District Collector and GVMC Special Officer Pravin Kumar today inaugurated manual sweeping machines and power sprayers.

GVMC Commissioner M.Hari Narayanan said that the German made machines are aimed at improving sanitation and reducing workers’ grind. The 20 machines and 10 sprayers will be distributed tall over the city with emphasis on the core area comprising Zones 2,3 and 4. The machines will be used on important, end-to-end roads, While, manual sweeping with broom covers one km of road in an hour, the machines can cover three to four kilometers.

The sprayers have better reach and can also be used for aerial spraying. In phases, more machines and sprayers will be acquired.
