BENGALURU: Elevated walkalators to be available at the Kempegowda International Airport (KIA) to make travelling smooth for passengers as they lug their baggage between the Terminal 1 and the parking lot.
Bangalore International Airport Limited (BIAL), the operator of KIA, had recently passed a tender regarding the construction of a 400-metre long elevated steel pedestrian walkway. It will be held 6 metres from the road level and comprised of freight elevators, staircases and moving walkways/walkalators to ferry passengers and their luggage trolleys in both directions.
“Parking facilities at the Bengaluru airport have been enhanced to accommodate more passengers. An elevated steel walkway with natural cross ventilation will be built, leading from P6 to P7 parking lots, with one connector from P4 & P5 parking lots, and will finally end at the pedestrian canopy in front of the terminal. The walkway will have a lift, staircase and moving walkways,” a BIAL spokesperson told a source.
For the walkways BIAL has also issued separate tenders for the installation of weatherproof Vertical and Horizontal Transport (VHT) units.
