New Delhi: The work is going on in full swing for the instalment of explosives to start the demolition drive of the Supertech twin towers on the Greater Noida expressway. The first consignment of explosives was brought into Noida on Saturday.
This decision was taken a day after the Supreme Court ordered the demolition of the towers on August 28.
The explosives have arrived in Noida from Haryana’s Palwal under heavy police protection. The weight of explosives is about 325 kg. Earlier, officials said the explosives are kept at a facility in Palwal and will be brought from there in regulated quantities every single day to the demolition site in Sector 93A.
The apex court ordered the razing of the 40-storey superstructure building due to the violation of building bye-laws.
3,500 kg of explosives will be placed in approximately 9,400 holes drilled in the columns and shears of the twin towers’ skeletal structures.
No traffic movement will take place on the front road of the twin towers starting on Saturday. Meanwhile, extra security personnel have been deployed in the area and the entire area is being closely monitored by the police.
Supertech’s Apex and Ceyane towers are set to be demolished after the verdict of the Supreme Court last August. The structures had come up in violation of building norms inside Emerald Court society.
