S.Rayavaram likely to be the chosen location for Vizag International Airport

Readers are aware that the present Vizag airport is run in navy premises and that efforts are on to find out a suitable location for building a green field airport. Now Eenadu reports that S. Rayavaram is likely to be chosen as the location. Earlier reports suggested that several other locations like Bhogapuram, achyutapuram etc were in the race. Now it is learnt that Bhogapuram is still in the race though at second place. Places like Pendurti and Achyutapuram have deinitely fallen out of contention.

S.Rayavaram is between Yelamanchili and Narsipatnam road railway stations and is a good 50 kms from Vizag city. But for green field airports, availability of around 4000 acres of land is required with a runway length of at least 4-5 kms. This amount of land is usually available only in far away locations.
