Could the new sectors along Dwarka Expressway hope for HUDA water supply?

Posted: Jul 18, 2018     By City Spidey

Residents of new sectors near Dwarka Expressway have long been demanding permanent water connection. The Gurugram Metropolitan Development Authority (GMDA), in response, has sought permission from railway authorities to lay a water supply line across the track near the Dwarka Expressway.

At present, only three of 50 condominiums in the new sectors get regular water supply from government agencies. Hundreds of families have had to rely on water tankers in the absence of a dedicated water supply network.

But if the permission comes through, condominiums in Sectors 81 to 95 will be assured of regular supply.

“The GMDA has applied for permission from railways to lay a pipeline across the railway track. Once it comes, the entire stretch would be connected. We would be able to supply water in sectors 84 to 95 within the next four to five months,” confirmed V Umashankar, CEO, GMDA, said.

Water from Chandu Budhera water treatment plant will be supplied to the residents of these areas, he added.

For most of these sectors, the internal pipelines have already been laid out by the Haryana Urban Development Authority (HUDA), and once the master network is ready, supply will start.

According to the department of town and country planning, around 120 residential projects are under construction along the Dwarka Expressway. Residents have started living in 54 projects after the developer offered possession, but water and power supply from government agencies are still to reach these condominiums.

Only three complexes in the entire area have water supplied through HUDA lines.
