Tender for 3rd terminal at HSIA next month

Civil Aviation Authority of Bangladesh (CAAB) will float tender next month to construct the much-awaited 3rd terminal of Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport (HSIA) in Dhaka, reports BSS.

“We have already completed all procedures, including appointment of the consultant, for floating tender. We will be able to call it by second week of September,” CAAB Chief Engineer Sudhendu Bikash Goswami told the news agency in the capital yesterday.

The construction work of the new terminal will be completed by 2022 with an estimated cost of Tk 13,610.47 crore under the financial assistance of Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA).

The project got nod from the Executive Committee of the National Economic Council (ECNEC) on October 24, 2017.

Of the total project cost, Tk 2,395.69 crore will come from the state exchequer while the rest of Tk 11,214.78 crore as project assistance from the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA).

After completion of the terminal, passenger handling capacity of the country’s major airport will increase to 20 from 8 million and cargo handling capacity to 5 from 2 lakh tonnes annually.

The airport is anticipated to witness passenger traffic of approximately 12 million by August 2022 and up to 22 million by 2035, according to CAAB’s official data.

The expansion will include the construction of the third passenger terminal building known as Terminal 3, as well as a 5,900 square meters VVIP complex, 41,200 square meters cargo building and multi-level car parking building with tunnel, officials said.

The new international passenger terminal building is set to have a floor area of roughly 226,000 square meters.

Additionally, the project will see the construction of several exit and connecting taxiways, a parking apron in Terminal 3, new roads to connect the terminal with the airport road and a drainage system.

Various water treatment, power supply, rescue and fire-fighting facilities will also be built as part of the development.

Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport began operations in 1980 and is situated on an 802ha site in Kurmitola, north of the capital Dhaka.  Currently, the airport has one domestic terminal and two international terminals with a maximum capacity of eight million passengers a year.

The existing terminals of the HSIA will not able to accommodate the growing number of passengers due to capacity constraints.

In addition, Hazrat Shahjalal International’s existing cargo facility is also regarded as insufficient to accommodate the growing cargo volumes.
