Glimpses of Indian heritage should be visible in the design of Jewar airport, directed by the chief minister
Noida, July 25 (PTI) Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has directed officials that the main terminal building of the Noida airport should look like a “reflection of Indian heritage”. This is a huge project of the state. The Chief Minister gave this direction while reviewing the progress of the proposed Noida International Airport. Sources gave this information.
Adityanath gave this direction recently during a review meeting of this new airport. This airport is being built in Jewar, Gautam Buddha Nagar. It is 80 km from Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International Airport (IGIA).
The modern airport is being built by the Switzerland-based company Zurich International Airport (ZIA) AG. It is being said that once completed, it will be the largest airport in the country. The development of the airport will cost around Rs 29,560 crore.
Earlier in December, the developer had selected a combination of Nordink, Grimshaw, Haptic and Stupa as the architects for the design of the passenger terminal. They were selected through a three-stage competition during June and August 2020.
Sources said the Chief Minister, while reviewing the progress of the airport in Lucknow on July 17, said that the architecture of the main terminal building of the airport should reflect Indian heritage.
Adityanath said that now it is for the officials to see how this will happen. Because the design should be attractive and at the same time it should also show a glimpse of Indian heritage.
