Faridabad, November 29
The project of the construction of the Rs 315-crore bridge over the Yamuna river to connect Faridabad with Greater Noida has emerged as the most-delayed and time-consuming project of the district.
With over seven years passed and five deadlines missed, the project is not likely to be ready by the next deadline of March 31, 2022. The foundation of the project was laid on August 15, 2014.
65 pc civil work done
65 per cent of the civil work is over and the remaining work is expected to be completed within the next four months. —Pradeep Sindhu, Executive engineer, PWD
Marred by initial delay of over three years after its foundation, the construction of the bridge over the Yamuna could have been fastened in February 2018 with the assurance of it being completed by December 31, 2019. The deadlines were later revised to March 2020, June 2020, December 2021 and June 2021, mainly due to the delays associated with the work.
Sources in the PWD claim that the deadline of March next year may also be missed if the work fails to gain momentum. Pradeep Sindhu, Executive Engineer, PWD, said 65 per cent of the civil work was over and the work was expected to be complete within the next four months. Admitting delays, he said the work was halted due heavy flow of water in the river bed for the past five months. — TNS
