Chandigarh: The alternative route to Chandigarh International Airport in Mohali that has been proposed to cut down the distance for people commuting from Chandigarh and Panchkula will cost a whopping Rs 1,217 crore, revealed the techno-economic feasibility study conducted by Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC).

The 115-page report, a copy of which is with Chandigarh Newsline, stated that the route would be a combination of clover leaves, underground tunnel and main road lanes. DMRC was entrusted with conducting a techno-economic feasibility of an alternative route by the Airports Authority of India (AAI) that had been pending since long.

The complete plan, including how much land is to be acquired, its drawings, planning and implementation have all been submitted by DMRC to AAI. In the cost estimate, the road Link from Chandigarh (NH-21 End) to Chandigarh airport will cost Rs 1,097.99 crore and the clover leaves and tunnel together would cost around Rs 118.63 crore thereby bringing the total cost to Rs 1,216.62 crore.
