Accompanied by Director, Municipal Administration, P. Ponniah and Commissioner Raja Gopal Sunkara, he visited the site where the Corporation was constructing the ₹168-crore integrated bus terminal.

After asking engineers supervising the project to ensure quality in construction, he went to the site where the Corporation bio-mined the accumulated waste. The contractor should complete bio-mining the waste within the project period, he said.

The contractor should segregate the accumulated waste into degradable and non-degradable and send the latter to cement factories to be used as fuel. Timely completion of the project would help the Corporation retrieve 68 acre, the land on which it had dumped the waste, he added.
