Instead of constructing the third launch page meant for Indian Human Spaceflight Program, ISRO appears to have shelved the construction of the third launch page owing to paucity of time.

Three years from now, India will be capable of taking humans into space. Works have already commenced at Sriharikota from where the human spacecraft will take-off. K Sivan, Chairman, Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO), said launch pad works are being carried out parallel at Sriharikota alongside consultations with international space agencies and other governmental departments on selection of crew members.

"We are currently at the discussion stage. Meanwhile, suitable modifications have to be carried out to the launcher GSLV Mk-III vehicle to make it human rated," he said replying to a question at the post-launch press conference on Wednesday.

Quote
He said at least two unmanned flights using human rated vehicle will be carried out before Gaganyaan mission to assess various parameters. The first unmanned flight will take-off around December 2020. Initially, the plan was to construct a new launch pad for the human space flight, but Sivan told the Express that due to paucity of time, one of the two existing launch pads is being modified to meet the requirement.

Gee, that's too bad - I wonder how this will impact the overall launch schedule?

So will it hopefully eventually get built later on?

How will this impact the evolution of GSLV-Mk3 into the ULV?
