Too late tag on Lohegaon new terminal road-and-transport-news



PUNE: Experts feel the decision to come up with a new terminal at Lohegaon airport has come too late. Aviation expert and analyst Dhairyashil Vandekar told TOI on Monday that the decision should have been taken much earlier. "Mid-last year, defence minister Manohar Parrikar stated that the authorities (Airports Authority of India) should immediately start planning the expansion of the Lohegaon airport after 15.84 acres of air force land was approved for it on lease. 
If there are talks now about a new terminal building as a part of the expansion plan, it seems a bit too late because the AAI will have to pull up its socks and work faster. In the case of the existing Pune airport, there has been a lack of controlled growth. It is high time that the authorities rectifi ed it," said Vandekar. Times of India
