The Noida authority on Wednesday said that it has expedited the work on all pending infrastructure projects like Faridabad-Noida-Ghaziabad (FNG), two underpasses, and a multi-level parking lot among others.
The chief executive officer (CEO) Rama Raman of the authority on Wednesday in ‘project review meet’ directed engineers to speed-up work on all projects, and improve functioning to dispose off public complaints on daily basis.
“CEO today has said that FNG is a very important project for realty sector as well as for residents, who are living around it. Therefore all the hurdles should be cleared to make way for early delivery of the FNG. He reviewed the progress of this project circle wise and resolved some of the issues,” said a senior authority official, requesting anonymity.
CEO directed concerned circle officers and engineers that they should promptly resolve all legal issues between farmers and the authority if possible.
The Rs 1, 000 crore, 43 kilometers long Faridabad-Noida-Ghaziabad (FNG) expressway project has facing several hurdles as some farmers have refused to give their land to this project. Besides, some local land mafia has sold out FNG land to people, who have built housing on it.
“CEO directed that since FNG has to be built as soon as possible, resolve all such cases and complete FNG, which will improve connectivity between NCR towns- Noida, Ghaziabad, Faridabad,” said official.
The Noida authority planned- FNG passing through this land way back in 1989 and started work in 1993.
The authority had already completed work on 16 kilometers long stretch out of 21, which falls in Noida’s jurisdiction. The remaining part of FNG lies in Ghaziabad and Faridabad. Since authority’s progress on this road stays very slow, the colonisers saw an opportunity and sold the expressway land illegally say officials.
SP Singh principal secretary of UP will review all infrastructure projects’ progress ahead on October 24 in Noida and on October 25 in Greater Noida.
“We are also preparing for principal secretary visit too,” said official.
