Unbearable stench

Staff Correspondent

HASSAN: Whenever a bridge or a culvert is constructed, a bypass is laid to divert traffic. And, if a bypass is made to replace a blocked sewage pipe, the result is unimaginable.

A sewage pipe on Park Road near Sahyadri Circle in Hassan got blocked a month ago. The municipal staff came up with an idea. They cut the sewage pipe and let the waste into an open drain.

The result: people passing through the road have to bear the stench. The most affected are the shopkeepers adjacent to the drain. All their appeals to the City Municipal Council have not yielded any result so far. Work to replace the sewage pipe is going on at snail's pace.
