Pulmonary tests to be done, before and after the blast, to assess impact of the dust and debris

Silvercity opens its gates to evacuated residents of Emerald Court. Utopia has also offered 50 free parking spaces to residents of Emerald Court and ATS Village. Swimming pools, overhead tanks and green areas have been covered by plastic sheets in all housing societies in Noida’s Sector 93A.

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, say experts.

The demolition will generate nearly 80,000 tonnes of debris; a huge mushroom cloud of dust. About 25,000 tonnes of the debris will have to be scientifically disposed of in three months.

Shockwaves comparable to one-third of a typical earthquake 

When the twin towers come hurtling down, an estimated 41,720 tonnes will hit the ground under the Apex tower, while Ceyane approximately weighs 18,150 tonnes.

Supertech’s twin towers, when they come cascading down in just 13 seconds from the blasts, separated by milliseconds, turn loose its foundations, will cause shockwaves comparable to one-third of a typical earthquake that measures one on the Richter scale.

The only element remaining to be connected is the final detonator — a 100m long cable that will connect the chargers in the structures to the detonator button. The flick of this switch will turn the towers into a pile of rubble in a matter of seconds, says Edifice Engineering.

The demolition will generate nearly 80,000 tonnes of debris; a huge mushroom cloud of dust. About 25,000 tonnes of the debris will have to be scientifically disposed of in three months.

Noida: One nautical mile of air space around twin towers briefly unavailable for flights 

One nautical mile of air space around the twin towers demolition site in Noida will remain briefly unavailable for flights on 28 August, the Noida Authority has said.

A nautical mile is equal to approximately 1.8 kilometres.

The Union Ministry of Civil Aviation has given its consent for this, the Noida Authority said as it oversaw preparations for the demolition of the nearly 100-metre-tall twin towers on Sunday.

"In view of the dust generated after the demolition, on the recommendation of the Noida Authority, the Ministry of Aviation has given its consent for the non-availability of one nautical mile of air space for aircraft to fly at the time of demolition," it said in a statement on Friday.

Earlier, the Noida police on Thursday banned the use of drones in city skies from 26 August till 31 August citing security reasons in view of the demolition of Supertech's illegal towers.

What will be the impact of dust on residents?

Supertech's illegal twin towers which are taller than the Qutub Minar will be demolished on Sunday, however, the health impact of the resulting dust on residents will be minimal as experts overseeing the demolition will take steps to control the impact.

According to Dr Mrinal Sircar, Head Pulmonology and Critical Care, Fortis Noida said, "When you demolish a big structure like that there will be dust and there would be some smoke because you are using explosives. So, the direction of the air matters. The direction of the wind should also be taken into consideration. Demolishing like this or rather an explosion happening in the open air is much safer than say underground mines."

The demolition of the Apex (32 storeys) and Ceyane (29 storeys) towers would leave behind approximately 35,000 cubic metres of debris that would take at least three months to be cleared.

New Delhi: The demolition in Noida is scheduled to take place at 2.30 pm on Sunday.

The demolition of the Apex (32 storeys) and Ceyane (29 storeys) towers would leave behind approximately 35,000 cubic metres of debris that would take at least three months to be cleared.

The go-ahead for demolishing the twin towers with explosives was given by the Supreme Court. The exercise was earlier supposed to start on 21 August but the court accepted the Noida Authority’s request and extended its date of demolition to 28 August.

The twin towers are set to be razed over grave violations of building norms. The top court had said that it was a result of “nefarious complicity” between the Noida Authority and Supertech and ordered that the company shall carry out the demolition at its own expense under the supervision of the Noida Authority and an expert body like the Central Building Research Institute.

The order had come on a batch of petitions filed by homebuyers for and against the 11 April, 2014 verdict of the Allahabad High Court which had ordered razing of the two buildings within four months and the refund of money to apartment buyers.

The Supreme Court has said that the date of demolition may be confirmed as 28 August, with a “bandwidth of seven days” between 29 August to 4 September, to take into account any marginal delay on account of technical reasons or weather conditions.
