As the day of demolition of Supertech twin towers in Noida’s Sector 93A comes close, scare among the residents in the neighbouring Emerald Court and ATS village is also increasing. Around 5,000 residents of the two societies along with more than 150 pets, have been asked to vacate their flats by 7 am. They can move in after the demolition is over. The officials supervising the demolition have also asked the entire security staff of these societies to move out of their respective buildings latest by 12 pm on Sunday.

The twin towers will be raised to ground at around 2.30 pm on August 28, leaving behind a whopping 55,000 tonnes of debris. However, apart from safe and security issues to the adjoining buildings, the demolition has raised a big concern for the environmentalists who fear there will huge air pollution.

An official of Edifice Engineering, the firm hired to demolish the twin towers, a total of 40 people, including blasters and trained workers, had started charging the Ceyane (29 storeys) and Apex (32 storeys) towers, and would complete the entire process by August 26, 2022. The team comprises of two Indian blasters and Edifice project manager Mayur Mehta and seven members of its South African expert partner Jet Demolition. Security has been beefed up across the region.

The Supreme Court had ordered the demolition of the twin tower – Ceyane and Apex erected by violating the building norms and restrictions.
