Jharsuguda airport to be ready ahead of schedule

The development of Jharsuguda airport in Odisha will be completed by May 2018, an official said on Tuesday.
“We have decided to complete the construction of Jharsuguda airport before the timeline fixed. It would be completed by May 2018 instead of December 2018 — the target set earlier,” said Airport Authority of India (AAI) Chairman Guruprasad Mohapatra.
Jharsuguda has good potential for regional as well as intra-nation air connectivity, he said, adding that AAI would take all possible steps to develop it as a viable and vibrant airport, he added.

The development of Jharsuguda airport was discussed at a meeting held under the chairmanship of Chief Secretary Aditya Prasad Padhi here.

The issues relating to shifting of power line, water supply and road connectivity to the airport, deployment of security forces and fire personnel and forest clearance of balance land were discussed at the meeting.
