Citizen’s life along the drainage pipe road

8 drainage pipe road

Some travellers driving down the drainage pipe road complain of bad smells coming from the pipe. But what do the residents along that road think?

Khemko, a resident of the drainage pipe road for more than 20 years, said that he has grown accustomed to its presence.

“At the beginning, I also felt that I smell bad things from the pipe, but after about one or two years, it is common to me, maybe because I got used to the environment here.”

He added that it smells the worst after rain showers, but otherwise he does not notice it. He added that the drainage pipe has no effect on health.

“Although the place is near the drainage pipe, it doesn’t make any troubles to residents’ health or give them any diseases.”

However, Khemko that something could be done to reduce the odours.

“Even though it doesn’t have any bad effects to me and other residents, if it is possible to close this drainage pipe and stop the smells, that would be better.”
