VISAKHAPATNAM: Taking forward the struggle to end open defecation and accomplish the dream of a cleaner Vizag, GVMC commissioner Pravin Kumar sanctioned two Sulabh toilet complexes for Lawson’s Bay Colony, one each at the beach park and graveyard beach, Wednesday

Visiting the colony as a part of his routine check,  the commissioner spotted some people using the beach for open defecation.

He exhorted senior citizens and leaders of the area to put an end to the open defecation as it can lead to a health hazard.

Pravin Kumar also reviewed the ongoing development works at the Lawson’s Bay beach park. The beautification works at the Lawson’s Bay beach park were severely damaged by cyclone Hudhud.

The commissioner had recently approved a proposal to bring back the glory of the park, for which Rs 13.30 crore, was sanctioned. He also directed the officials to kick-start the works immediately.

A road will be laid from the Waltair RTC Depot to the beach park. Pravin Kumar also visited the NSTL and Madhavadhara areas.

At a review meeting with the officials, the commissioner directed the engineering officials to complete all the ongoing project within a timeframe. He also directed the officials to have complete  knowledge about the projects and to complete works within the time frame.
