MMRC to take measures to avoid the menace of mosquitoes at Metro-3 construction sites

The construction of the Metro-3 project will soon be over and the transport service will begin soon as the Phase-13 of the metro rail was recently concluded. However, after the construction was completed, there have been pits left that were dug earlier for the work and it is quite evident that during monsoon the pits will be filled with water.

This can result in the breeding of mosquitoes near the pits and thus, the transport wing has decided to take necessary measures to avoid the outbreak of diseases from the same. In order to avoid the increase of mosquitoes on Mumbai streets, MMRC will be spraying medicines around the pits.

The transport company has taken the initiative and will be assisted by the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) as they will spray the medicines at around 27 Metro-3 stations. 

Along with this, MMRC has also arranged for pumps to drain the excess water that would get collected in the pits. The Metro company will also use dumpers to get rid of the debris collected around the construction sites to avoid waterlogging. 

Meanwhile, MMRC has already teamed up with BMC's local offices and the civic body's  Disaster Management office and has stated that they will communicate on a daily basis during monsoon.
