Work on temporary building of Halwara airport to start soon

Ludhiana: If all goes well, the work on the temporary building at the Halwara airport may be started in next one and half months as the local AAI officials are in the process of seeking approval about the same from their headquarters.
Recently, deputy commissioner Varinder Sharma, who had visited the site, where the civil terminal is to come up, had said that work on the internal airport would start in two weeks time. On May 23, the then deputy commissioner, Pradeep Kumar Agrawal, had declared in the presence of additional chief administrator (ACA) Glada Bhupinder Singh that the 161.27 acres required for the construction of this civil terminal had been acquired at Aitiana village in Raikot and the possession of the said land had been taken.
Giving details, a senior officer of AAI while asking not to be named said that though Glada had shared with them the draft coordinates of the land, which is a map related to four sides of the acquired land, they were still waiting for a signed copy of the same. He added that after they would send the same to the architecture wing of their planning directorate, it would make the drawing of the infrastructure to come up at the site.

An AAI officer said that they had sought the approval for start of work on 2000 sq m porta cabin (which is a temporary terminal building) from the AAI board and expect to get the same next week. He added that after they get the designs, they would give the same to the state government so that work could get started.
