This Police Station in Allahabad Boasts a Beautiful Outpost Made From Waste Material

The Sangam Police station in Allahabad is likely to dazzle its visitors with how opulent and beautiful it is.

We’re not kidding.

The station boasts an outpost that provides visitors and police officers with a gorgeous space to unwind in and even more impressively, it is made entirely from waste and scrap material that was found in Allahabad Police Lines.

Sub-inspector Umesh Singh came up with the idea of refurbishing the outhouse when he was confronted with a number of repair issues at the station. From leaky ceilings to scorched summers, Singh decided that the gloomy former outpost had to get a makeover.

The space was painted with bright colours and potted plants were brought in to liven everything up. In order to reduce the heat absorbed by the station, the roof was covered with dry grass. Additionally, the inner rooms of senior policemen were transformed to look like high-end corporate offices and they installed a beautiful hut-like structure that provides shade to cops and visitors alike. Of course, no outpost is complete without comfortable chairs.

Speaking to Hindustan Times, ASP Ganesh Saha notes, “A modern, pollution-free and eco-friendly police outpost was a must at Sangam as people from all parts of the world visit the spot. This outpost is unique in the state and is a model for others to follow.”
