A large number of green trees are being cut to connect the bypass to the Delhi-Mumbai Expressway. In Faridabad, one of the most polluted cities, there has been a protest against the felling of trees. A letter has been written to Prime Minister Narendra Modi on behalf of the Save Aravalli organization, demanding not to cut trees. Environmental activists are also preparing to petition for this in NGT.
A new expressway is to be built to connect the Delhi-Vadodara-Mumbai Expressway with Noida, Faridabad and Ghaziabad. The expressway will start from DND flyover in Noida to KMP Express Way at Sohna, where Delhi-Mumbai Expressway will cross KMP. NDAI will construct a 6-lane road from DND flyover to Sector-37 via Kalindi Kunj, part of which will be elevated. After that the bypass road built up to Kail village in Faridabad will be widened to 12 lanes. The new Six Lane Road from Cal village to Sohna will be constructed. To cut the bypass road to 12 lanes in Faridabad, the work of cutting down trees on both sides of it has started. Which people are opposing.
Jitendra Bhadana, the founding member of Save Aravali, told that more than 4 thousand trees are being cut along the bypass in Faridabad. 18 authorities, including the Prime Minister, have been written in letter seeking intervention. He said that the NGT has also issued a guideline that if green trees are coming in the way of development work then they should be saved or transplanted, but this is not happening here. Hence petition will be filed in NGT within 2 days.
