HYDERABAD: Even as fresh cracks appeared on Chennai’s Anna Salai, barely two days after a state-run bus and a car fell into a crater, municipal department officials say that Hyderabad roads too are prone to such cave-ins going by the ‘vulnerable’ drains passing under them.
Incidents of roads caving in are not new to Hyderabad. In the last one year, the city has seen some road cave-ins in different areas including NTR Marg, Secunderabad Clock Tower, Safilguda, Minister’s Road etc.
There are many stretches where old trunk sewer mains and stormwater drains laid over three decades ago have now weakened and there are possibilities of road caving-in at any point.
