Distance to city centre and other landmarks[edit]

The distances specified in the article should be driving distance. Not aerial distance. I know for a fact that 3.7 km is not the driving distance. According to Mapmyindia, the T3 is around 5km (The access road is not updated, so it is approximate) and T1 is 7.5km from Thampanoor. Shall we use those numbers?

DileepKS(talk) 00:39, 17 February 2011 (UTC)

Agree with Dileep. Driving distances are to mentioned and not aerial distances. But I do not know which one is the exact driving distance - the one Dileep claims or the one Lower fourth claims. If either of you could provide sources for the same, it would be helpful. Abhishek Talk to me 06:53, 17 February 2011 (UTC) gives a driving distance of 6.7km from central to domestic terminal.

The new terminal is not updated on Mapmyindia. But gives a distance of 4km, which is on the bypass road where the airport access road meets. A quick estimate on google earth shows almost 1km more drive to the terminal. Hence 5km.

DileepKS(talk) 09:32, 17 February 2011 (UTC)

I also agree with Dileep. But note that the entrance of the new terminal is in front of the Ananthapuri Hospitals and it's ok, but the Central railway station is about 0.4 KM away from Thampanoor. That makes the distance about 3.6 or 3.7 again.

I also checked the distance on Google earth and it estimates about 3.78 KM. But since we have no reliable sources for the distance info, i think we should add the 6KM distance by the AAI site. BINOY Talk 11:10, 17 February 2011 (UTC)

Well, which point is considered the city centre? AFAIK, it is the circle right between the Rly stn and the central bus stand. But that kind of an analysis boarders on the ridiculous IMO.
The 6km number at AAI seems to be for the domestic terminal. Anyway, a fractional kilometre doesn't make much sense in these numbers. I suggest we use 4 and 7 respectively. I believe it is important to mention both, because one is almost the twice of the other.

DileepKS(talk) 11:26, 17 February 2011 (UTC)

Note that Wikipedia needs reliable references. There is no reference is given to prove there is only 4KM is to the International terminal.Also the International terminal was inaugurated recently and it didn't started fully functioning. So i suggest to use the 6KM distance from the AAI site. BINOY Talk 14:03, 17 February 2011 (UTC)

ok lets discuss. its clear in google earth the distance to intl terminal is 3.7 km and to domestic terminal is aprox 6 km Lower4th . Tal 09:32, 19 February 2011 (UTC)

I request you to read the existing discussion before posting your take. The distance should be driving distance, not aerial distance. DileepKS(talk) 03:29, 20 February 2011 (UTC)

i said the driving distance. the areal distance is only 2.72 KM. Lower4th . Tal 04:38, 20 February 2011 (UTC)

From which point to which point? MapmyIndia, which is GPS surveyed and very reliable, gives 4km from the railway station to Ananthapuri Hospital, and there is one kilometre from the hospital to the terminal. 3.7km is evidently incorrect.

DileepKS(talk) 09:41, 20 February 2011 (UTC)

Hi there, interesting discussion I would think. If Personal Experience is good enough for Wikipedia, here is my 2 cents. I have been to the new terminal a couple of times - accessing via the Ananthapuri hospital side ramp. The distance from the Hospital end up to the Drop-Off/Pick-up points is 1.1KM (as per my car's un-faulty trip meter). The ramp goes straight up before taking a left (L) into a wider road, it again turns L-R-R-L-R and you reach the drop-off. It is a similar distance back to the ramp entrance taking a S-R-L-R-R-L before going towards the Chakka side or the Hospital. So my assertion would be 1.1KM (+ or - 0.1KM which could be attributed to Speedometer Reading Error). The popular and main route to the Railway station from the terminal would be: Chakka R/A - Pettah - Pattoor - Vanchiyoor - Kaithamukku Bridge - SL Theater - Overbridge - Thampanoor (distance of this route according to Google Maps is 4.6KM). So that would sum up as Ramp Access (1.1KM) + Main Road (4.6KM) = 5.7KM. Now if you want the distance from Railway Station to Airport Terminal since it takes a slight different route via Ayurveda College to Kaithamukku because Overbridge is a One-way towards SL Theater, the distance is 4.7KM according to Google Maps. Kaithamukku-Pettah is the most-widely used route to the Airport from the Central Station. - Amazer007 (talk) 11:20, 20 February 2011 (UTC)

Distance to Technopark from airport terminals[edit]

9.4Kms from technopark as mentioned in the article seems wrong. For one, it does not say distance to which terminal. The other, on Google Maps, even conservative estimates from the Main Gate of Technopark to Ananthapuri Hospital alone shows 10+ Kms and to the older T1/T2 terminals shows more than 15Kms. Inviting inputs from senior editors to a possible correction. - MountainWhiskey - talk 10:23, 26 July 2011 (UTC)

Blacklisted Links Found on the Main Page[edit]

Cyberbot II has detected that page contains external links that have either been globally or locally blacklisted. Links tend to be blacklisted because they have a history of being spammed, or are highly innappropriate for Wikipedia. This, however, doesn't necessarily mean it's spam, or not a good link. If the link is a good link, you may wish to request whitelisting by going to the request page for whitelisting. If you feel the link being caught by the blacklist is a false positive, or no longer needed on the blacklist, you may request the regex be removed or altered at the blacklist request page. If the link is blacklisted globally and you feel the above applies you may request to whitelist it using the before mentioned request page, or request its removal, or alteration, at the request page on meta. When requesting whitelisting, be sure to supply the link to be whitelisted and wrap the link in nowiki tags. The whitelisting process can take its time so once a request has been filled out, you may set the invisible parameter on the tag to true. Please be aware that the bot will replace removed tags, and will remove misplaced tags regularly.

It says that there are two terminals but says there is a T1, 2 and 3. How is this correct? --Rsrikanth05 (talk) 09:59, 25 March 2015 (UTC)
