Except in a few stretches, land acquisition has almost been completed
Chief Minister Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy is likely to lay the foundation stone for the construction of the international airport at Bhogapuram in Vizianagaram district in January 2022.
With a clear indication to this effect from the Chief Minister’s Office, the district administration has accorded top priority to completion of the land acquisition process for the project that is expected to spur economic activity in the North Andhra region.
The proposed airport on the Chennai-Kolkata national highway is at a distance of 40 km from Visakhapatnam, 20 km from Vizianagaram, and 50 km from Srikakulam.
