New Delhi: Chief minister Sheila Dikshit has urged all concerned agencies to expedite work on projects that would open five new routes to the city's Indira Gandhi International Airport.
The five projects that are intended to provide connectivity to the airport, include the Dwarka circle underpass, northern access via Dwarka circle, northern underpass, Mahipalpur underpass and southern access via Dwarka express link.
Dikshi also inspected the new runway at the airport which is ready for commercial operations. She asked the PWD and the Jal Board to complete their airport-elated projects soon. The PWD has provided an assurance that the portion of the drainage system assigned to it would be completed and integrated with the portion already constructed by the airport developer company, GMR.
GMR officials informed Dikshit that the 4.5 km-long and 75 metre-wide third runway, capable of handling wide-bodied aircraft like the Airbus A380 and the Antonov An-225 are almost ready and final trials will take place on 21 August.
