Members of the local level monitoring committee constituted to study issues created by the works in areas adjacent to the Muttom Yard inspected the site on Wednesday.
The committee which was formed as per the instructions of the Chief Minister at a high level meet held in Thiruvananthapuram last week, comprises of officials with the KMRL, DMRC, Choornikkara panchayat members and chairmen of Aluva and Kalamassery municipalities.
With the levelling of the site at Aluva for the Muttom yard, water logging has become a major issue. “ Several canals have been covered up as part of the construction works. The drainage system has gone haywire. It was at this point that waste water from neighbouring sites used to be collect and flow to Kalamassery. However, with the closure of these canals, there is no free flow of water which has resulted in water logging. The KMRL and DMRC have decided to set up an alternative drainage system which will help resolve the issue,” said Choornikkara panchayat president Santha Unnikrishnan.
The existing canals which have been closed down will be widened.
