This trench has been lying wide open since the past few months. The authorities who had closed the drains in other places with stone slabs however did not close the drain here for reasons best known to them. There is always the danger of some vehicle falling into this trap in a bid to overtake or while giving side for some other vehicle.
The locals have already informed the TMC but so far there has been no response. Of late there are reports that the irate locals are planning a protest and also thinking in terms of complaining to the higher authorities.
