Civil Aviation Authority selects site for Mansehra airport

MARCH 18, 2017

MANSEHRA:
The Civil Aviation Authority has selected a site in Tanawal area of Mansehra district for the construction of airport.

“As the CAA has chosen 6,000 kanals of land for the proposed airport in Tanawal area and the district administration has got the initial tranche of Rs450 million from the federal government for the project, I am optimistic that the entire exercise of acquiring land and making payments to landowners will be completed in time,” deputy commissioner Iqbal Hussain told reporters here on Friday.

The DC said the revenue department had also included the land of two more villages in the project and restricted the sale and purchase of land there.

He said the government was in the process of fulfilling formalities for land acquisition and once all that happened, payments would be made to the landowners.

Mr Hussain said the people of Tanawal had been facilitating the land acquisition and survey for the airport project.

Suspension of work on airport to be challenged

MANSEHRA:
The lawyer fraternity has announced to challenge the suspension of work on airport project in Abbottabad circuit bench of Peshawar High Court (PHC).

“This is a highly important project launched by previous government. An amount of Rs280 million was released for land acquisition. And if this project is scraped, it would affect not only people of Hazara but also of northern parts of country,” Arif Tanoli advocate, a member of District Bar Association, told reporters here on Sunday.

He said that he was going to move a writ petition in the PHC, seeking restart of work on that airport project in Tanawal area of the district.
