Any body has any slightest hint as to what is the new proposed location for Pune Airport ?

Plot for new Pune airport finalised, says Ajit Pawar - Mumbai - DNA

Deputy chief minister Ajit Pawar said on Monday that although an international airport is being developed near Navi Mumbai, Pune too needs its own international airport. The state government has finalised a new location for the purpose and the process for developing the airport has started.

Pawar was speaking to the media after a series of meetings in the Council Hall. He said that he had a meeting with chief minister Prithviraj Chavan on Saturday about the proposed international airport for Pune. He said that the earlier location selected for the international airport was strongly opposed by local people. Hence, the state government has zeroed in on a new location which would be ‘less opposed.’

  • Any news on new airport location? Officials are still visiting different sites near Rajgurunagar area... A new airport is definitely needed for Pune as the old airport is so congested... Plus it cant be expanded...

  • Pune airport is akin to Swargate bus stand, so crowded and confused. New airport is really needed. It can't be at any random location either, since the planes need to land in a particular direction, so Rajgurunagar is a most probable location.

  • Pune Airport and Pune Metro are in discussion since last 5 years. With non Cong govt hope project moves forward. Ajit Pawar prolly bring Metro if govt approve one for Baramati as well :-) .

  • Forget about Airport and metro, BRTS (for example on nagar road) are in discussion since last 5 years.

    They'll discuss only BRTS , PMT etc in next 5 years.

    BRTS Project has been in progress (maybe slow but still going).. On paper Metro construction to start by 2017 for 1st phase.. Airport funds are already approved but due to unavailability of land it is stuck...

    However NH50 is going to be six lanes till Rajgurunagar and I hope they quickly finalize some land for the Airport...

  • I think they will mostly fix land near Khed-Rajgurunagar area. It's really huge piece of land there currently looked by Kalyani Forge I guess

  • Finally its official, NO international airport in Pune (Chakan)

    Pune’s search for a new international airport seems to have hit a blind spot with the proposed site at Chakan being officially dropped from the list of probables by the state government. A recent notification by the state government has renotified the over 700 hectares of land, previously identified as one of the proposed sites for the airport, for industrial usage. -

    Every year the "new proposed location" keeps changing. And airport metro ringroad etc for pune are still proposed.
    Instead we are stuck with BRTS which has created more problems than it has solved.

    Yeah. They're exploring Jejuri as well as shikrapur. They will explore shirur , ranjangaon in next 5 years. We've to forget about new airport.

    In last 5 years these guys didn't start BRTS ( example nagar road).

    Metro, ring road were proposed in 2008 and no progress in 2016.

    There is a proverb in Marathi.
    पुणे तिथे काय उणे

    Now it should be पुणे तिथे उणेच उणे
