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.

    NOIDA: A six-lane bridge under construction across the Yamuna, parallel to the existing Okhla Barrage, will be completed three months before the target date of January 2017. Rama Raman, chairman of the three development authorities, announced this in Noida on Monday and also inspected three other key projects in the city.

    Once in place, the new bridge on the Yamuna is expected to prove huge relief to the thousands who take the narrow Kalindi Kunj bridge to commute between Delhi, Faridabad, Noida and Greater Noida. Raman also reviewed three other important projects - remodelling of the Sector 18 commercial complex; construction of multilevel parking faciity in Sector 18; and widening of two Shahadara drains.

    After the inspection of the four projects, Raman said he has instructed his officers to fast-track them. "I have taken stock of the work being carried out at all the four construction sites and have directed officials to expedite work on all of them," Raman said.

    "I have asked my officers to instruct the contractors of all the projects to employ extra labour, put into operation enhanced resources and machinery and re-plan the target schedules," he said.

    According to Raman's directions, while the new target for the parallel bridge at Okhla Barrage is end-October 2016, the multilevel parking in Sector 18 will be ready by June 2016.

    The Rs 119 crore six-lane bridge across the Yamuna, parallel to the existing Okhla Barrage will be located about 120 metres to the left of the existing Okhla bridge when one goes from Noida to Delhi. The 574m long bridge will be supported on fifteen pillars with a 41 meter distance between two pillars and will have two carriageways of three lanes each. It will also have a central verge and pedestrian pathways on each side.



    The two bridge flanks being widened across the Shadara drain at Film City and Okhla Barrage will be ready by April and May 2016, respectively. The revamp of the existing two four-lane bridges to eight-lane ones has been hanging fire for several years. Two additional lanes on each side of the existing bridges will be constructed. Once the width of the bridges is doubled, commuters will enjoy a smooth ride to Delhi, Faridabad and Ghaziabad.

    The first phase of the revamp work being carried out on the Sector 18 market complex is over and the second phase will be launched next month. Remodelling work on the commercial complex is being targeted for completion within a year, said A.K Goel, chief project engineer, Noida.

    However, the sector 18 market area reconstruction work still has a long way to go. Authority officials said that they expected to complete it by 2017. The makeover plan includes proper and adequate parking arrangements, an efficient sewer network and covered drains. "Underground electrical cabling, shifting of transformers to an area under a park will be the major part of Phase II," Goel said.

    The multi-level parking facility in Sector 18, which is among the projects announced by chief minister Akhilesh Yadav in April 2013, will house six floors including two basements. Two basements of the facility had opened for parking on February 21, 2015, to house about 1,000 vehicles but an Allahabad high court order has stayed its use until completion.

    I'll be most happy if this is done but I have some reservations. The bridge columns have been in place for 2 years I think now. But I don't see any work on the bridge girder / road work.

    Besides this the connections to the bridge itself are not apparent or ready ie where exactly will this bridge connect to

    From Noida side it's still ok... mahamaya bridge and eWay can move traffic along

    But Delhi side at Sarita Vihar etc it's pretty bad and that is a bottleneck. Unless that is not resolved and traffic from both bridges converge into the general Sarita Vihar area - it's going to be worse than before...

    Does anyone know more about how this is planned exactly??

  • Ideal would be to make the bridges one way.But that does not seem the plan as of now.The Delhi side will end up on the red light before the toll a major bottleneck.I think this new bridge has been designed to cater to the traffic flow from res and commercial complexes situated on the expressway.

  • Friends, I understand Delhi side road will end at red light junction before Jasola right cut as one bridge on drain is terminating there
    CommentQuote
  • If the THICK pillar-base being Constructed on Yamuna ( next to Metro Bridge) is the one being talked about....
    then, for NOIDA , will it be more of Sector Road Connecting Bridge as it appears to be Far-Off from Existing Bridge:

    For Delhi Side, Kalindi Kunj Metro Station and Depot construction is in Full Swing and there is Hardly Space to Widen Further for a New ROAD

    Maybe this is the Plan -----
    OLD bridge (8 Lane) will be for Traffic from Delhi to Noida ONLY
    New Bridge will start off Near Shahdara Drain near Okhla Barrage ( where there is another bridge planned ) ..... take slightly Left Turn under Metro Pillars & then Cross Again Metro Pillars Yamuna End to reach Close to Toll Gates Red Light.....

    From there , Existing Road doesnot have much Space for Expansion ... Maybe Delhi has to plan a Road behind Kalindi Depot to reach Jasola / Shaheen Bagh RedLight Spot

    I have tried a Map for depicting the same:
    RED line is the METRO ( incl Metro Stations Named)
    Yellow Line is the new Expected Bridge & connecting points as per me..
    Blue Line is the possible Continuation of this New YAMUNA Bridge in Delhi

  • 'Water Metro' on Hindon to cut Noida Extn-Delhi travel time


    NOIDA: The Noida Authority plans to run a 'water metro' service on the Hindon river. The project, meant to provide water transport to commuters from Noida Extension (Greater Noida West) to Delhi via Mayur Vihar, will use boats for transport.

    Noida and Greater Noida industrial development authorities chairman Rama Raman said the travel from Mayur Vihar to Noida Extension takes one hour but by the 'water metro' it will take only 15 minutes. "So, apart from cutting the travel time, it will cut the traffic load," Raman said.

    Raman said the twin authorities' mobility plan was drawn up in a way that it can cater to the city residents for the next two to three decades. "Against this backdrop, transportation on water is a vital option," he said. "Our team is exploring the details and soon necessary steps will be taken to execute the project," he said.

    Given that Noida is surrounded by rivers, Raman said the Noida Authority always converted obstacles into opportunities. "We are converting these rivers into routes to cut travel time," he said.

    Noida has a history of water based transport. "Before urban development took place, Noida was a city full of water. Even locals say that Atta villagers (now known as Atta Market, near Sector 18) used to carry boats to their residences and use them to move to safe zones in the event of floods," Raman said.

    Saumya Srivastav, deputy CEO of Noida Authority, said, "We are already working on developing the Hindon riverfront. With the development of the Hindon river, we will start eco-friendly boats for transportation," Srivastav said.

    The Noida Authority DCEO said the boat service would cut travel time and that feeder vehicles would be offered at the destinations to enable the commuters to reach the nearest Metro station. He said it was a question of planning in advance to avert traffic jams.

    Srivastav said, if presently steps to deal future problems are not taken then it will paint a horrific picture. "Presently Crossing Repulik is not total populated and a few families have shifted to Noida Extension, where nearly two lakh units are proposed. Noida-Greater Noida Expressway is also experiencing massive housing projects. Once people will shift these units, it will create massive traffic jam on the city roads. To deal the problem travel by water is one of the best option," he added.

  • Noida to put property details online by April-end


    NOIDA: The Noida Authority is planning to make all property records available online by end-April 2016.

    According to officials, the project aims to bring all properties in Noida, whether industrial, residential, institutional or commercial, under its purview. Allottees have been demanding for such a service for a long time. This included Lucknow-based social activist Nutan Thakur, who had written to CM Akhilesh Yadav last week, demanding all property details of Noida, Greater Noida and Ghaziabad be put online without delay.

    Till now, an official admitted the Authority has managed to upload details of 129 group housing societies on its server.

    The online system will allow allottees to see the exact status of their property, due instalments, water/sewer charges, lease rent, interest, penalties, surcharge, etc. It will save them from standing in long queues.

    Once the government body goes high-tech, not only will allottees be able to access information about their properties, Authority officials will also be able to retrieve information about any property within minutes.

    Why approach everything with a negative mind set? If it is polluted so what,let them take it as a challenge and get it done.

  • One should be freely allowed to put his/her point across.

    When I read this - it was exactly what came to my mind also.

    Hindon is now really thin n polluted. Also in summers without rains it practically dries up

    It is not easy to clean rivers up. Mostly industry pollutes it and they are never shut down. See Yamuna - it is so so public and in the eye of politicians and powerful people and media and environmentalists but no has been able to do anything about it

    So I don't think this proposal is logical, especially in the absence of any details on river cleaning, width and depth of river and what to do in long dry periods.

    Let's wait for more news but on the face of it it looks a non starter
