Noida: The opening of the Delhi Noida Direct (DND) Flyway was a windfall for the commuters of Delhi and Noida. However, moving out in the city after sunset can be hazardous for commuters as most of the street lights are not operating on DND flyway.
On Tuesday, Brajesh Sharma, a resident of Antriksh Golf View, Sector 78 tweeted, "Please help on the issue of DND led lightning. More than 95% are not working".

City Spidey talked to Sharma to know more about the concerns, to which he said, "Since last two years, DND is lacking functioning street lights. I have raised this issue many times to the department of Delhi and Noida authority but there has been no good response. I commute daily through this flyway to reach my office which is in South Delhi. It is difficult to commute at night with very few illumination."
Another commuter, Jitendra Kumar Bhel, a resident of Mahagun Moderne commuting daily through this highway to reach his office in South Delhi said, "I go to Delhi from Noida at around 8:30 in the morning. The entire DND is full of advertisements but the lights there are not working, making it prone to accidents. The flyway is used very frequently and it has become scary to drive there at night."
Rakesh Jha, another commuter and a resident of Antriksh Golf View 2, Sector 78, Noida said, "I was going to Jaipur on Saturday through DND highway. It was early morning so the street was looking dark with very few lights working. DND is the most common road to go to Delhi, almost thousands of vehicles go by this road daily. But these days, we are avoiding going by this road. The reason is there is no light during the night. You will find many advertisements there but surprisingly no one knows where the cost is being used. If you tweet about this issue they will say only one thing that your issue is forwarded to the concerned department".
