NH-24 widening to cost Rs 200 cr; water pipelines to be shifted

An estimate of Rs 200 crore has been made by the Uttar Pradesh Jal Nigam (UPJN) for shifting of the water pipelines running on either side of NH-24 to widen the highway. The pipelines bring water from Upper Ganga Canal near Masuri-Dasna to two treatment plants in Pratap Vihar and Siddharth Vihar.

Each pipeline is 14 km long which run on both sides of the highway from 28 km milestone near Masuri-Dasna till 18.5 km milestone near Pratap Vihar before entering into the treatment plants, from where water is distributed in Noida and Ghaziabad.

The National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) has asked Jal Nigam to shift pipelines one week before in order to start work on the highway.

The pipelines will be shifted to the service roads planned to be constructed on the sides of the widened highway.
