Nagpur: Airport Authority of India (AAI) has given the no objection certificate (NOC) to the metro rail stretch near the proposed new airport. The NOC was critical for construction of the metro rail elevated corridor near CONCOR siding and Khapri railway station.
The metro rail alignment is at-grade in Mihan area except for a stretch of about 800 metres, which is elevated due to presence of CONCOR siding and Khapri railway station. This area is in the safety zone of the proposed new airport and hence required clearance from airport authorities.
A proposal had been submitted by Nagpur Metro Rail Corporation Limited (NMRCL) to AAI. The airport officials conducted a joint inspection with NMRCL officers of the site and then granted the NOC. The work on at-grade section will gain momentum with this NOC. The construction of boundary wall of Mihan car depot is already in progress.
