L&T starts work on integrated terminal at Chennai airport

Chennai: Larsen and Toubro has begun construction of a new integrated terminal at the Chennai airport as part of the Phase II modernisation project.

Officials of Airports Authority of India (AAI) said the company had started excavation work which will continue for the next six months; after this, the foundation work and other construction work would follow. The project is expected to be completed in mid-2021.

Estimated to cost around Rs. 2,500 crore, the integrated facility will have the international terminal at the centre and the domestic terminal on either side of it.

This meant that the old Kamaraj Domestic Terminal and the Anna International Terminal together would become the international terminal and the existing domestic and international terminals would be modified to serve as the domestic terminals on two sides, officials said.
