Temporary Stone Scuppers:

In hill roads, it is customary to cut the roads from the hill-face and to open up the road immediately thereafter to traffic. Further improvements such as construction of the pavement are taken up gradually. In such cases, it is the practice to construct temporary stone corbelled scuppers immediately after the road is cut (Figure). These are eventually replaced by permanent structures.
