Residents of Kalyani Nagar are troubled by the deplorable condition of the footpath on South Avenue in Kalyani Nagar. The path is broken and littered with heaps of trash, creating a serious health risk for residents.

Speaking to Pune Pulse, Nishit Kamath, Resident of Kalyaninagar, said “Opposite Clover Water Garden & Waterfront side, I have seen a lot of furniture-related debris lying there. What is surprising is that this pavement was made around 1 month ago. To see all of this again over here was a little harrowing. On top of that, there are garbage patches across the pavements, which get spilled on the pavements. People keep setting them on fire. Whenever we put a complaint regarding this, it is resolved. But we don’t know who is putting in the trash in the first place.”

Jaffar Iqbal, Resident of Kalyaninagar, said “The footpath construction is not completed. It is pending since a lot of time. We have been doing regular follow ups regarding it since 2-3 months. Debris keeps lying there. It is an issue for the citizens to walk on the footpaths. Several complaints have been raised to the PMC regarding this. However, nothing has happened yet.”

Monica S, Resident of Kalyaninagar, said “The conditions on South Avenue are simply unacceptable. The dilapidated footpaths, overflowing trash, and absence of street lights put our health and safety at risk every day. Diseases like leptospirosis and dengue thrive in such unsanitary environments, and the presence of cement debris only adds to the hazards. We did escalate this to PMC multiple times and complaints are closed with remark “Work will start soon” and nothing happens. We need immediate intervention from PMC to address these issues and ensure a clean and safe living environment for all residents.”

Manohar Mali, Junior Engineer, PMC, said “When the Metro-related work was being done here, garbage, debris etc was dumped here. We have picked up some of the garbage. However, since the quantity of the debris is large, we have requested the Solid Waste Management to pick up the entire garbage on the footpaths, which will be done soon.”
