A team of experts have visited the site in Nagayalanka in Krishna district along with forest officials on Friday. They even visited the site allotted to Missile Launching pad near the sea coast.
A total of 154.42 hectares has been proposed for the project, covering test facility in above six hectares and technical facility in 130 hectares. The test site is falling in the limits of the Krishna Wildlife Sanctuary.
