Chakeri Airport Kanpur
Now the third shift has also been started to complete the works of the new terminal being built at Chakeri Airport on time. While sharing the information, airport director BK Jha said, till now the contractors were working in only one shift here, but now on the behest of Uttar Pradesh Civil Aviation Minister Nand Gopal Gupta, the works are being completed in three shifts. We are trying our best to complete the work of the new terminal before 31st December.
Nand Gopal Gupta had talked about getting a case against the contractors.
After the displeasure of the minister, two shifts started and…
In fact, on November 17, Uttar Pradesh Civil Aviation Minister Nand Gopal Gupta visited the newly being constructed terminal of Chakeri Airport and took stock of the work being done here. Seeing the speed with which the terminal work is going on, the minister was very angry. Expressing displeasure, he said that the work should be done by December 31, otherwise a case will be registered against the contractor and he will also be sent to jail. Rajkiya Nirman Nigam will also be blacklisted. The contractor should double the number of laborers and work should be done day and night. Daily review of work will now be done through video conferencing. Do not compromise on the quality of construction works.
There is still a lot of work to do in the new terminal…
The expansion work at Chakeri Airport started in 2019. The terminal building is under construction and soon an ILS is to be installed to enable flights to land during fog and at night. At present, the survey work for acquisition of land by PWD is yet to be completed.
Night shift was also started after the displeasure of Uttar Pradesh Civil Aviation Minister Nand Gopal Gupta.
Get the work done before the election…
Uttar Pradesh Civil Aviation Minister Nand Gopal Gupta believes that there is an election in the coming few months. Election code of conduct will be implemented in a few months. This will slow down the work of the new terminal. In the meeting held on November 17 in the new terminal, Nandi said that in any case, a new terminal should be built by December 31. If it is not made, then action will be taken against the guilty officials and the contractor. A case will be registered against the contractor and he will be sent to jail.
There is a flight from Chakeri for many cities…
Currently, flights to Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore, Hyderabad are flying from Chakeri Airport. Soon there are preparations for flights to many other cities including Ahmedabad, Kolkata, Pune, but this is possible only when the work of expansion of the airport is done.
