Coronavirus no threat as Tiruchy airport terminal project on track for Dec 2022 completion

Tiruchy: Even as concerns are raised over the rise in Covid-19 cases delaying works, the construction of the new passenger terminal at the Tiruchy international airport, which took a hit during the earlier waves of the Covid-19 pandemic, is on track for completion by December 2022.

Senior airport officials said that they are already following strict protocols at the worksite and that their team has almost finished 69 percent of the new terminal.

This comes when during the first wave of the pandemic, the airport had taken special permission from the district administration and went ahead with some of the major terminal works by following Covid-19 safety measures. Though the airport managed some works then, the shortage of raw materials caused inconvenience.

In the second wave shortage of industrial oxygen affected the terminal’s roofing fabrication. But even during the time, the airport team kept the works going by taking up completion of the rest. Officials said this has helped them to finish about 69 percent of the terminal construction works this December.
