Lit by day, a bridge of power peril

A huge amount of electricity is wasted on Vidyasagar Setu every day. Lamps on the bridge are seldom switched off. Electric fuse boxes, near the toll-collection building, are in a dangerous condition and can drag anyone into an accident any moment. During the monsoon, the loose wires are often the reason behind deaths by electrocution. The state electricity board must check such waste.

Vend and litter

Vegetable vendors who sit every evening near the Ultadanga station dump refuse in the adjoining areas. The spot is also used as a toilet. The civic body should take steps.
