New traffic route at Chennai airport to be tried from today
If you are anyways planning to drive down to Chennai airport today or tomorrow anytime between 2 and 5 pm, you will have to follow a new traffic route to reach the domestic and international terminals.
The Airports Authority of India (AAI) is carrying out a trial run to open the central arm of a vehicular bridge on the airport premises. The authorities would put up a signage so that passengers are not confused. After the trial run for two days AAI will implement the new traffic arrangement permanently in about two weeks’ time.
As per the new traffic arrangement, passengers going to the domestic terminal will have to enter through the central arm and exit through the right arm. Those proceeding to the international terminal will have to take left from the entry point, use the left arm and exit via the central arm. An additional entry for the international terminal has been created for the vehicles coming from Tambaram. These vehicles too will climb the left arm of the bridge and exit from the central arm.
