Plan for a tunnel to Mumbai’s T2


MUMBAI
The airport here is likely to become the first in the country to have an underground tunnel for airside vehicular movement. A plan is under consideration to build a tunnel linking the domestic terminal to T2, the new integrated terminal, to improve operational efficiency and reduce delays in departures and baggage delivery.

A Mumbai International Airport Ltd  (MIAL) spokesperson said the plan had not been finalised. London, Hong Kong and Kuala Lumpur have underground road or rail lines passing under the airport — some connecting the terminals and others for general motorists.

The reason behind planning a tunnel for airside vehicular movement in Mumbai  is that it will reduce congestion on the perimeter road and apron.
