Traffic troubles on airport advisory committee radar

Pune: The Pune Airport Advisory Committee stakeholders are expected to focus on the traffic problem in the Lohegaon facility and find ways to ensure it has solar power in the meeting slated for next week.
A source told TOI the meeting would be significant because the state civil aviation minister had visited Pune earlier this month and discussed the development and expansion plans of the Pune airport at length.
"The meeting is slated to take place in the last week of this month. Earlier, the advisory committee meeting was held once a year. But now it is being held more than once, which is a good sign considering that the facility is under expansion. There will be detailed discussions about the status of the work being done and the future projects related to the airport," an airport official said.
Pune MP Anil Shirole, the chairman of the committee, said all issues would be discussed in details. "Some decisions would also be taken," the MP said.
