A K Walia unhappy with speed, quality of CWG-related projects

Expressing displeasure over delay in Commonwealth Games-related projects, Delhi Urban Development and Finance Minister A K Walia today exhorted the authorities concerned to deploy more workers to complete the work by the end of this month.

During a visit to various CWG-related projects sites, being executed by Public Works Department (PWD) and Delhi Development Authority (DDA) in Trans Yamuna Area, Dr Walia was also unhappy about mounds of garbage lying over the roads leading to Games Village and Yamuna Sports Complex and NH-24, a statement issued here said.

Mr Walia was accompanied by Delhi Education and Transport Minister Arvinder Singh Lovely.

were not set right, it may harm prestige of the nation.

''This area is too close to Games Village where large number of foreign players and officials will be putting up. In case the things are not set right, it may harm prestige of the nation,'' the statement from the ministry said.

''The challenge is formidable and an extra effort and deployment of more workers will help in accomplishing the works,'' it added.

The site beneath the flyover on MB Road leading to Akshardham Temple also was not very pleasant with only few workers deployed to take up huge street scaping work on both sides of the flyover.

The road leading to Games Village was also found to be of sub-standard as large number of potholes were evident.

''Even the road near Akshardham Metro Station is giving unpleasant look. A large quantity of unattended work has been noticed,'' it said.

The Ministers also found the approach of the DDA engineers as casual and decided to take up the issue with the Vice-Chairman DDA.

Situation was somewhat similar in the Yamuna Sports Complex where greenery exercise was yet to be taken up by the DDA and swimming pool is far away from completion.

Transport Minister Arvinder Singh Lovely announced that DTC would install 1000 bus shelters from second week of July after proper levelling and construction of footpaths.
