GreNo West: Atul Marg in Techzone 4, a long road which connects Rise Police Chowki Gaur Chowk in sector 1 has become a road of problems. Residents of several societies such as Supertech Ecovillage, Panchsheel Hynish, Arihant Arden, and Valencia homes use this road as a shortcut to go to Gaur Chowk.
Here, Ace Aspire residents are most affected as the road falls right outside their society. Several buildings are under construction on this stretch. However, this is the only one where residents, nearly 800 families live.
Residents of Ace Aspire society allege that they have been highlighting the poor condition of Atul marg for a long time. They say that despite regular complaints, no action is being taken by the Authority. Among the major problems at the Atul Marg, as per residents, are open drains, ill-maintained green belts, insufficient street lights, improper disposal of garbage, potholes and dust pollution.
As per residents, the open drain is just about 100 meters away from their society on the Atul marg. Earlier, there was a problem of water remaining clogged in it which was later solved and the drains were cleaned. However, they are demanding the Authority to pave the drains as it creates an unsanitary condition.

We talked to a few residents of Ace Aspire society to learn their views-
Guru Das, a resident of Ace Aspire says, "We have requested the Authority to fix all the street lights on the Atul Marg, Sector 1. Half the lights are defective even after back-to-back complaints. Last week, a case of mobile snatching took at the Atul marg which we reported to the Police"
Residents further allege that they are facing severe dust pollution from the ongoing construction projects at Atul marg. They say that the rules of the National Green Tribunal are not being followed here. This is affecting the health of the residents.
NK Sinha, a resident of Ace Aspire says, "The NGT rules are being ignored during the construction works. Dust reaches ur home and flats. We are barely getting any fresh air as we can't afford to open our windows."
Residents from some other societies also shared their views. Rajni Tiwari, resident of Supertech Ecovillage 1 says, "I take this route to avoid the hanuman mandir circle. However, I curse my decision each time. This road is ridden with potholes, there are no streetlights. It definitely does not feel safe."
On this, CitySpidey contacted Amandeep Duli, ACEO, Greater Noida Authority, he says, "We have noted that residents from sector 1 are in problems. There were some litigation issues last year but the work has been started. We will give an update soon."
