Sector 34 craves for signboards for a long time even when a large number of signboards are lying near community centre waiting for authorities to install them.
RWAs rarely get a chance to express themselves or share their hardships. Well, now you can do it in this column, where every week a sector’s RWA will get a chance to share its thoughts, concerns, etc.
SIGNBOARDS help people navigate and ﬁnd their destination easily. In their absence, visitors of Sector 34 face several hardships and are left on the mercy of directions given by locals. Authorities are also aware of this and have dumped many cemented signboards for the purpose, but due to its negligence, these boards have never been erected to show signs. Signboards have been missing in Sector 34 since its inception. A large number of diﬀerent societies like Nar Vihar-I and II, B-1 and B-3 Aravali Appartment, Nilgiri-I and II, himgiri and Dhawalgiri Appartments are located in the sector along with three markets, one church and several blocks where kothis are present.

Footpaths turn foul paths One must have seen vendors, beggars, pan shops encroaching footpath space, but in Sector 93, one can easily witness cow dung cakes doing the same. Instead of benefiting pedestrians, nowadays the footpaths are being used by nearby villagers to dry the cow dung cakes.
Stinking encroachment: Footpath encroached by cow dung cakes in Sector 93 t gc neWS
thiS not only makes the area stinky, but also endangers the lives of the residents as people are forced to walk on roads. it has been happening mainly on two roads of the sector for a long time. as the farm lands have turned into houses and the rest of the area is full of wild bushes, villagers seem to ﬁnd the footpaths, the only suitable place
to dry the cow dung cakes. Sudha Yadav, an old lady, who was putting cow dung cakes on the footpath said, “i do not get any area, where i can put these cakes. it will help me in making food. i don’t want to trouble anyone, but don’t have any option.” a large amount of money spent in construction of footpath seems to be going down the drain. “We are not able to walk on the footpaths because of
these cow dung cakes. We have many a times tried to tell the villagers, but they don’t listen. authorities should do something to stop this kind of encroachment as soon as possible,” said Samar khanna, a resident of Sector 93. as heavy vehicles and cars commute on these roads at high speed, any untoward incident can happen in the area anytime. “Who will be responsible if anyone dies while walking on roads?
the villagers should understand this while the authorities should penalise these people to stop this nuisance. i think if the authorities take action even once, the villagers will not encroach the footpaths again,” said manas aggarwal, another resident of Sector 93. mc tyagi, Project engineer, Work circle-Viii, noida authority said, “i didn’t know about this, but will get it checked.”
In middle of the road
Sewer line has been laid in the middle of a road in Sector 63. The manholes are also not levelled properly with the road. At some places, they are above the road while at some, below the road. t gc neWS
conStructed some months back, it took around four months to lay the pipeline. even after spending a lot of money and time, authorities have laid sewer line in the middle of the road, which can result in many problems. “Firstly, the diﬀerence in the level of manholes with the road is very dangerous. Secondly, if the line breaks due to any reason either the road will cave in or it will get dug up to solve the problem troubling several commuters. authorities have not done their work properly. they should have placed the line on the side of the road,” said manish khanna, a resident. Some suspect foul play in it. “in future, even if there is a small problem, the road would have to be dug up, which would inTHE GAME CHANGER
directly help the oﬃcials, who mint money by awarding contracts to contractors for same work again and again,” said Sachin Verma, another resident. the length of the line is around 700 m. “if we would have laid the line in the beginning, we could have laid it in the corner, but to save the industries, we laid it in the middle of the road. in this line, no leakage will happen and we will clean the sewer with super sucker machine,” said arun kumar Saxena, an oﬃcial of Water and Sewer department, noida authority. on inspecting the area, one can ascertain that a large amount of space is available on the roadside for the laying of the line. ak upadhyay, another oﬃcial of Water and Sewer department, noida authority said, “Firstly, we try to lay pipeline on the roadside, but if there is already a

line on the roadside or there is no space, we lay pipeline in the middle of the road. but we take permission for it as it is not advised. if sewer line is laid in the middle of the road, manholes and road should be at the same level. this should be ensured by the engineer overseeing the work. i will get these manholes checked.”
