Parking issues at Pune airport to continue

Pune: The parking problem at Pune airport is expected to continue at least till April 30 next year as airport authorities have no plans to talk to the Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) or private landowners to seek temporary alternative land until the work on the under construction multi-level car parking project is completed.

MP Girish Bapat on Tuesday chaired a meeting of the Airport User Consultative Committee and reviewed the status of the parking facility and new terminal building projects.

Pune airport director Santosh Dhoke told TOI that while they were trying their best to complete the car parking project soon, no plan was in motion to contact the PMC or private landowners for alternative land. “We can work on land that belongs only to the Airport Authority of India (AAI). As per the contract, the completion date of the car parking project is April 30 next year, but we are trying our best to complete the project early. Until the project is ready, parking issues will remain,” Dhoke said.

As per a press release issued by Bapat’s office, the car parking project was 65% ready and the new terminal building was 61% ready. “The MP reviewed both projects and expressed satisfaction on the progress of work,” an airport official said.
