now once again the UG drain work is started to damage the roads. How the houses will link the drains to the proposed UG system? After crossing a open drain?????? Silly thoughts of the top brass officials. What is happening in Cuddalore? Does anybody could explain? The top officers of the District are mere watchers of the incidents. But WHO CARES OR DARES?
