The Faridabad district administration has assured the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation of all help with regard to the Badarpur-Faridabad Metro project.
The assurance came during a meeting on Friday of a DMRC official and the deputy commissioner of Faridabad.
“I assured the DMRC official of all help from district administration and the police. The state government is taking up the matter with the National Highways Authority of India,” the deputy commissioner, Rakesh Gupta, said.
“I called on the Faridabad deputy commissioner on Friday,” Manoj Vajpayee, in charge of Badarpur-Faridabad Metro project, confirmed. He said work resumed on Friday morning and would continue at night. But sources in a consulting agency hired by the NHAI claimed that no work would be allowed at the site till its approval.
“When new projects are started, the initial going is not very smooth and some with vested interests create problems,” Vajpayee said, adding, “I urged the deputy commissioner to ask the police to ensure no law and order problems arise at the construction site.”
On the NHAI’s intervention, Vajpayee said, “We have cleared the doubts they raised in their letter.”
Construction of the 13.8km Badarpur-Faridabad Metro line had been suspended on Wednesday evening over the NHAI’s objections.
