The Indira Gandhi International (IGI) Airport, Delhi, India, will soon install CCTV cameras along the 1.3km northern access road, as part of a security upgrade programme at the facility.

The road, which includes a 360m tunnel beneath the runway 28, reduces the distance between the domestic terminals of the IGI Airport and Terminal 3 (T3).

The road has become a potential security hazard as it runs through the airside area of the airport and it has increased its perimeter, which requires extra patrolling.

The installation is expected to take place in few months time, according to hindustantimes.com.

The camera feeds will be monitored by the police and DIAL may also construct a new building at the airport from where the surveillance monitoring would be carried out later.
