THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: A new sewerage system to benefit the 170 families at Jyothipuram lane in Valiyasala will be implemented utilising Rs 50 lakh from the asset development fund of Health Minister V S Sivakumar who is also the MLA of the area. The decision was taken at a meeting convened by the Minister at Secretariat here on Tuesday. He said the work will start soon.

 The front portion of the sewerage system of the Jyothipuram Lane under the control of railways got damaged many years ago. The works related to shifting and replacing the service line got hampered owing to railways’ stiff resistance. Earlier, railways had allotted an area for installing service lines in two-metre width, where the present sewerage line exists. As it is impossible to set up another line in this area, the new line will be taken from Jyothipuram Junction to Thycaud Hospital - Rail Overbridge.

 Divisional Railway Manager Sunil Bajpai said that the demand for constructing a two-metre wide walkway above the existing sewerage line would be considered. The walkway will give a solace to the local residents who find it difficult to take patients to hospital or bodies to crematorium.
