PWD Fast Tracks Umroi Airport Work

Shillong: The construction of the boundary wall at Umroi airport is nearing completion as infrastructure development gains momentum here.
The State PWD (Buildings) said the wall would be ready by October paving the way for other renovations.
Air service connecting the North East is likely to be kicked off from the airport under the Centre’s UDAAN scheme.
The airport which is a must for the landlocked state was stuck in a legal battle and recently the Apex Court asked the government to go ahead with the airport’s expansion. The Airports Authority of India will require around Rs 180 crore for the expansion.
