New ISBT (Shimla): Very Poor rainwater drainage planning

The scene is same from the very time New ISBT was constructed. It aggravated when it became operational. This is a patch of road to Tutikandi from New ISBT (Right in front of the Toyota Showroom). When it rains, it converts into a pool, almost to cross for people on foot. The rainwater-drain pipes are opened right into the road. The floor leak. There is no rainwater harvesting system. Whole water from the ISBT flows into this road everytime it rain. The Dhaba nearby does rest of the littering that further blocks the water. Toyota doesn’t care. They hardly step outside the office, but its huge trouble for those who daily use the road. One of the poorest planning in Shimla.
