Af­ter get­ting com­plaints about il­le­gal quar­ry­ing tak­ing place in the air­port core and non- aero­nau­ti­cal area, Radha vis­ited the sites of il­le­gal quar­ry­ing at Par­goan, Dungi, Kolhi and Kopar.

The of­fi­cials claimed that bar­ring the con­tainer yard area, about 80% land de­vel­op­ment work was com­plete in Sec­tor 25 and 25- A. Also, ap­proval from project-af­fected groups / so­ci­eties is needed for some de­vel­op­men­tal works.

The work to widen the re­tain­ing wall abut­ting Amra Marg is on NHAI.

“The joint MD re­viewed the sta­tus of land de­vel­op­ment works and is­sues re­lated to Push­pak Na­gar. She was told that out of 91 hectares, 75 hectares is com­pleted ex­cept some ar­eas ad­mea­sur­ing around 12 hectares. It has been left out due to vil­lagers’ re­sis­tance and about 22.549 hectare is un­der for­est clear­ance,” said Ni­nawe.
