NEW DELHI, INDIA (Metro Rail News): The Delhi Court refuted the plea that referred to inaction from authorities about some associated defects in the double-decker metro viaducts projects in northeast Delhi. The bench consisting of the Chief Justice of India D.N. Patel noted that the complaint registered was forming a part of the earlier disposed of plea and issued the directions to authorities concerned to investigate the matters of alleged concerns, and that’s why the petitioner was also free to go for a contempt plea in case of a grievance. Moreover, the other member of the bench, Jyoti Singh, added that the proceedings would not be revived again and dismissed the application.
High Court also directed the government of Delhi to consider the representation of petition filed by Jain Arogya of Naturocare Welfare Society and advocate SD Windlesh as per the government defined rules, law and policies. The petition contained the defects in the double-decker viaduct pink line of Delhi Metro Rail Corporation in Northeast Delhi because it will lead to the cutting of thousands of trees which will be a cause of inconvenience to people. However, the project has already gotten approval from the concerned respondents.
The leading cause of concern is the inherent defects of the project on road no. 59, and if it gets executed, thousands of 50 to 70 years of trees will get cut. The double-decker track will be having metro tracks on the upper deck and a flyover for vehicular traffic on a 1.4Km stretch between the Yamuna Vihar and Bhajan Pura stations.
As per the petitioner’s complaint, the project is quite poorly designed and technologically very poor and can easily ruin the thousands of crores of public rupees and create traffic problems if the project is not reviewed or modified.
