The road leading to Mangalore Central Railway Station near Town Hall in Hampankatta was severely damaged due to poor laying of interlock tiles and it was posing a major problem to the pedestrians as well as motorists. Lot of unused space was lying vacant due to unscientific laying of tiles. Volunteers of Swachh Mangaluru Abhiyan using the new tiles and skilled workmanship re-laid the interlock tiles giving a new look to the spot benefiting the public.

Volunteers cleaned the premises of Taluk Panchayat Office in Hampankatta and the footpath leading from Hampankatta Clock Tower towards Nehru Maidan. The compound walls opposite Nehru Maidan were also cleaned. The posters were removed and walls were painted giving them a new look.
