The members of Santacruz section of H-ward Federation are sceptical about whether their ward is ready for the rains. They dread the water-logging, transmission of waterborne diseases and other issues that the monsoon will bring with it.


HT accompanied the members of Advanced Locality management (ALM) and Santacruz section of H-west ward Federation to identify the flood-prone spots.

 They examined North Avenue, South Avenue and Main Avenue outfalls located in Gazdar Bandh Road area. All of them portrayed a sorry picture.

Local civic officials chose not to react to the remarks by the ALM about monsoon preparedness. Despite repeated calls, Sunil M Dhamane, H-west ward officer, was not available for comment. He did not respond to our text messages either.

Motorists hoping to save time while taking the Santacruz Chembur Link Road (SCLR), which was opened to public on Friday, would have to crawl through certain sections as the traffic police have imposed a speed limit of 30kmph on the bridges, along with some other restrictions to ensure smooth flow of traffic.
