On March 8, the scene was repeated. Felipe Siqueira, responsible for the complaint, regretted the situation. “It was an old problem that has worsened recently with the works that came here, a noble region that is getting high developments. But, unfortunately, on rainy days the region is flooded, impassable and the worker who comes here to live or enjoy it cannot pass. […] We have a petition that requires action from the Municipality, the state, the councilors, everyone”, says Felipe. Another reported problem is the difficulty of crossing the intersection of Avenidas Santo Amaro and Avenida Roque Petrone Júnior, in front of the Station. Felipe remembers that he was promised a crosswalk that would make life easier for pedestrians. But the station was inaugurated in September 2017 and, until today, the work has not happened. In a statement, the municipality said that Avenida Roque Petroni Júnior receives weekly cleaning services and that there are ongoing studies with the Municipal Secretariat of Infrastructure and works that envisage the construction of a reservoir to curb flooding in the region.
