The Haryana Urban Development Authority (HUDA) has completed more than half of the master sewerlines in the sectors being developed in Greater Faridabad across the Agra Canal.
The total length of the master sewerlines to be laid in Greater Faridabad is 44 km.
HUDA is developing Sector 75 to 89 in Greater Faridabad. The estimated population in these 15 sectors is going to be more than 6.5 lakh in the years to come.
The HUDA executive engineer, Bhupinder Singh said the total length of the master sewerlines to be laid in Greater Faridabad is 44 km and the estimated cost is Rs 55 crore. "Work worth more than Rs 32 crore has already been allotted. We have laid 23 km of the master sewerlines and work is in progress for another nearly five km long sewerline to be completed by June 30," he said.
Singh said the remaining part of the project is scheduled to be completed by June next year. Two sewage treatment plants (STPs) will also be set up in Badshahpur to take care of the sewage issues in Greater Faridabad. The land acquisition process for this is on, he added.
HUDA has decided that till the STPs in Badshahpur are set up, these sewerlines will be linked with the STPs of the Municipal Corporation of Faridabad. The sewerlines are being laid at a depth of 10 to 30 feet below the ground level.
The secretary of the Federation of Apartment Owners Association, Greater Faridabad, Umesh Kumar Prabhakar said in its affidavit submitted in the Punjab and Haryana High Court on May 20 HUDA has also made the position clear. "HUDA has affirmed in the affidavit that work worth Rs 32.19 crore has been allotted for laying the master sewerlines. A sewerline 23 km long has been laid and the remaining 4.85 km is likely to be completed by June 30," he said.
