The remarks came after residents living near the Bur Dubai Taxi Station alleged lack of action even after several complaints that the demolition of an old building in the area was posing health risks, with dust and smoke emanating from the debris for the past four days. The residents claimed they had complained to the DM in this connection.
Abu Bakr, Manager of Al Madina Supermarket located close to the demolition site, told Khaleej Times that four-storey Al Rumaithy Building is currently being demolished.
The building is almost 35 years old and was popularly known as 'Lift Building' as this was the first building in the area to be equipped with a lift. Bakr claimed that he, along with other residents in the vicinity, had made several calls to DM as well as the company carrying out the demolition project to register their concern.
As a result, the company has finally brought in a water tanker to contain the dust from spreading.
Meanwhile, an official at the Buildings Department of the civic body told Khaleej Times: "Companies carrying out demolition work should ensure continuous water supply at the demolition site to contain the dust and smoke from the debris and containing it from spreading into the vicinity.
"Also, there should be a barrier of at at least 2.5 metres height all round the site so that the debris does not scatter around, posing risk to the passers-by and the residents of the area."
The official added: "DM holds regular inspections and also follows up on complaints. A violator is first served with a warning letter and is fined in case of repetition of offence. The fine starts from Dh500 and can go up to Dh50,000," he pointed out.
Meanwhile, when contacted, the company officials said they were taking all necessary precautions.
"We have had a water tanker permanently stationed on the site, but it needs to go for a refill at regular intervals. Moreover, all precautions like barricading etc. have been taken," said Sayed, an official of the company.
