NOIDA sets new deadlines for expediting infra projects

NOIDA: In a bid to expedite various infrastructural and development works in the city, Noida Authority Chief Executive Officer Ritu Maheshwari, held a review meeting with senior authority officials on Saturday, to take stock of the development of these projects and set new deadlines for all. The CEO directed officials of the concerned departments to strictly follow the deadline and finish the projects so that residents of the city can benefit from the infrastructure growth.

Detailing the ongoing and upcoming civil works, a senior NOIDA officer said that the construction work on a 5.5-km-long Chilla elevated road above Shahdara drain connecting the Mahamaya flyover in Noida and Mayur Vihar in Delhi has already been going for which the CEO directed officials to get the elevated road ready by December next year. "Once completed, the elevated road will provide seamless connectivity between Noida and Delhi while those travelling from Delhi to Greater Noida will need not to go through Noida," the officer said.

The under-construction new office of Noida authority in Sector 96 has also been given pace during the meeting. "Fifty percent construction work of the project has already been completed while tenders for electric fittings have been issued.

The authority will install 21,946 street lights and facade lights at various infrastructures that should also be finished by the same deadline.
