Bangalore, Nov 13: Karnataka Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa has assured a delegation of Confederation of Indian Industry members to take up work on connectivity to the new Bangalore International Airport coming up at Devanahalli.
Mr Yeddyurappa gave the assurance to CII Karnataka region members who called upon him today. Regional Chairman N Reghuraj told newsmen here that the CII had sought both short term and long term solution from the government for proper connectivity to the International Airport which would become functional by March next year.
Mr Reghuraj told newsmen that Mr Yeddyurappa had also promised to convene a meeting of CEOs in the next few days.
While long term plan for proper connectivity to enable passengers reach the airport without any hassles would take between five to eight years, as a short term measure the CII wanted the Government to strengthen the existing transportation and road facilities before March next year.
