100 makeshift stalls go

Chennai: The Chennai Corporation on Thursday removed encroachments on the Elliot’s beach in Besant Nagar and directed hawkers to stay within a designated area.

Only a month ago, the civic body had taken up a similar drive on the beach.

But the hawkers had again moved out of the space allocated for them.

About 100 makeshift shops, including ice-cream, soft drinks and balloon stalls, were cleared.

Two earthmovers and a crane were used to dismantle the shops.

About 60 Corporation employees worked to clear the encroachments.

Corporation officials of the Adyar zone would monitor the situation regularly to ensure that the beach remained free of encroachments, a release here said.
