BANGALORE AIRPORT
29 MONTHS TO GO
Project moves on despite hitches
TIMES NEWS NETWORK

Devanahalli (Bangalore rural):
Despite setbacks like rain, Bangalore International Airport Limited (BIAL) chairman N R Narayana Murthy quitting and Union civil aviation minister Praful Patel seeking
redesign, the news on Bangalore’s dream infrastructure project is good. The foundation for the first building of the international airport has been completed!
The landscape has changed dramatically at the airport site in Devanahalli: Construction equipment and activity is visible in every direction, excavating, pouring concrete, piling pre-cast slabs, setting up boundary columns.
Over 25 temporary buildings dot the site now, housing everything from the excavated mud to the posh site offices. With 900 workers on site, the whole area is buzzing with sound — the warning moan of sliding concrete slabs along rails, the putter of tractors transporting material, the screech of metal upon metal.
But the most heartwarming sight is the airport’s first building — the 1.6 lakh sq ft technical and administration building. Not only is the foundation complete but also pillars for the walls have come up, a good two months ahead of schedule.
“We are also on our toes to pour the concrete for the terminal building, which is supposed to happen only by January 5. All we need is three days of a dry spell — we will get cracking like Mahendra Singh Dhoni,’’ chief projects officer Sivaramakrishnan S Iyer told The Times of India.
Excavation for the terminal building’s foundation is continuing amidst rain. The boundary wall is also clipping along at a merry pace, with slabs being fitted into the columns in over three km.
The only work that has been hampered is the levelling and cutting of the four-km runway. Like every runway in the world, the Bangalore runway has a dip and a high, with a height difference of 12 meters from its lowest point to the highest one.
Due to rain, work on creating this runway profile has not been possible. BIAL has moved all workers from the runway-taxiway-apron area to the technical building construction. But, runway work is also ahead of schedule and the delay would made-up by working round the clock, as soon as rains stop, Iyer said. There are also glimpses of what the terminal building will look like. There are two design elements on the site. A mock-up of the terminal building column — complete with granite covering — was being put in place on Friday, while a curving mock-up of the roof is already evident.

Fourth month report card

Devanahalli airport works picking up momentum

Quote:
Six months after work started on the site, this is where things are apparently moving fastest towards shape. After completing the basement excavation, workers are busy concreting the footings and columns. Reinforcement and water-proofing are being done, while work at the pre-casting yard for the terminal building’s roof elements is also on.

The construction work by Larsen & Toubro for the Rs 1400-crore project, set to an April 2008 deadline, in its first phase is also covering the apron, taxiways, control towers and access roads. Chief Projects Officer Mr Sivaramakrishnan S Iyer says cut-and-fill work is being done on 3.5 km of the four-km runway. The runway, designed as per International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) guidelines, is one of the two planned for the airport, but Mr Iyer says the second one is part of the final, long-term plan.

The foundation for the control tower, where the technical and administrative wings of the airport would function from, is over. So has rock excavation for construction of the Ground Support Engineering (GSE) building.

The Chief Projects Officer says except water for the construction work in the nearly 3,800 acre-land, the system is up and running at the site. “Right now, we are depending on tankers to bring in the water, but we’ll soon have the BWSSB supply of treated water from the Yelahanka plant. The pipelines for the supply are already in place,” he says.

The site also has two labour camps housing nearly 1,650 workers. “As the buildings start coming up, more workers, like carpenters and electricians, will be required on the site. We are making sure that the best of facilities are provided to the labourers, right from preferred food to clean toilets” says Mr Iyer. There’s a health centre, a shop and an STD booth within the camps.

I see that things are going on in full swing. You dont see much of that, but hopefully those idiots who are trying to block airport privatisation will be humbled by this and change their ways

Both phases of Bangalore airport to be completed simultaneously: Patel

Quote:
THE Union Minister for Civil Aviation, Mr Praful Patel, has said that both phases of the Rs 1,300-crore Bangalore International Airport will be completed simultaneously.

Mr Patel told newspersons on Saturday that if the airport consortium had executed only the first phase, it would not have been able to keep pace with the traffic projections.

Mr Patel said both the phases would be completed in 2008. He said the traffic projections had to be revised because of the increase in traffic. "The 2015 traffic projections have now been brought forward to 2008 itself because of the revised projections," he said.

Mr Patel said the Ministry had asked the consortium to make certain changes in the design of the airport as the Ministry was not satisfied with its original design. "The project will now be completed on schedule," he said.
What do you expect when the incompetent swines we vote into power take 15 years to sanction a bloody airport?

Cleared for takeoff

Quote:
In the city known as India’s Silicon Valley, 15 years is practically a lifetime. That’s how long Bangalore has been waiting for an international airport. But this Republic Day, India’s biotech hub can finally see the beginnings of one.

Large chunks of earth lie dug up as around 1,800 workers in bright yellow and blue safety helmets go about building what promises to be India’s first world-class airport, with a capacity to eventually handle 40 million passengers. Work began at the site—located 35 km outside Bangalore, in Devanahalli—in July 2005, and a skeletal steel structure is already up.

The project is among the first public-private partnerships in India and a Greenfield airport. In its first phase the airport will cater to over 6.7 million passengers per year, create 1,000 jobs per million passengers and have cargo capacity of 1.4 lakh tonnes per year. Apart from regular services, the airport promises travellers a hotel, shopping mall, tax-free shops, food courts and other convenience amenities.

While the project was conceived when Ghulam Nabi Azad was the Union civil aviation minister in the P V Narasimha Rao government, it began to materialise in 1994 and has since been shelved and reshelved more than once.

In the first phase, a 4-km runway, aircraft stands, a terminal building, technical buildings and other airside and landside facilities are being constructed. As one walks across the site spread over 3,880 acres of land, there is a definite buzz—even a sense of pride. ‘‘I have been involved in the making of a number of structures in Bangalore. However, this is the first that will be a landmark for Bangalore,’’ says Chief Project Officer Sivaramakrishnan S Iyer.

‘‘I am very pleased to be part of this prestigious project as this is a major infrastructure project not only for the city of Bangalore but also for the country,’’ says Jill Deviprasad of BIAL. ‘‘It will ease air traffic bottlenecks in this region of the country as it adds new capacity. To be part of this project is an honour and a great feeling.’’

With the target launch date being April 2008, work is on for 14-16 hours a day and is, till now, on schedule. The workers begin early in the morning and finish late in the evening.
PV Narsimha Rao is one of India's best and most unsung prime ministers ever. If it were upto me, I would have named the new Hyd. Airport in his name.

I dont have the higher resolution image, I got this from one the project consultants DORSCH CONSULT, which is in cooperation with the Swiss based Architect KMP, is responsible as OE/OA (Owner's Engineer / Owner's Architect) for 1st phase, there are some minor modifications to this design, as this was not accepted by the civil aviation ministry.

I guess Siemens is testing for the first time(any where in the world) their concept of Modular airports(read small terminal airports) and Bangalore is going to be the scape goat for this! This concept is based on rail road terminus.

Hey thanks for that input.

I am trying collect info sources for this proj. Please share any source of info that you may have.

I don't think BIAL has a website. They seem to have identified an agency to develop one:
http://www.peppersquare.com/company_...s=peppersquare

The BIAAPA, BMRDA websites suck big time. for a city known for IT none of the websites are of any quality.

Thumbs up

Excellent!

Thanks Vadi. Been looking forward to their new site.

Hopefully this'll mean regular updates from now on and more renders.

HIAL

Looking at the current progress, BIAL is way ahead of HIAL in terms of construction activity.

Lets see if HIAL picks up more activity in the coming months.

Looking for more sources at HIAL to get some info.

Bangalore’s new airport just got BIGGER
With air traffic projections for Bangalore soaring each time they are calculated, the new greenfield airport there is all set to undergo a major mid-course redesigning to complete by 2008 most of what it had earlier planned to accomplish in the second phase by 2015. The biggest change: ramping up the capacity of the terminal building to handle annual passenger traffic of 11.4 million by 2008 itself—this was the estimate for 2015—instead of the first phase target of 6.8 million.

BIAL approves redesign of international airport

Quote:
The board of the Bangalore International Airport Limited (BIAL) on Monday in-principle approved the redesign of the new international airport. However, the board has sought certain clarifications from the equity holders and the final decision is expected in the next few weeks.

According to a BIAL press release, the redesign of the airport project is based on the revision of traffic forecast done in June 2005. The study has estimated the traffic flows for the new airport on the “airport opening year” (2008) at 6.7 million passengers from the 4.5 million passengers estimated earlier. Subsequently, the figure is expected to climb to 8.5 million passengers in year 2010, the release said.

The redesign will see an increase in the size of the passenger terminal building, number of aircraft stands, more taxiways, passenger boarding bridges and the main access road enabling the airport to match the expected traffic in the coming years, the release added.

“The policy on civil aviation is expected soon. Therefore, the BIAL has decided to wait with the next steps in ground handling,” the release added.

However, the agreement with the selected partners in cargo should be concluded by the end of this month. In cargo, the three first ranked parties are the consortia consisting of Air India/ SATS, Bobba Group/Menzies Aviation and Swissport / Cargo Service Center.
