Erode bus stand in need of attention
July 2, 2010 Leave a comment
ERODE: Overflowing sewage, uncollected garbage, stinking and sickening toilets, broken chairs and dust covered platforms continue to be the hallmarks of Erode bus stand.
Despite the fact that thousands of people visit and hundreds of buses touch it daily, the condition of the bus stand is utterly chaotic, signifying the total apathy of the local authorities in improving the conditions prevailing here.
“The air is always filled with foul smell emanating from the unclean public toilets and uncollected garbage heaps,” say passengers.
The public convenience facilities at the bus stand are stinking. Most of the bus crew and passengers dare not enter these toilets, but prefer to ease themselves in the open, behind some vehicles.
As if the above mentioned problems are not suffice, the septic tank of a pay-and-use toilet started overflowing on Thursday.
