With just 100 days to the Commonwealth Games, construction of several infrastructure projects seems to have reached its final stage.
While most road and flyover projects are nearing completion, the government has now shifted its focus to the Commonwealth Games village.
Delhi's Lieutenant-Governor Tejendra Khanna visited the Games Village complex in east Delhi on Friday and expressed his satisfaction on progress of work. The LG inspected interiors of the flats, their security and landscaping of the complex and its surrounding areas.
"I am satisfied with the progress made and 100 per cent confident that the work would be completed well within the timeframe. There is absolutely nothing to worry," Khanna told the group of mediapersons accompanying him.
The residential complex, spread across 27 acres has 34 residential towers with 1,168 flats. Emaar MGF, the developers of the complex, informed Khanna that nine towers have already been handed over to the Delhi Development Authority (DDA). The possession of the remaining 25 would be handed over by July 31.
Khanna said he has asked the developers to clean up the area surrounding the Games Village as well. "I have told the developer to remove scrap, level this plot of land and hand it over to DDA by July 5. The DDA will then take 15 days to complete landscaping. I'll visit the complex on July 6 to inspect the progress," the L-G said.
