GREATER NOIDA: The proposed Jewar international airport project is gaining momentum. Days after chief minister Yogi Adityanath revived the project, Yamuna Expressway Industrial Development Authority (YEIDA) on Wednesday appointed engineering consultancy company RITES to conductan obstacle limitation survey (OLS) for the same. The move came in the wake of the state civil aviation department asking YEIDA to get the process started immediately.
According to YEIDA officials, they have received a letter from the director of civil aviation, Lucknow, on April 25, asking them to expedite the survey. “In September last year, we had advised the UP civil aviation department to carry out an obstacle survey of the land where the airport is proposed since we do not have any expert to do the same,” said Arunvir Singh, CEO of YEIDA.
