#PROJECT: DUBAI INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT EXPANSION

DEVELOPMENT OF NEW TERMIAL, CONCORSE AND MUCH MORE AT DUBAI AIRPORT.

Construction work for Terminal 3, concourse 2 and concourse 3 is scheduled for completion by 2006
Cost: $2.5 billion
Up to: 60 million passengers a year

Thanks to Dark Knight for the Details Below

CONCOURSE 2
Directly connected to Terminal 3, Concourse 2 is dedicated exclusively to Emirates. The building will include a multi-level structure for departures and arrivals at Dubai Airport incorporating 27 contact gates and 59 passenger-loading bridges. Additionally, there will be a direct connection to Sheikh Rashid Terminal located at the control tower structure. There is also a 300-room hotel and health club that will include both five and three star rooms. A further 10,000m² of commercial space will be home to Dubai Duty Free and restaurants. Concourse 2 will include five aerobridges capable of handling the new Airbus A380 Super Jumbo. The two concourse buildings will be linked via this airbus, enabling transiting passengers to move freely between the two buildings.

CONCOURSE 3
The third concourse has been included in the expansion programme to accommodate the increased number of passengers at Dubai Airport from the new A380 Super Jumbo.

Concourse 3 will be a scaled-down version of Concourse 2, incorporating climate-controlled lounges. It will have 27 contact gates; 12 gates will be for the A380. The two concourses will be connected via electric buses.

What does this mean exactly?

I heard from a guy who works in transport for the airport that the new parking which they're working on will be 6 storeys. Is it opening soon? And the airport will have a train underground to connect to terminal 3.
