TS: Govt plans to install railings on both sides of ‘Musi’
Hyderabad received about 32 cm of rainfall on Tuesday the 13th of this month. At least 10 cm of rain fell on the 17th of this month.
The Telangana government has taken a key decision to take steps to prevent people from getting in trouble with the heavy rains in the city. The government has decided to set up railings on both sides of the Musi River.
Authorities are currently reviewing the flood situation on the Musi River by drones from time to time in the wake of heavy rains. Officials who conducted the inspection said they would decide where to set up the railing on both sides of the river. Sudhir Reddy, chairman of the Musi River Board, told reporters.
He opined that the flood flow was high in Hyderabad due to heavy rainfall and hence the Musi River was overflowing. The railing will be set up so that people do not get in trouble in the future with the Musi flow. In addition, the quality of bridges previously built over the Musi River will also be re-examined. Sudhir Reddy explained that vehicular traffic would be allowed only after inspecting them after the flood collision had subsided.
It is known that the Musi flowed dangerously from the Chadar Ghat and Moosarambagh bridges. Twice in a span of four days, floodwaters overflowed from the bridge over the Moosarambagh bridge. With this, the authorities decided to check the quality of the bridges.
Hyderabad received about 32 cm of rainfall on Tuesday the 13th of this month. At least 10 cm of rainfall was recorded on the 17th of this month. With this, the residents of Bhagyanagar, who are recovering from the effects of the floods, will have to face the floods again. People are trembling when Meteorological Department officials warn that it will rain in the city again. Many colonies in the city are still under water.
