NOIDA: Following its decision to speed up work on the Faridabad-Noida-Ghaziabad (FNG) corridor project, the Noida Authority has started an anti-encroachment drive along the site of the proposed highway to rid the area of all unauthorized construction and infringements. According to Authority officials, the very first day of the drive resulted in freeing at least around "10,000 sqm of land worth around Rs 200 crore."
The Authority plans to continue its drive throughout this week. "The site for the proposed corridor as well as the entire stretch around it is heavily encroached upon by people from neighbouring villages who intend to cut out illegal plots and develop unauthorized colonies," said an Authority official. "However, the Authority will not tolerate any such activity and the drive will ensure that the entire area is free of encroachments," he said.

Last week, Authority CEO Sanjeev Saran had directed the chief engineer and work circle officers to visit the project site and take stock of all obstacles coming in the way of the project. Directing his staff to treat the project on a "priority basis", Saran had claimed that all problems related to the project will be "resolved at once and the construction work will be fast tracked."
Though the Haryana government scrapped the FNG project years ago, the Authority has maintained that since the project is a part of its Master Plan 2021 and since it has already completed 50% of its own share of work, the work on the stretch between Noida and Ghaziabad will be completed.
A 16km stretch of the proposed 56km long corridor falls under the jurisdiction of Noida Authority. The 16km long link road begins at Chijarsi village near NH-24 and will pass through Sectors 142, 143B and 167,168 along the Greater Noida Expressway and end at Assdullapur village near Sector 168. The Authority claims to have already completed work on 8km of this stretch that links Noida and Ghaziabad and has also already spent around Rs 30 crore on the project.http://articles.timesofindia.indiatimes ... or-project
