Authority cracks whip after Yamuna Expressway mishap claims 29 lives
Minister for ‘Vajrasana’ for drivers to beat fatigue, exhaustion on long routes.
A UP Roadways bus had today dashed against the safety railing at a high speed and plunged about 20 feet into a drain, killing 29 people.
Prima facie it appears that the bus was moving at a high speed and the driver fell asleep.
Officials said the bus fell into a large drain near Etmadpur and gushing water was making it difficult to conduct rescue operations.
The bidding was initiated after the visit of CM Yogi Adityanath this month to Greater Noida, where he had said that the area around Jewar airport should be developed as an economic city.
Now, a proposal has been forwarded to the UP Principal Secretary (Transport) by the Yamuna Expressway Industrial Development Authority (YEIDA) in compliance with an IIT-Delhi audit.
According to officials, the area was renamed after 25,000 allottees were given possession of plots and flats, including residential and industrial land.
While voting will continue till June 10, the state-owned firm still hasn't diluted certain conditions in its offer including relief from future tax liabilities.
The report recommended increasing the number of speed guns and cameras installed along the expressway.
The Yamuna Expressway Industrial Development Authority (YEIDA) will be developing ‘smart’ villages along the Yamuna Expressway that connects Greater Noida with Agra.
The police is trying to establish the sequence of events and trying to record eyewitness accounts.
Even before work on the proposed Jewar international airport project has begun, the Yamuna Expressway Industrial Development Authority (YEIDA) has allotted 561 residential plots near the site.
According to CBI officials, a six-member team reached Sunpura village in Greater Noida on Saturday to carry out an investigation in a bribery case pertaining to the YEIDA area.
