Mangaluru: Engineers' 'super brains' in Smart City projects has netizens in splits


Daijiworld Media Network - Mangaluru (ANK)

Mangaluru, July 5: The heavy downpour in the last one week has revealed the mismanagement and unscientific work under the Smart City project across the city.

Every monsoon, Mangaluru gets flooded at the same locations such as Malemar, Pumpwell, Kannur, Padil, Kottara Chowki which has resulted in mockery of the administration by the netizens across Mangaluru over the Smart City project

People are clicking pictures of the unscientific roads, drainage works under the Smart City project and posting them on social media.

Recently, a picture from Hampankatta where a zebra cross was blocked by railings in the footpath. Netizens captioned the picture as pedestrians need to jump over the railing to walk over the zebra cross. It received severe backlash on social media ridiculing it as smart engineers' work.

On July 4, the railing was removed so that the pedestrians could walk on the zebra cross

Now on a street located between MG Road and Jail Road, a pole is right in between the footpath and a road posing danger to motorists. A civic activist took this picture to social media, questioning the engineers' credibility and their plans.

The picture of the same in getting viral on social media.

Even though the drainage works have been completed everywhere, the engineers have failed to keep a space for the water from the road to flow into the drainage. Hardly, there is any space between the drainage and road.

The newly constructed concrete road has been excavated for the purpose of Gail gas connection but it is not closed on time which is inconveniencing the public.

Mangalureans are also unhappy with the unscientific way of changing the traffic island at State Bank which is confusing the public. The traffic island is not constant as it keeps on changing every now and then. Some have also questioned the need of removing A B Shetty Circle and Hamilton Circle , while few wish that the city corporation could have renovated the existed circles instead of wasting money under smart city.

    They seem to be making some electrical boxes on the foot paths on SL Mathais Road . Why dont they understand that foot paths are for pedestrians to walk and not get obstructed by these obstacles!!!!! which are dangerous and may not be visible at night .

    When an MLA takes credit for every road built in the city on taxpayers money, he should also take responsibility for such glitches. where is he now ? . Why should we blame only engineers now ? I still don't understand why we should praise the MLA for the road built on Tax Payers money. Don't we pay him hefty salary for his job.

    Most people don't understand this concept, that is the problem. When there is such a competition for any jobs out there, we don't have any such educational criteria for our elected representatives. How can we expect a illiterate to have understanding about the administration.

    No- there is no rational reasoning behind reservation category being below par. It is just a made up thing by higher castes to continue with caste privilege. I worked with several colleagues on ships from reserved or general- there was no difference which i could point out. 96% of private managerial are UC , Gazetted officers 75 % are UC mostly Upper 2 castes. So, did that make India less corrupt, or more clean , hygienic or our air and waters better? I would think not. Human beings are always innovative given right environment, right support and equal access to resources. It is the denial of access to good water, good food , good education/upbringing that kills the spirit of competition-you can see it in action wherever CASTE / COLOR /CREED/ LANGUAGE barriers occur. Resrvation is a reaction to above barriers. Christianity is one of the creeds which preaches equality in everything. In practice - it depends how this equality is defined at each location.

    Civil engineering is not rocket science... It has time tested norms already in practice for decades... This is utter stupidity to build things in wrong fashion and insult to civil engineers... Every master plan has detailed drawings right down to a pin and joint detail... Plus it has to go through supervision by contractor'e engineer as well as that of consultant/client... What is the hurry to complete works in such shabby manner only to remove and refit within a short time???...

    That is how the chaddiwalas keep the public's attention diverted from the real issues, while they loot the tax payers money. Double their renumerations every now & then while the tax payer is saddled with more & more taxes.
