GulfHindi English Desk: The inauguration of the third phase of the expansion work of the IGI International Airport will be conducted by the Union Minister of Civil Aviation, Jyotiraditya Scindia, on July 13. As part of this, the construction of India’s first elevated taxiway has been completed, which will contribute significantly to reducing aircraft noise.
The 2.1 kilometer long and 202 meter wide elevated taxiway has been constructed by Delhi International Airport Limited (DIAL). It is built on an 8-meter high bridge supported by 156 wide pillars, each weighing 90 metric tons. This structure is capable of withstanding earthquake and explosive shocks.
This newly constructed taxiway provides noise attenuation for large aircraft like the A-380, allowing two such aircraft to pass simultaneously. It features two lanes, each 44 meters wide, with a distance of 47 meters between them.
Once operational, Terminal 1 and Terminal 3 will be connected, leading to reduced aircraft noise and improved operations. This will eliminate delays in flight operations.
DIAL aims to achieve zero carbon emissions at the IGI Airport by 2030. The construction of the elevated Eastern Cross Taxiway (ECT) is part of the expansion plan of IGI Airport, which connects all three terminals.
