The nalla repair works and emptying of the Hassainsagar lake have been speeded up. As such the Tank Bund road has been closed for traffic from May 22 to 31 and vehicles coming from various directions are being diverted. A huge pipeline is being laid to divert industrial waste coming into the lake. The Rs 400-cr works on nalla diversion works are meant to divert 400 million litres of industrial waste coming from Kukatpally and Jeedimetla areas to the Amberpet sewage treatment plant. Works on clearing the lake bed are going on simultaneously where 400 cusecs of water are being cleared through four channels daily. This has brought down the water level in the lake from 1 tmc. to 0.6 tmc.
