T2 work begins at Kempegowda International Airport, with March ’21 deadline

Weeks after Larsen and Toubro (L&T) bagged the Rs 3,035.9 crore contract for the construction of the second terminal (T2) at Kempegowda International Airport, a ground-breaking ceremony was held on Thursday to mark the start of construction.
If the project is not finished before March 31, 2021, L&T and BIAL will invite penalties from the Airport Economic Regulatory Authority of India.
Terminal 2 will be built in two phases. The first phase, covering 255,000 square metres, will cater to 25 million passengers per annum (MPPA), while the second phase of T2 – still in planning stage - will be built for an additional 20 MPPA. BIAL has said that T2 is being designed as an integrated terminal for both domestic and international passengers.
US architectural firm Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (SOM) has designed T2, while Turner International will be the PMC for this expansive project.
