Navi Mumbai Taloja subway waterlogged within days of opening

It has been only 10 days since the Taloja subway opened up and it is waterlogged already. This waterlogging is creating a lot of nuisance for Navi Mumbai commuters.

As per reports, the railways repaired the ₹28 crores subway, stopping the flooding of creek water. However, it denied attributing the cause for the water logging to faulty design or insufficient pumping capacity. Back on November 9, the subway was opened for the commuters and soon after the passengers have been complaining of waterlogging and there is chaos ensued in the area. The subway has been constructed as the residents of Taloja have had to spend hours in traffic jams caused by the railway crossing in the past.

On the other hand, the Navi Mumbai Municipal Corporation (NMMC) is to take strict action against people defecating in public places or dumping waste in open areas as the civic body is touted to deploy squads to monitor those responsible.

According to sources, the residents of Navi Mumbai have been complaining of rampant dumping of waste which includes open defecation in the slum areas. Moreover, the special squads are also said to conduct special raids on hawkers who used banned plastic bags post the festivities. The squads can also penalize the violators of the norms imposed by the civic body. In addition, the NMMC is said to focus on slum areas, areas near railway tracks, open spaces and mangrove belts which are more prone to waste disposal.
