‘90% work complete, Bokaro airport to be ready by May this yr’

Bokaro: As much as 90% of the expansion work in Bokaro airport is done and the rest will be completed within the next two months, officials said on Friday.

“We have set a target of completing the expansion work by May this year. The work is going on at a good pace and construction of the boundary wall is in its final stage with about 500m left, which will be completed soon,” Ranchi airport Vinod Kumar Sharma, who on Friday took a tour of the new airport complex, said. He added, “Now all that we are left with is levelling work and setting up of a dedicated fire station and they will be completed within the next 60 days.”

On Friday, Sharma met deputy commissioner Rajesh Singh and other senior district officials to deliberate upon the smooth execution of the remaining work. He also met chief general manager (aviation) Laxmi of Bokaro Steel Plant (BSL), which owns the airport, in this regard.

Incidentally, BSL has applied for an aerodrome license at the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA). Sharma said that once the license is obtained on time, the airport can start operating as soon as the expansion work is done.
