Puducherry CM urges Centre to help expand airport runway

Puducherry Chief Minister N Rangaswamy has urged Union transport minister Nitin Gadkari to extend cooperation to his government for expansion of the airport.

While participating in a virtual conference on ‘PM Gati Shakti’, Rangaswamy, talking about the Puducherry Airport, said “the runway is presently 1,502 metres long and it needs to be extended to 1,828 metres”.

He also urged the Centre to establish an airport in Karaikal in view of the significance of the famous temple of Lord Saneeswara situated there. He said the Centre should also introduce train services between Puducherry and Karaikal through Tranquebar, Sirkali and Cuddalore segments in neighbouring Tamil Nadu.

Rangaswamy made a strong case for linking Puducherry with Yanam region of the Union Territory in Andhra Pradesh by extending the service beyond Kakinada. The extension of East Coast railway service from Mahabalipuram and Puducherry was another requirement of the people of the UT, he said.
