    Chennai airport gets Rs.700 cr twin tunnels
    In its quest to ensure smooth flow of passengers and baggage at the Chennai airport, Airports Authority of India (AAI) is roping in Metro Rail to carry out twin tunneling work in the apron area of the airport at an investment of Rs.700 crore. The airport is likely to have a satellite terminal soon to cater to the growing passenger traffic. In this connection, official sources said the AAI had held discussions with Metro Rail officials for two tunnels running underneath, one for passengers and another for baggage. The primary reason for a satellite terminal was the greenfield second airport getting delayed. Also, most airlines prefer the main parking slot for their aircraft since it is convenient, due to which the remote bays mostly remain unused. According to officials of Chennai Metro Rail Limited (CMRL), there is a need to know what runs underneath the airside before they begin to carry out the tunneling work and also the flight schedule on a day-to-day basis to plan the work schedule, sources added.
