Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh YS Jagan Mohan Reddy has directed officials, in a meeting held recently at his camp office, to complete the construction of Bhogapuram airport at the earliest.
The CM also said about the other projects which needs to be completed on priority. These include; construction of three ports and eight fishing harbours, Bhogapuram airport, construction of beach road from Bhogapuram airport to Visakhapatnam city, development of Kopparthi Industrial Cluster, construction of Metro Rail in Vizag and supplying drinking water from Polavaram to Vizag through the planned pipeline.
“The beach road works need to be completed to ensure quick transportation of passengers from airport to Visakhapatnam city,” Jagan said.
Instructing the officials to complete the works of Bhavanapadu, Ramayapatnam and Machilipatnam within two-and-a-half years, Jagan suggested them to look into the possibilities of building a port in Rambilli so that it would reduce the pressure on the Visakhapatnam port.
Officials said that they would finalise tenders and hand over the works of Bhavanapadu port by December 15 and works would begin in March next. The works of Machilipatnam port will be handed over by February 15 next year and works will begin in April next.
In the meeting, the officials also explained about the development works at Atchutapuram cluster and Nakkapalli Cluster of Visakhapatnam Node in Visakhapatnam- Chennai Industrial Corridor (VCIC). The CM directed the officials to focus on developing cargo facilities at Tirupati, Nellore and Kadapa airports.
The Bhogapuram greenfield airport is proposed to come up in 2,200 acres of land in Bhogapuram mandal, 45 kms from Vizag.
