The study, conducted in five estates in Pathanamthitta by an US-based agency , AECOM, has observed Cheruvalli and Laha estates as preferred locations for the project.
“The report has been submitted before the chief minister for the principal approval of the state government. The state government has reacted positively to the project and the decision has to be taken on the land for the project. Either the government should take over the land and hand over to us or we should purchase the land,” said Rajeev Joseph, managing director of Indo-Heritage International Aeropolis Pvt Limited The feasibility study was conducted in Laha, Cheruvalli, Kumbazha, Kalleli and Kuttikkal estates. The report said that the best suitable location for the airport project was Cheruvalli estate.
Since there are some cases related to Cheruvalli estate, the report has observed that the airport project could be executed in Laha estate as well. “In case of any legal issue in taking over the land from these two estates, then the third alternative will be Kumbazha estate.This is the same agency which is currently executing the Kannur airport project,” said Joseph.
