In an effort to improve connectivity between two cities of Noida and Greater Noida; the twin authorities have in principal approved the construction of our new bridge across through the River Hindon. These facilities will not only bring the two cities closer but also provide connectivity to Delhi, Ghaziabad and Faridabad. Each bridge will be built at an estimated cost of 55 crore shared by Noida and Greater Noida authorities. Work will start within month on the bridges. The bridges will be 210 meters in length and will have carriageway of 18.5 meters width on each side. Service road of 7.5 meters width will be built along the 8 lane bridge.
A first bridge will be constructed between sector 150 Noida to Greater Noida sector chi-phi with an 80 meter wide road.
A second bridge will be on the road between Greater Noida’s knowledge park 2 and 3 near the 75 meter wide road, which is planned to connect to Faridabad and Noida’s 150 meter wide road.
A Third bridge will be located from near LG roundabout in Greater Noida to knowledge park – 3, which connects to a 75 meter wide road near Hindon canal and road between sector 146 and 147 in Noida.
A fourth bridge between sector 1 Greater Noida Techzone-4 and sector 112 and 115 in Noida has already been constructed but has been planned to be extended by service roads on both side of the bridge.
All the bridges will assist in decongesting areas of Pari Chowk in Greater Noida and Noida-Greater Noida Expressway.
The Allahabad High Court upheld the justice of the land acquisition notice and also the award of compensation to landowners or farmers of Patwari village in Greater Noida, Gautam Budh Nagar. Nearly 1500 farmers were affected by the acquisition. Compensation of over Rs 500 crore has already been paid to the farmers and the majority are not against the acquisition. Construction work on the land has already started.
A huge number of writ petitions filled by landowners against the land acquisition procedures, a division bench comprising that there is no illegality in the award, nor can it be quashed on the grounds urged by the petitioners. The order was passed on writ petitions filed by several other farmers of Patwari village who had scrutinized the legality and validity of the award dated July 10, 2015 passed by extra district magistrate (land acquisition) of Greater Noida.
