CAAB’s Tk1,700cr radar project proposal sent back

  • Published at 11:56 pm November 3rd, 2016
“The ministry, in its recent meeting, did not approve the project because of higher cost,” said an official. After evaluating the project cost, the ministry asked CAAB to review the project, saying the project cost is too high compared to the original cost of Tk330 crore estimated in 2013. However, the project cost increased several times. CAAB has moved to install new radar system with utmost priority by 2017 to upgrade air traffic control and air traffic management in line with the standard of the International Civil Aviation Organisation guideline. Karim Associates, a company, was qualified for implementing the project by the Qualification and Technical Evaluation Committee. Once the ministry approves the project, CABB will send it to the cabinet on public purchase for final approval. A CABB official said though it is a priority project, it is stuck in bureaucratic red tape. The existing radar, which has become obsolete long ago, fails to manage air traffic properly, he added. Setting up in 1986, the raddar, sometimes, fails to detect air traffic uninterruptedly and is operated for only 12 hours a day, putting thousands of passengers at risk every day. The radar remains inoperative on Saturday.
