Major facelift of Greater Noida's roads to begin in Nov
GREATER NOIDA: Greater Noida Industrial Development Authority (GNIDA) will soon initiate a drive to repair and resurface a majority of the network of arterial and major roads across the city, which have become hotspots of repeated road fatalities.
According to officials of the Authority, the roads which will be restructured and refurbished include all the link roads connecting villages to cities, interior roads, Dadri-Surajpur-Chhallera (DSC) route, the 130-metre road connecting Greater Noida to Noida and Ghaziabad, link roads in Greater Noida West and all other major roads in the city.
The overall procedure of resurfacing will take around three-four months to complete and is expected to begin in November.
Chief Executive Officer, GNIDA, Debashish Panda said, "We have directed the officials of concerned departments to prepare a list of all roads that bear a torn look and causes problem for the commuters.
"Once a report is submitted to us, we will begin with the construction work. We will not compromise on carrying out any development work in the city, even if the authority faces a financial crisis," added Panda.
While carrying out the construction work at the busy roads, the Authority will also work towards easing the flow of traffic.
"We will ensure an unaffected flow of traffic on the roads, while carrying out the road repair works. The drive will be initiated collectively at all damaged roads. The repair works will include patchwork and resurfacing. Our top priority will be such roads which are used often by commuters and where the surface has crumbled completely," said a senior GNIDA official.
The Authority has also allotted a separate budget for resurfacing badly damaged roads in a few villages. "We will also focus on improving rural road connectivity and have planned that all villages across the city will have black top roads" added the official.
