Jewar Airport, the fourth largest in the world, will be directly connected to nine cities including Delhi. A multimode transport system has been designed to directly connect Jewar Airport to nearby cities. For this, the idea is to adopt three models of transport. It is expected that a final decision will be taken before construction begins.
This international airport being built in the jewar area of Greater Noida adjoining Delhi, will be the largest in the country and the fourth largest in the world. It is expected that once the airport is fully operational, it can become one of the busiest airports in the country. Currently, Indira Gandhi International (IGI) Airport of Delhi is the busiest airport in the country.
Jewar Airport and Delhi Airport will both be the most important airports of NCR. Therefore, the greatest emphasis is being placed on adding them together. The feasibility report of Jewar Airport also states that the maximum number of passengers coming here will be from Delhi, followed by Noida, Gurugram, Ghaziabad, Faridabad, Agra and Aligarh. In the Feasibility report, the maximum number of passengers has been reported from Delhi-NCR.
Airport to be connected to other cities before commencement
The Feasibility report also states that within a year of the airport's start, the annual number of passengers traveling from here is estimated to reach 50 lakhs. Therefore, the idea is to connect these cities directly to Jewar Airport. Before the start of Jewar Airport, there is an exercise to connect it with other cities.
The agency studying for this has submitted its report to the Yamuna Expressway Authority. The authority is studying the report. After this it will be sent to the state government. Work on this will be started as soon as the government approves the report.
According to the feasibility report prepared for Jewar Airport, 57.52 per cent of the total passengers arriving at IGI Airport in Delhi are from Delhi. After this, about 12 percent passengers from Uttar Pradesh adjacent to Delhi reach Delhi Airport. At the same time, 5.71 percent of the total passengers arriving at Delhi Airport from NCR cities are from Noida-Greater Noida.
These passengers should not have any problem in reaching the Jewar Airport and these passengers can reach the airport from one airport to another in a short time, for this it is necessary to directly connect Jewar Airport with IGI Airport of Delhi. This will also reduce the load of Delhi Airport.
Distance of UP-Haryana will be decided in 15 minutes
Two new bridges are also proposed to be constructed on Yamuna River in Sector 150 and 168 of Noida to connect Jewar Airport to other cities. This will reduce the distance between UP and Haryana to just 15 minutes.
Through these two new bridges, traffic coming from Haryana to Jewar Airport will be brought out. The drivers coming on this corridor will not have to face the jam of Delhi. About Rs 900 crore is estimated to be spent on construction of both new bridges to be built on Yamuna.
According to the reports, the Jewar Airport will be come in commencement in the year 2022.
