The Airports Authority of India has started working towards developing three new roads to the Lohegaon Airport in a bid to decongest the existing roads.
Recently, Sanjay Prakash — the DIG in charge of the western zone of Central Industrial Security Force — visited the airport on an inspection and expressed concerns about the traffic congestion.
Last week, airport director Ajay Kumar said the AAI is working towards new road projects.
“Currently, the Pune Municipal Corporation is in the process of acquiring land for main approach road — the proposed 30-metre DP Road from Sanjay Park to Airport Parking No.1. Land acquisition is on for another road, connecting Lunkad property to 509 Chowk. This road will act as diversion for the vehicles coming from Vimannagar, and going toward Vishrantwadi, Dhanori and Yerawada, and vice versa,” Kumar added. Demaryius Thomas Jersey
