NEWS | Illegal buildings a threat to Ahmedabad airport

While Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel International Airport aims to compete with international and national counterparts on the infrastructure front, illegal construction on the periphery are road blocks on its way to be a state-of-the-art facility. Many of the constructions have been stopped while others have simply gone unnoticed. They are potential threats for an unwarranted accident.

As per sources in the airport, 60 houses near airport’s boundary wall have been identified as built without permission. It is claimed that 50% of them have been either removed or their construction has been stopped.
Small factories and residential structures are very close to the airport’s boundary wall. Anyone can access the runway using them. Even multi-storeyed buildings in not-so-far proximity have airport authorities looking over their shoulders.
