Elevated road to be constructed from Udiapole to Court Circle is not getting enough approval from the town. Merchants and other people whose land/property is falling under the periphery of elevated road are already against this project.
RNT Medical College, in a meeting of the construction committee, raised this issue on Monday. In the meeting headed by President and Principal Dr. DP Singh, a number of senior doctors along with RK Mundra, Assistant Engineer of PWD, joined hands in opposing the elevated road project. Minutes of the meeting will be submitted with Municipal Corporation. It may be noted that RNT Medical College received a notice from Municipal Corporation to hand over 22 thousand sq ft of their land for the construction of elevated road.
Administration of RNT Medical College pointed out the hazards that can be faced by the patients in the hospital. Because of traffic on the elevated road, patients will not be able to sleep due to noise pollution. Harsh sound from vehicles is very likely to disturb mental peace of patients. If the land is given, then a large part of lawn which is in front of administrative building will be disturbed and trees will be felled for the road project which will again create a negative effect on the health of patients.
Students studying in the library will not be able to read in peace. The elevated road project will actually be responsible for decreasing the number of admission of students wishing to pursue medical line since there will be shortage of space to accommodate students.
It was also pointed out in the meeting that 44000 sq ft of land was taken ten years back by Municipal Corporation against which College was to be provided with land adjoining the college campus. But RNT Medical College is still waiting for that piece of land to be allotted to them.
