Tiruchirappalli: A special team, comprising District Revenue Officer, Joint Director of Agriculture, PWD and Corporation officials and airport officials has been formed to acquire land for expansion of the airport here, according to a top official.

Airport Advisory committee president MP P Kumar told reporters here last night that 510 acres should be acquired, of which 164.5 acres belonged to the Army. An alternate site would be given to them, he said, adding the other portion of the dry and wet land would be acquired.

Meanwhile an airport press release on Sunday said runway expansion would be undertaken in the first stage from 8000 feet to 9000 feet and thereafter to 10,500 feet in the second and 12,000 feet in the third stage. A visitor's restaurant and a railway reservation counter would also come up at the airport, it said.
