Meanwhile, a Mumbai-based company has proposed to demolish the Twin Towers. Actually, this company had demolished the illegal Maradu waterfront apartment in Kochi in January last year. The company will demolish the tower through the Waterfall Implosion Collapse Mechanism. This explosion will be such that it will cover a distance of only nine meters and it will not cause any damage to the surrounding buildings. It will cost more than ten crore rupees to demolish the twin towers of Noida.
Know what is the distance of other towers
Actually tower number 16 and 17 have to be demolished and they are 32 floors high. That is, their height is more than 100 meters. At the same time, on one side of Tower No.-17, there is Tower No.-1 with 44 flats of Emerald Court, in which people live.

With this, officials said that the building that was demolished in Johannesburg had a ground clearance (7.8 meters) and here it is nine meters. Told that the explosion will take a few seconds, but the entire exercise from preparation to removal of debris will take about 26 weeks. During this, the Cayenne Tower will fall first. Whereas Apex will be dropped on the Cayenne side by making a ‘lateral bridge’. Both these towers will fall inwards and the debris will fall into the cave-like basement.
Let us tell you that just as a waterfall falls on the ground from a height, similarly a building also falls due to waterfall implosion. During this, holes will be made in the columns, beams and walls of both the buildings for the explosion. Whereas the columns will be wrapped in geotextile cloth with a netting to prevent debris from flying around during the blast, which will reduce the building debris. Not only this, the dust clouds of the towers located in Sector 93A will go up and it may take 10 to 15 minutes to stop. An estimated 3000-3500 truck debris will be pulled out of the site.
