Madurai MP Su Venkatesan on Monday inspected the smart city projects in the city which are in various stages of progress. He inspected the revamped park around the King Thirumalai Nayak Mahal, development work of heritage sites like Vilakkuthoon, Pathu Thoon and smart street scaping of Masi streets.
Su Venkatesan said that Madurai is witnessing high traffic congestion and high levels of air pollution. Dust emanating from the smart city projects is also a cause of concern. Issues like these are inevitable when development projects are carried out. However, it has to be ensured that they cause minimum inconvenience to people, Venkatesan said. He said that as a representative of people, he has been taking all possible steps from his end to ensure that development works are carried out with good quality of work. Underground drainage construction works for the 15 wards in north Madurai have begun at the cost of Rs 275 crore. The left out wards in south Madurai will get the facility after the funds are obtained. Periyar Bus Terminal will be available for public use by March, he added.
