To speed up the work of much awaited Faridabad-Noida-Ghaziabad (FNG) corridor project, the Noida Authority has decided its planned anti-encroachment drive along the site of the proposed highway from December 6. The anti-encroachment drive which was proposed earlier in September month was to rid the area of all the illegal construction and infringements. Till now the authorities managed to free at least 10,000 sqm of land worth 200 crore.
In a meeting the CEO of the authority with chief engineer and work circle heads of the concerned area, they had planned to resume the drive from 6th December. The drive will help getting the proposed FNG corridor site as well as the land around its encroachment to pave way for the construction work of the 16km stretch of the corridor that falls under the jurisdiction of the Noida Authority.
One of the official of the authority said, the site for the proposed corridor as well as the entire stretch around it is heavily encroached upon mostly by people from neighboring villages who intend to cut out illegal plot and develop unauthorized colonies in the area. However we have decided to put an end to any such activity once for all. The drive that will last for about a week will ensure that the entire area is free of encroachments.
The Authority already made it public its decision to treat the project. Officials say that work will be on fast track.
