It’s good news for the people of Noida.
The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) has handed over the road stretch at Atta-GIP Crossing near Atta Metro Station to Noida Authority and the authority has started road construction work there.
The Atta Underpass, which was completed two months ago but was not opened for public due to Metro work, would be operational in the next ten days.
Noida Authority’s Deputy Chief Executive Officer NP Singh said: “DMRC has handed over three fourth of the stretch and we have started metalling of the road. Rest of the stretch will be cleared by the DMRC in the next few days.”
He said with the opening of the underpass, Atta-GIP Crossing will become signal free.
“Sector 14 A flyover will take one more month. We have asked the construction company to get the structure’s soundness tested by an independent agency,” said Singh.
The contractor has assured the authority to complete the work in a fortnight.
The underpass is 585 metres long and it cost Rs 28.62 crores to complete it.
On both sides, underground tanks have been constructed and fitted with pumps, which will pump out the rainwater from the underpass. This would help check water logging.
