VIJAYAWADA:  Singapore-based Surbana group director Leong Kin Weng and vice-president G Raghunath Babu has listened intently when CRDA officials briefed them about Kondaveeti Vagu which has been causing concern for the government which wants to construct a modern capital on the banks of Krishna river.

As Kondaveeti Vagu is known for its flash floods, the two representatives from Singapore paid special attention to the problem as CRDA chief engineer D Kasi Visweswara Rao explained to them how flash floods occur, with the help of a powerpoint presentation.

He told them that 10,500 acre land faces the threat of inundation when flash floods occur and explained the proposal to divert water to Krisna river. A survey is going on in an area of 475 square km which is its catchment area. Five survey teams of the CRDA were working on the project, he said. The Singapore team arrived in Vijayawada Wednesday morning and conferred with collector Babu A, municipal commissioner G Veerapandian and others.

According to the district collector, the team was in Vijayawada to study the proposal to develop green cover for the capital city and accordingly make necessary provisions in the master plan. The duo are in Vjayawada to examine the suitability of using advanced technology which is being used in Singapore for conducting a comprehensive survey of the capital area.

The two Singapore representatives will confer with collector once again Thursday to study the survey conducted for implementation of master plan and core area plan.
