Noida: Residents of high rises of Sectors 74 to 79 on Thursday called on Ritu Maheshwari, chief executive officer (CEO) of Noida Industrial Development Authority, to press for their demand for installation of traffic and streetlights in their residential pocket.
During the meeting, N C Dubey, a lawyer from Supertech Capetown, handed a memorandum to the top officer of the authority through which he drew attention of the officer towards monitoring traffic flow at a road junction besides North Eye, an incomplete high rise in Sector 74.
He called on the authority to install traffic light at the junction so that minor road mishaps could be avoided. Some minor mishaps happened at the junction in the past which went unreported.
Dubey said that the junction was one of the busiest in sectors 74 to 79. But there is no system to monitor traffic movement on the roads. One of the main reasons for commuters violating traffic rules on the junction is lack of traffic lights.
He urged the officer to initiate an appropriate action for solving the problem. He said, "We have requested the authority to install traffic light on trial basis to check whether it would solve the problem or not. It is necessary to monitor the traffic on the junction to avoid accidents."
The residents have also demanded installation of lights in the public park between Supertech Capetown and Ajnara Grand Heritage, high rises in Sector 74. They said that the park was opened for public months ago but it still lacks proper lighting and walking track for morning walkers.
Dubey complained that due to this anti-social elements roam freely in the park after the sunset. They create mess in the park despite densely populated residential societies standing besides the park.
After listening the residents' problems, Ritu Maheshwari forwarded it to the concerned officers, who directed the respective projects engineers to initiate appropriate action to solve their issues.
