The Rs.14-crore work will be completed within a year

Hall will have slope conveyors and better illumination

CHENNAI: The renovation of the old arrival hall at the Anna international terminal will begin before this month-end.

The Airports Authority of India has allocated the work to a contractor. The Rs.14-crore work will be completed within a year, an AAI officer said.

It renovated arrival hall would have slope conveyors and better illumination of escalators and lifts as in the new arrival hall.

Another important feature would be the bathrooms. Unlike the new arrival hall at international terminal, a row of bathrooms would come up on one corner of the building, he said.

At the old arrival hall, Customs officials were still keeping their office because the room for the Joint Commissioner, Customs, was yet to be ready. “The work on the separate room for the Joint Commissioner is nearing completion at the new arrival hall,” the officer said.
