Gautam Buddha International Airport Project becoming expeditious

The construction works of Gautam Buddha International Airport has expedited to some extent after the Chinese contractor company upgraded their management strategy. According to the officials, the project is running quicker after the company replaced the management structure.

Gautam Buddha airport located in Bhairahawa will be the second international airport in the country which will support the congested TIA airspace. But the pace of construction at the airport was earlier hit by back to back delays. Chinese Construction company Northwest; successor of the airport project were awarded the contract to complete the project by end of 2017 however, circumstances like the earthquake and economic blockade pushed the deadline to 2018.

The dispute amongst the Chinese contractor and its sub agent over the payments and illegal appointment of subcontractor had caused stress and delay slowing the progress of the airport. The issue had also caused the airport to hardly succeed to meet even three percent of construction progress target in past five months.

Civil Aviation Authority of Nepal analyzing the issue was compelled to appoint foreign research experts to study the case scenario. This step of expert recruitment made by CAAN had been linked with contract termination for Northwest Construction Company.

But the Chinese Contractors analyzing leggings had wisely approached Civil Aviation Authority for pardoning them and had also committed to working on the construction with new procedure and management team.

And now the company has been successful in dispatching new skilled manpower with new management team so, the project is expected to catch significant pace from now on.

On 5th of September 2017, Public Accounts Committee (PAC) organized a “Public Hearing” to discuss the present status on one of the National Priority Projects – Gautam Buddha International Airport Project (GBIAP) at Bhairahawa.

The Gautam Buddha International Airport is expected to be completed with the estimated budget of Rs6.22 billion and will be the gateway to Lumbini reachable from throughout the globe directly after the completion. The airport which is expected to be completed by July, 2018 will accommodate all type of aircraft that land on Tribhuvan International Airport and the airport can also be used as an alternative.
