Lack of clean water and toilets at Hyderabad stations and bus stops irks commuters

  • As per a report in Deccan Chronicle the travellers at many Hyderabad Metro and railway stations are facing problems due to the lack of the availability of fresh drinking water and toilets.

    Even though the Hyderabad Metro Rail provides free drinking water at the 24 stations in operation, the commuters still have to look for bottled water options as there are no signs to make the people aware of the availability of water.

    The toilets are missing from almost all the stations and just three are currently under contruction—at Begumpet, Miyapur, and Rasoolpura stations.

    While the Metro Rail fails to inform the passengers of the water accessibility, the South Central Railways fails to provide clean water. The water is easily available at the stations but the quality of the water is questionable.

    None of the city’s bus stations except Jubilee Bus Station and Mahatma Gandhi Bus Terminal has water or toilets.
