Noida: The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) removed the pillar, which was situated outside the Sector 52 metro station, as it was disturbing the traffic flow on Captain Shashikant Sharma Road. The pillar was part of FOB, which was constructed in 2019, but the underpass brought the pillar into the middle of the road.

The DMRC stated that it had written to the Noida Authority multiple times, requesting that the matter be resolved, but no action was taken. As a result, the DMRC made the decision to remove the pillar on its own. However, the Noida Authority has said that it will take legal action against the DMRC.

It took two days to remove the pillar. The DMRC closed the road and rerouted traffic. The DMRC personnel utilised a crane to remove the structure on Sunday. Traffic cops stationed outside the metro station diverted approaching vehicles from Sector 51 and Sector 71 to the elevated route, allowing them to access locations such as Sector 52, Hoshiyarpur village, and City Centre. According to the traffic police, several commuters used the underpass to travel from Sector 71 to City Centre and vice versa.

While justifying itself DMRC says that it was important to remove the pillar as it was disturbing the traffic flow. In addition, the DMRC has stated that it will work with the Noida Authority in any legal procedures.

The dismantling of the pillar has highlighted the issue of cooperation among the various entities involved in infrastructure construction. The DMRC and the Noida Authority should have collaborated to reach an amicable solution. However, the lack of cooperation has caused public inconvenience.

The elimination of the pillar is a good thing. It has increased public convenience and simplified traffic flow.
