Commissioner and Mayor visit Mattuthavani bus stand

Corporation Commissioner, R. Nanthagopal, on Wednesday directed the officials to put up a covered drainage system in front of the Mattuthavani integrated bus stand and provide roof for the two-wheeler parking lot.

The Commissioner, along with the Mayor, V.V. Rajan Chellappa, two advocate commissioners, M. Thirunavukarasu and J. Nisha Banu, inspected the bus stand against a backdrop of the High Court summoning him to seek explanation on the poor maintenance of the bus stand.

Mr. Nanthagopal wanted the officials to put up an iron fencing around the bus stand to prevent people from urinating in the open space. Besides, he directed the officials to put up boards announcing that a fine of Rs.50 would be imposed on open urination.

The Commissioner also asked them to repair the roof of the bus stand building to plug leakage of rainwater from the ceiling.

A statement said that Mr. Nanthagopal ordered to put up an additional seating facility for the passengers and asked each of the shopkeepers to place dustbins individually. The shopkeepers have been advised not to haphazardly park their vehicles in the bus stand.
