The HUDA is likely to change the site for the development of Metro yard in Faridabad. The step assumes significance in view of strong protest by the people of three villages where the Metro yard is proposed to be set up.
"We have selected three more alternative places for setting up of Metro yard in Faridabad," Haryana Urban Development Authority (HUDA) administrator D Suresh told Hindustan Times on Monday.
Suresh said, "Since the villagers are against the setting up Metro yard in Sector 20A area, the three alternatives are - Sector 20B, other part of Sector 20B and near YMCA Chowk close to Mathura Road."
Both Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) and HUDA had proposed Sector 20A for setting up of Metro yard, which triggered protests from the three villagers.
The villagers’ strong protest against setting up of the Metro yard in their villages forced the officials of DMRC and HUDA to undertake fresh survey of the affected area on last Friday.
