|A metro link improving access to the terminals, expansion of the new T2 terminal, a new taxiway and a tunnel under the runway for airside (the area within an airport's passport, Customs control and security checks) vehicular movement are being planned in the second phase of the modernisation of the airport.|
The total cost for these upgrades, to be completed between financial years 2016 and 2019, is pegged at Rs. 1,600 crore, including interest cost and the pre-operative expense of Rs. 341 crore.
