By Express News ServiceCHENNAI: In a comedy-of-errors, the corporation on Friday dug up the Cemetery Road, which it had relaid only on Wednesday.
Only then the civic body realised that the new road was laid over the drainage systems and manholes, which prevented water from draining out.
About six manholes were covered and men were drilling the road to remove the asphalt.
“The contractor relaid the new road above the old one without even clearing the bitumen.
The work started at midnight on Monday and there is a chance that drainage and manholes would have been missed,’’ said a civic body official.
