Min wants runway work after Vibrant

Ahmedabad: Gujarat’s minister of roads and building Purnesh Modi on Tuesday moved a proposal to defer the runway resurfacing activity at Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel International (SVPI) airport in Ahmedabad. The minister proposed that the runway resurfacing be deferred to January 20 instead of beginning it from January 3, 2022, as scheduled, due to the Vibrant Gujarat Global Summit (VGGS). The summit will be held from January 10-12, 2022, in Gandhinagar.

“In this regard, I am hopeful that even the Union government will take a positive decision,” said Modi.

SVPI airport authorities will require an approval from the aviation regulator, Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA), to reschedule the runway recarpeting activity. If approved, this will be the third time that the planned runway resurfacing activity is rescheduled. SVPI airport authorities may also decide to further defer the deadline.
