Bangalore International Airport Expansion Shaping Up An Integrated Design Plan
A glance at the ongoing project expansion of Bangalore International Airport Ltd’s (BIAL) terminal-1 would resemble an unexceptional airport infrastructure expansion work. The taxi parking lots, area of passengers movement at the multipurpose arrival and departure centre, have been neatly demarcated by barriers segregating activities of project site without hampering the daily activities of the greenfield and busy airport. There are arrangements in place by putting up sufficient way finding signage, deployment of adequate staff from the airport operator. However, venturing inside the site area would present a different picture altogether of a complex infrastructure project that is being given shape by cranes of various capacities, as they form the vital integral construction machinery for the expansion project to materialize.
