Get set &...stop!
Projects may miss deadlines
21/08/2008

This will be the first time when India will swarm the Commonwealth Games. The pace at which different agencies are putting up the games-related-infrastructure in place does not gel with the time left for the games to take off. The construction and architecture plans of a number of game-related-infrastructure including hostel blocks/media accommodations are yet to be cleared by the Delhi Urban Arts Commission (DUAC) due to mistakes in the design plan itself.

A status report prepared by the Central Public Work Department as on May’ 08 shows that less than 50% work was completed in almost all the stadia. And only 47% work is complete in the new administrative block and the anti-doping laboratory, which are of utmost importance. The Major Dayan Chand National Stadium is only 25% complete. The chief secretary admitted that 42% of projects (including bridges and flyovers) may fail to meet the scheduled deadlines. Two vital infrastructure plans, the east-west corridor and an alternative route in place of the tunnel road project are yet to take off. Authorities, we might say, didn’t seem surprised. Irrespective of individual deadlines, all projects need to be completed by Dec ‘09. Ouch!
