Noida/Greater Noida: It took a lady’s loss of life and critical accidents suffered through her son for the Greater Noida Authority to get its acts together and take away over 20 illegal hoardings from the principle roads of Greater Noida West past due on Sunday.
Jaibunnisha (42), a resident of Haibatpur village of Bisrakh, got overwhelmed beneath the hoarding that fell on her and son Imran on Sunday. Imran is recuperating in a medical institution.

A drive on the Bisrakh highway until Parthala roundabout and beyond confirmed that there are umpteen selection of hoardings on the facets of these major roads.

On the principle highway between Bisrakh and Kisan Chowk, hoardings might be spotted near the Hindustan Petroleum pump, before Gautam Budh Balak Inter College, near Ace City, and so forth.

This, whilst just about 20 hoardings might be observed mendacity on a side once they have been got rid of from roadsides through the Authority which carried out a late-night drive for the same.

On the Parthala to Sarfabad highway, a 40-foot prime hoarding was once spotted opposite the Parthala roundabout while some other was once spotted out of doors the OIDB Bhawan in Sector 73.
