12 million people will use the airport each year once phase one is complete, and by phase four, that number will reach 70 million.
Two highways connecting Noida International Greenfield Airport in Jewar to the Yamuna Expressway and Delhi-Mumbai Expressway would be finished by the end of March of next year, according to the Yamuna Expressway Industrial Development Authority (Yeida) on Friday.
According to Yeida officials, a 75m wide and 8km long link road that would connect Jewar Airport with the Delhi-Mumbai Expressway will be finished by March 24, 2024, with almost 50% of the work on this stretch already finished.
The paperwork to choose a company to build the second, 8.5 km connection road for freight between Noida airport and Yamuna Expressway are practically finished, according to Yeida officials.
“Work has been accelerated on the 8 km stretch of the 31 km road between Noida Airport and the Delhi-Mumbai Expressway in order to finish it before the anticipated completion date of March 24, 2024. We anticipate that the road will be passable by February of next year, if construction proceeds as planned. In Haryana’s Ballabhgarh, the road would also connect to the Delhi-Mumbai Expressway, improving connectivity to Haryana cities as well, according to Shailendra Bhatia, officer on special duty, Yeida.
When phase one of the airport is finished, it will be able to accommodate 12 million passengers yearly, and by phase four, that number will have risen to 70 million.
According to officials at Noida International Airport (NIA), the first phase will have one 3,900-meter runway with room for 28 aircraft stands and be able to handle 100,000 air traffic movements annually.
According to NIA authorities, a 100,000 square metre passenger terminal will also be built.
The Noida international airport is anticipated to open before the planned deadline of September 29, 2024, according to officials who have informed the Uttar Pradesh government.
According to NIA officials, the interior construction on the terminal building will begin three months after the work on the air traffic control building’s four finished levels, which will be followed by the completion of the structure’s two remaining floors.
Before the airport opens, “we want to have road connectivity there,” Bhatia said.
Yeida stated that the route will be 10.5 km long and be built in two phases, with phase one covering 8.5 km and phase two covering 2 km, between the Yamuna Expressway and Noida airport.
“We expect that construction on this 8.5 kilometer route will begin the following month because we want cargo and passenger traffic to stay segregated. For the road, with a 57 crore budget, we have already released a tender. Once we have enough land, we’ll soon extend this route by an additional 2 km. By the end of March 2024, the 8 km length will be finished, according to Bhatia.
