Serilingampally hit by flooding, poor sanitation, rue residents

Hyderabad: Urban flooding, traffic congestion, non-availability of last mile connectivity from metro stations and poor sanitation are some of the grievances of the people living in Serilingampally constituency.

Though people complained about traffic congestion, they mentioned that flyovers and underpasses have provided relief.

Speaking about civic amenities, residents and resident welfare associations said that the densely populated constituency needs to be upgraded with infrastructure.

“The sewerage network needs to be strengthened and measures to improve traffic congestion should be taken up besides improving the sanitation,” said Dr. Sai Ravi Shanker, president of the Federation of Gated Communities Cyberabad (FGCC).

This federation is the apex body of 62 gated communities having over 100 flats each.
Speaking about urban flooding, many lamented that even a short spell of rain inundates houses located in the low-lying areas.

Deepthi Sri nagar, Anjayya nagar and Patrika nagar are localities where residents face hardships during monsoon.

Stating that commuting becomes difficult during rains, they said that in September the Lingampally road under bridge (RuB) was closed due to water logging.

IT employees and students sought last mile connectivity from metro stations.

“I commute on a bike as there is no last mile connectivity from Madhapur metro station to Yousufguda. Once this connectivity is established, I will start travelling by metro rail,” said B. Mahesh, a student.
