All senior officials, including NIAL and Yamuna authority CEO Arun Vir Singh, and senior IAS officer SP Goyal, who doubles as the state’s additional chief secretary for civil aviation, conducted the site inspection.
Following the inspection, NIAL authorities said that 7,200 workers are putting in 24-hour shifts to ensure that the project is finished by its target completion date of September 29, 2024.
According to the provisions of the contract with Zurich International AG, the Swiss business implementing the project, we have promised top officials that the airport project and the link road project will be finished.
Goyal also checked on the progress of the roads being developed to link the airport to the Delhi-Mumbai Expressway, the Yamuna Expressway, and other neighboring routes. Goyal gave orders to all concerned organizations that the connectivity projects have to be finished before the airport could start operating in 2019.
Before ordering that work be accelerated at the site while adhering to all safety regulations, the officials carefully reviewed the work being done on the air traffic control building, runway, and other elements of the airport.
The ATC tower has eight floors in total, six of which are finished, with the final two levels being finished by February 2024. The team used a lift that went to the sixth level to inspect the 30 m high ATC tower, according to Singh.
