By Shri. Nilesh Cabral, Hon’ble Minister for PWD 

(a) whether the Government is aware that the culverts  and cross drains passing under the newly constructed National Highway passing through Santa Cruz Constituency are choked /blocked; if so, give details;

Sir, No. They are not blocked as they are being monitored regularly and kept in blockage free condition by the contractor under DLP obligation. It is to add that existing cross drainages have only been extended by the EPC contractor to the full width of project work carried out by him, maintaining the cross sectional area as same.

There is no flooding which could be attributed to blockage in cross drains as they are being maintained clean. The flooding is due to area under water basin has been illegally encroached upown thereby reducing the capacity by locals causes intermittent blockages in drains which are being cleaned by the EPC contractor.

(c) whether the Government plans to clear these blockages to facilitate the smooth flow of water from one side to the other side of the National Highway; if so, give details?

Clearing of debris/blockages is a recurrent operation and it will be taken up regularly by contractor till DLP gets over which is 4 years. DLP which is 4 years.
