- Work for the new Navi Mumbai airport is in full force. According to CIDCO, the Navi Mumbai airport will be completed by end of 2019. CIDCO is the special planning authority for the airport project.
Though the airport will be complete by the said deadline, Minister of State for Civil Aviation Jayant Sinha, while addressing the annual CAPA (Centre for Asia Pacific Aviation) summit via video link on January 31, had said the Navi Mumbai airport could take four to five years to be operational.
In the meantime, another crucial project which is the Sewri-Nhava Sheva Mumbai Trans Harbour Link (MTHL) is in the works. This link will reduce travel time between South Mumbai and Navi Mumbai to just 25 minutes. Even the Metro line between Belapur- Taloja is expected to be completed by the end of this year.
