Mahagun Mantra residents seek resurfacing of 400 meter stretch of road
GREATER NOIDA: A 400-metre stretch of damaged and broken road in front of Mahagun Mantra society in Sector 10 has rendered it inaccessible for vehicles. Due to this, school buses have to drop children on the main road. Many owners also cite the damaged road as the main reason for not shifting to the complex.
Rajesh Kumar, a resident of Mahagun Mantra, said, “Our society is not in a good shape. Though the builders have given possession of flats after a delay of five years, the homebuyers have no option but to shift as they are burdened with heavy EMIs
“The road in front of the society is completely broken, dug up with potholes and very dangerous for the residents. As a result, school buses do not come to the society gate. Instead, they drop the children on the main road, which is quite a walk for residents and children,” Kumar adds.
Another resident, Silpi Mukherjee, said that the lack of good roads restricts children from participating in outdoor activities. “We need to take our children to the main road daily. Our children are getting restricted from outdoor activities, like cycling and playing in the neighbourhood, as a result of it,” she said.
When contacted, the general manager of Greater Noida Industrial Development Authority (GNIDA), AK Arora, said that the resurfacing of roads in the area will commence soon.
“The delay, until now, was due to the National Green Tribunal order on construction ban in November and December last year, and after that it was due to the model code of conduct for the state assembly elections from January onwards,” said Arora.
