Shouldn't there be a airport strip in ISRO area , so that any cargo can move by air.

By road, wont be a security issue ?
It's not possible or economically unviable even if possible to airlift things with span exceeding 5 meters in most cases. Cost is too high that it doesn't justify any kind of security.

Not just ISRO, large modules are always transported through sea and road in every industry.

Last time they bring a boiler completely by road and it took almost one year to reach kerala but this time they used recently inaugurated kollam port and this is the first heavy cargo handled by this tiny kerala port, probably in future ISRO and Brahmose will be the biggest user of this port, BARC also.navy also sometimes deployed small ships here

We once built a boiler and heat exchangers set in Gujarat and it took us bloody 8 months to reach Odisha. Throughout the entire route, we jammed routes, we had to remove electrical cables and poles in many areas.

At a place when a flyover bridge was not high enough for the heat exchangers loaded on our truck, we had to take permission of authorities to dig up road to cross that.

Better to have a dedicated road for this type of transportation.

1:03:15 As far as I know, that is the first public render of the IDRSS. Also note the "Shipborne terminal". Didn't know they were planning that also for Gaganyaan. Wonder if its going to be just an Indian navy ship or something else built for ISRO.
They used to charter civilian (SCI/NIOT) Platform Supply Vessels/ Research Vessels for carrying shipborne terminals previously.

BENGALURU: A team of researchers from Indian Space Research Organisation (Isro) and Indian Institute of Science (IISc) has developed a modular, self-contained device to cultivate microorganisms, which could enable scientists to carry out biological experiments in outer space.
In a study published in Acta Astronautica, the team has shown how the device can be used to activate and track the growth of a bacterium called Sporosarcina pasteurii over several days with minimal human involvement.
