“We have assured senior officials that the airport project and the link road projects will be completed as per the terms of the agreement with the Zurich International AG, the Swiss company that is developing the project,” said Singh.

Goyal directed all agencies involved that the connectivity projects must be completed before the airport becomes functional next year.

The officials inspected the work on the air traffic control building, runway, and other areas of the airport in detail before directing that work be expedited at the site while ensuring all safety protocols.
