Ever since the multi-level car parking facility was commissioned, the passengers have been complaining about the pile up of vehicles at the exit
The Airports Authority of India (AAI) plans to hire a consultant to suggest ways for smooth traffic movement within the Chennai airport premises after finalising the bids, which were invited recently.
After the multi-level car parking was opened, the premises has been choc-a-bloc with vehicles with delays and long waiting time annoying the passengers leaving the airport. “This consultant will be tasked with studying the movement of visitors and passengers to both domestic and international terminal throughout the day and night and give detailed recommendations and solutions to ensure there was no traffic congestion. The consultant will suggest if better routing was needed, look at the existing walkways, signage and see if there needs to be improvement,” an official said.
The consultant will assist the AAI till the ongoing phase II modernisation work is over and the whole integrated terminal becomes functional.
