Noida Authority on Monday directed the company that held the demolition, to remove the debris of Supertech twin towers from the site to wind up the work by January-end.
The move comes following a letter received by the authority from the residents’ welfare association (RWA), asserting the delay in clearing the debris, which was supposed to be completed by November 28.
Besides, the authority directed Edifice Engineering company to clear a damaged driveway of Emerald Court, which happened during the demolition, so the developer Supertech could rebuild it.
The company is digging out steel and iron bars at the base of the twin towers. RWA asserted that the company has already reached the permitted depths and further digging would harm the nearby buildings.
The Twin Towers were demolished on August 28 upon the orders of the Supreme Court. Three months were fixed by the court for removing the 80,000 tonnes of debris from the site.
The debris was supposed to get cleared by the deadline of November 28, but the work is far from over. Over 48,000 tonnes of 80,000 tonnes is supposed to be used to fill the basement surroundings, while 28,000 tonnes will reach the C&D plant for processing. Around 4,000 tonnes of iron and steel bars, supposed to be retrieved during the extraction process, would be sold by Edifice to revive part of the demolition cost.
The Emerald Court RWA recently claimed in a letter that Edifice was digging deeper without technical supervision near two towers Aster 2 and Aster 3, creating menace for their foundation.
RWA also added in a letter that Edifice Engineering was supposed to hand over the site to Supertech for building the driveway within 30 days. Then Supertech was supposed to construct and hand over the driveway to the residents within three months of the demolition.
According to the sources, a Central Building Research Institute report is required before breaking the Twin Towers’ basement raft. So, Edifice would have to wait for the institute’s approval before undertaking that part of the work.
A senior Noida Authority official said that they have heard all the concerns of RWA and instructed Edifice to wind up the work by the end of January. They have asked the company to reduce the number of machines to maintain the permissible limit, considering noise pollution. They have also asked Supertech to pay the amount for debris processing at the C&D plant and speed up the construction of the 9-meter passage.
