AAI to study flooding in mini airport locations in rain-hit Telangana

Hyderabad: As part of the plans to develop six mini airports in Telangana, the authorities have sought high flood level (HFL) particulars at the proposed locations.
In a communication to the superintending engineers, senior R&B officials have asked for the particulars as sought by the Airports Authority of India (AAI).
Director of Telangana State Aviation Corporation VN Bharat Reddy said the AAI had sought the details after they had asked the AAI to prepare a techno-feasibility report. “We expect the report to be ready by next month,” he told TOI.
In the recent flood situation in Telangana, many districts were battered, including places which were hitherto considered safe. That is why the authorities have asked for the HFL details, source said.
“There are no lakes near the area which has been proposed for a mini airport. The question of flooding does not arise, but we will be sending the report to the authorities,” an official of the R&B department in Nizamabad said.
