Four projects of MCG that were stuck due to the ongoing lockdown or awaiting approval from authorities have finally received the green signal to start work from June. The projects include a cultural centre in Sector 56, a stadium in Wazirabad and two parking lots in Sadar Bazar and Kaman Sarai.
The civic body received the permission through auto-approval mode. MCG commissioner Vinay Pratap Singh said, “The idea to start these projects is also to give a push to the economy, which has been hit badly by the pandemic. These are decent sized projects and many labourers will get employment.”
Around 12.29 acres has been leased out to MCG in Sector 52-53A (Wazirabad village) to build a multi-discipline sports stadium, fulfiling a long pending demand of residents. The stadium will be the third stadium in the city after Nehru Stadium in Old Gurugram and Tau Devi Lal Stadium near Rajiv Chowk.
Officials said that these projects are in the last stages of tendering. “We are going to float tenders for the cultural centre and Wazirabad stadium. Once the tender is awarded to a firm, the deadline will be fixed for both the projects,” said Raman Sharma, chief engineer, MCG.
The project cost of the parking facility at Kaman Sarai is Rs. 101.26 crore and the project cost of the multi-level parking at Sadar Bazar is Rs. 44.56 crore. Both facilities will have 10 floors each, multiple electric vehicle (EV) charging system.
“We had started work on the Sadar Bazar parking lot but had to stop due to the lockdown,” said Gopal Kalawat, executive engineer, MCG.
