HYDERABAD: The High Court on Thursday directed the Hyderabad district collector to hand over possession of an alternative site to the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation for shifting and modernising the garbage transport station at Imliban Park in the city.

A division bench comprising chief justice Madan B Lokur and justice BN Rao Nalla gave this direction while dealing with a plea by the Imliban Park Walkers Association challenging the action of the civic authority in converting an open place near the park into a dumping yard.

The petitioner urged the court to direct the civic body to shift the garbage collection point from Imliban Park to an area outside the city. The civic body contended that it was not a dumping yard but a transit point. Earlier, the court directed the GHMC to modernise the transit point without causing pollution at the area.

Advocate-general A Sudarshan Reddy submitted that the modernisation work was entrusted to Ramky company and the project would be completed by the end of September.

Meanwhile the transit point would be shifted to an alternative place which was identified, he said and urged the court to grant time for completion of the project.

While directing the Hyderabad district collector to hand over the identified site within 15 days, the court posted the case to June.
