PM Narendra Modi today laid the foundation stone of Noida International Airport in UP's Jewar. The event is being attended by over 2.5L people & a massive tent covering an area of over 12 lakh square feet has been constructed. #NoidaInternationalAirport…
The Noida International Airport will be UP's fifth international airport as well as Asia's largest airport. The airport is a key infrastructure project undertaken by the Yogi Adityanath-led BJP government in UP, which is gearing up for the Assembly elections next year.
The govt is projecting it as a "gamechanger" for the state, which would become the "logistics gateway of northern India." Meticulous preparations were made for the ceremony. Apart from the massive tent, a lounge for Modi, a helipad & asphalt roads to the venue were also set up.
CM Adityanath on Tuesday said Noida International Airport would bring in an investment of around Rs. 60,000 crore to Uttar Pradesh and create one lakh jobs. There will be many other projects like Film City and Electronic Park in the region, he added. #YogiAdityanath
UP govt on Thursday allocated Rs. 3,301cr for rehabilitation of people displaced due to the ongoing construction. This comes after reports claimed that hundreds of families, displaced due to the construction, have been living in tents as they hadn't been allotted any alternative.
The airport will reportedly be spread over more than 1,300 hectares. It will have a capacity to serve around 1.2cr passengers every year upon completion of the first phase. The first phase of the construction will reportedly be completed by 2024 and will cost over Rs. 10.05cr.
The airport will be India's first net-zero emissions airport. It will have a Ground Transportation Centre featuring metro and high-speed rail stations, taxis, bus services, and private parking for seamless connectivity.
