Members of Confederation of NCR Residents Welfare
Association (CONRWA) today demanded CAG audit into the finances of Delhi Noida Direct Flyway, alleging that the DND management was manipulating the accounts.
The members, who met Union Road, Transport and Highways Oscar Fernandes yesterday on the issue, also demanded the flyway to be made toll-free.
"We met Oscar Fernandes and demanded that the DND flyway accounts should be audited by CAG. The DND management is manipulating the accounts and showing huge losses. The minister has assured us that he will consider our request," CONRWA president PS Jain said.
Jain said the association has also requested to make the expressway toll free as toll plazas led to massive traffic jams causing inconvenience to commuters.
"Developers should be given other options to make income such as advertising or development of commercial sites along the expressway. Through this, they can recover the cost and also maintain the expressway," he said.
"Further, we have requested widening of National Highway 24 and 58 from six to eight lanes in view of the rising traffic volume and congestion being witnessed daily in Indirapuram and Ghaziabad area," said Jain. AICC general secretary Ajay Makan was also present during the meeting, he said.
