Itanagar: As part of an assessment of the Hollongi greenfield airport’s development, Civil Aviation Minister Nakap Nalo met on Tuesday, 20th August 2021.
The Papum Pare DC, the Civil Aviation Secretary, the Civil Aviation Director, the General Manager of the Airports Authority of India, the PWD EE, and the contractors building the airport’s runway and perimeter wall attended the review meeting.
Asked about Hollongi Airport’s timeliness, the minister replied, “The state government is committed to completing this project on schedule.”
It is estimated that 60% of the border walls have been built. The runway is also making good progress. Currently, only carpeting and drainage work remain on the approach road, according to Nalo.
According to Nalo, “the department has learned from the mistake” and “the required changes have been made.”
