Supertech Twin Towers Demolition: WATCH all LIVE action from Noida here
The twin towers - Apex and Ceyanne - are expected to crumble like a house of cards, with residents having already evacuated the neighbourhood by 7 am today
New Delhi: Just few hours are left before Supertech’s illegal Twin Towers in Noida’s Sector 93A – the tallest structure in India – gets demolished. The towers are expected to be brought down with 3,700 kg of explosives.
The demolition of the twin towers in Noida will put an end to the decade long battle between the builder group – Supertech and the residents around the twin towers.
The twin towers – Apex and Ceyanne – are expected to crumble like a house of cards, with residents having already evacuated the neighbourhood by 7 am today. They will be allowed back after 7 pm.
RWAs are getting pulmonary tests of residents done, before and after the blast, to assess impact of the dust and debris. Authorities have set up sprinklers, smog guns, pollution monitoring equipment and other devices at the site, but there will be no escaping the dust: experts
The demolition, taking place at 2:30 pm today (28 August), is likely to be a breathtaking spectacle with the mammoth structures being razed down to rubbles in less than just 15 seconds.
