Board irons out development bottlenecks
Jan 12, 2013, 01.41AM IST TNN

NOIDA: Several development projects were approved in the joint board meeting of the Noida, Greater Noida and Yamuna Expressway authorities on Friday. Even though the main focus remained on boosting connectivity and developing industrial clusters, the authorities even attempted to pacify agitating farmers by amending provisions related to land acquisition.

Noida Authority CEO Sanjeev Saran said rapid population growth has led to an urgent need to improve the transportation system. An additional 170 buses, including 20 semi low-floor buses and 50 feeder vehicles, will be started at the cost of Rs 40.5 crore. "The Authority will develop the city bus terminal in Sector 82 on 3.9 hectare with world-class infrastructure," he said.

Concerned over rampant accidents on Noida-Greater Noida Expressway, an Rs 15 crore Intelligent Transport System (ITS) will be installed to monitor and manage traffic flow.

To counter farmers' agitation, the board passed several amendments in the provisions to sort out abadi regularization, disbursement of developed land, enhanced compensation and inherited and non-inherited property issues.

"The land in Gautam Budh Nagar district was acquired in three phase in 1976, 1979 and 1997. Earlier, those farmers whose land was acquired in 1976 were eligible to get 5% abadi land, while those whose land was acquired between 1979 and 1997 were kept out of pool. The board has approved to grant abadi land to these farmers too," said Rajesh Prakash, administrative officer, Noida Authority.

"The minimum size of developed plots to be given to farmers whose land was acquired will be 40sq.mtr. The 5% developed plots will also be given to those farmers who were found eligible for plots below 40sq.mtr," Prakash added.

Around Rs 650 crore has already been disbursed towards enhanced compensation to farmers and the board has approved another Rs 450 crore. For village development work, the engineering department will not need approval from the land records department now.

The number of highrises in the city is expected to increase in the next two years, so there is a need of updated fire safety infrastructure. "The Authority will buy 72m hydraulic machines in case of fires in highrises," Saran said. A 1MW solar power plant will be developed on a 5 acre plot over the Sector 135-152 irrigation drain mainly for streetlights.

    May be it is linked to the elections but in the past they addressed this by promising freebies like laptops, tablets etc. However after Modi govt at the centre, started talking development, there is a paradigm shift amongst states towards development

    But still the pace of construction is unbelievable.I travelled towards Shopprix last week and could not believe the speed of work on the elevated road.It has now come upto DPS School now. The work is happening day and night. Same seems to be the case with metro

    The work on NH24 widening is also starting.The EPE is also being taken up. All these will start showing results in 2017 and by then this would be a great place to stay with unbeatable infra.I can see the signs on the ground.

    Also by 2017 most of these projects would be either complete or close to completion and no govt. can then stop them

    yes, you are right they are doing the construction at very fast pace and that's why I think its connected to elections. Because all of the things started in parallel like,

    - underpasses
    - flyovers
    - metro

    In Initial 3 years they did nothing. They want to show see we have done this much development before elections.

    Anyways whatever the reason, good to see the development.

  • Pls note that development of national highways there by NH24 comes under central govt, pls find link of article in time of india in feb 2015, where Nitin Gadkari had first hand experience of NH24, and promised to widen the same. Today in one of the news Channels he promised the same for Delhi Meerut road as well.


    NEW DELHI:
    Road transport minister Nitin Gadkari on Friday morning had a first hand experience of the traffic gridlock in NH-24 that connects Delhi with Ghaziabad and Noida, something that thousands of commuters face everyday. The minister promised to roll out the widening of this stretch up to Dasna into a 14-lane highway by the end of this year to decongest the corridor.

  • Joint board meeting of 3 development authorities of Gautam Budh Nagar on Dec 14


    NOIDA/GREATER NOIDA: A joint board meeting of three development authorities of Gautam Budh Nagar—Noida, Greater Noida and Yamuna Expressway areas—will be held on December 14. On the agenda are several sops for varied stakeholders, amnesty schemes and fast-tracking of infrastructure projects including approval for a new Metro route for the three areas governed by the respective development authorities.

    As per sources, Yamuna Expressway Industrial Development Authority (YEIDA)'s agenda will include approval for an urban multi-modal transport system and solution to problem of 21,000 allottees who are refusing to pay additional charges towards their properties.

    With the mobility plan finalized, the aim will be to establish a roadmap specifying and prioritizing YEIDA region's transportation needs and to formulate a multimodal urban transport policy. Once the Board gives its nod, a detailed project report will be formulated on the basis of which YEIDA will define the project cost before it is launched in phases. On the allottee front, the Board will have a final say on what needs to be done. The additional money being asked for from the allottees has to be paid to farmers, whose lands have been acquired in YEIDA and who have to be compensated.

    Noida on the other hand is likely to provide impetus to development of a 25-km river front area between the banks of the River Hindon and Yamuna with a focus on providing connectivity via waterways. A presentation was recently viewed for this proposed project by officials. This project is expected to be taken up on a war-footing once the Board gives its go ahead, sources informed. Noida will also approve an amnesty scheme for residents to pay pending water charges. This scheme is likely to come into force for three months starting January 01, 2016.

    The Board is also likely to put a stamp of approval for a new 10.92km Metro corridor between Sector 142 and Okhla Bird Sanctuary. Noida Authority was earlier mulling a tram service for this route. However, Noida Metro Rail Corporation has now approved the DPR for the Rs 2,127 crore corridor. Once in place, the track will bring Noida, Faridabad and Greater Noida closer to Delhi and will improve connectivity within the city. Delhi Metro Rail Corporation's appointment as a consultant for a turnkey project for the Greater Noida (west) route connecting to sector 71 will also seek the Board's approval on Monday.

    Meanwhile, Greater Noida is all set to push two long awaited projects towards completion. A presentation of both projects—Night Safari and Heliport—was made to the Greater Noida Industrial Development Authority (GNIDA) CEO on Friday. A scheme of leftover residential plots in developed sectors of Greater Noida is also likely to get an approval for launching in the New Year.

Under this option people will not be forced to leave their personal vehicles but we will encourage them for public transport," Raman said keeping that in mind there is stress on strengthening public transport system including metro, buses and trams in the city.

    "We will catagoriesed the traffic in the city. For instance, corporates, schools, industries, real estate, media, colleges etc. We can further intensify further catagories like corporates offices including, IT companies, industries, real estate, media etc. By reshuffling or slightly changing schools and offices timing, traffic burden at a point of time at a location will reduce," Raman added. Raman said that GB Nagar DM NP Singh is working on the project. After seeking suggestion from all stakeholders, final plan to be worked out and it is likely to be expect in new year.

    "Noida Authority, transport department, UP roadways, pollution control department, CREDAI, bus operator association, industries association, autorickshaw union etc will participate in the meeting. We are seeking suggestion from all section in the society. We do not want to impose anything on public. Everybody is a stakeholder and with all suggestions, plans will be finalized," Singh said that in the further course of action, individually meetings will be conducted with schools, coporates, RWAs etc to make an efficient plan.

    "We are planning divide Noida into zones and we will chalkout Noida pollution free plan zonewise because each zone has specific problem. There is need to address each zone specifically," Singh said. Singh said apart from timing reshuffling, other initiatives will be taken to reduce pollution in the city.
