Vijayawada: The Indian Air Force has cleared the Vijayawada-Rajahmundry National Highway for emergency landing of IAF flights.

A senior official of the National Highway wing of the Roads & Buildings department said that though the department has not received any official intimation from the IAF, “the condition of the road between Vijayawada and Rajahmundry is suitable for emergency landings. NH-45 which is an eight-lane road with service roads and flyovers is considered good with a thickness of around six inches”.

 

Retired Air Force personnel say that selecting roads for emergency landings is a common and regular process.

“The IAF has carried out a huge exercise to identify emergency landing points. Priority is given to the quality of the road and it not having obstacles. Top priority is given to roads in Naxal affected areas and coastal areas,” said J. Krishna Rao, a retired Air Force serviceman.
