Supertech twin towers to be ‘charged’ from tomorrow

The process to “charge” the twin towers — placing explosives in holes drilled in columns and sheer walls — will begin from Tuesday.

A high-level meeting of senior police officers, officials of Edifice Engineering and representatives of other stakeholders will take place on Monday to discuss the deployment of cops and other security arrangements at the site.

“The details are being finalised. Three DCPs — traffic, headquarters and central Noida — have been coordinating and chalking out the security and traffic arrangements. As the charging will go on for days, we will deploy a team of cops at the site headed by a senior officer,” said Love Kumar, joint commissioner of police (law and order).

About 3,700kg of explosives will be fixed into 9,462 holes over the next 15 days.

The premises, officials said, will turn into a fortress from Tuesday and only authorised personnel will be allowed to enter the buildings. CCTV cameras have also been installed on the premises to monitor the movement of vehicles and people round the clock.

Officials of Edifice Engineering, the company that will carry out the demolitions on August 21, and other stakeholders will also meet the joint CP to discuss the detailed security requirements at the site. Every authorised personnel will be issued an identity card and their access will be controlled through it. About 20 people from Edifice and its joint venture partner Jet Demolition, one local blaster and some 10 workers will carry the explosives to the twin buildings.

A team of 20 cops is likely to be deployed at the site. A monitoring centre will also come up nearby.

The explosives will be brought from a PESO-authorised magazine in Palwal on a daily basis. A UP Police team will escort the vehicle. Their counterparts in Haryana have not been involved in the process yet.

Edifice, moreover, has identified additional plots that would be used to dump the debris after the demolitions. However, the plan to cover the green area of Emerald Court and ATS Green Village on the day of the demolition is yet to be prepared.
