Risky ride on rusty tracks

Travelling in a tram has become a risky affair, especially in north Calcutta. Recently, a tram loaded with passengers jumped tracks on Belgachhia bridge, but the commuters thankfully survived. The vehicle screeched to a halt just on the edge of the bridge. Most tramcars need repairs. The tracks must also be relaid.

Not in the dark

This is in response to a complaint in this column. During a recent inspection at Heysham Road, a CESC team found that the lighting installations on this stretch were operating. One of the two sodium vapour lamps fitted to a Corporation post, in front of Ajmera High School, was found out of order.

Market mess

Mechua fruit market remains littered with fruit peels, leaves and straws, while flies buzz overhead. The civic body should order a clean-up.
