yOU ARE TO BLAME, Yeah but I do not think that it is the case for Sao Tom at the moment because they are still waiting for the oil money gushing in. For Malabo and Bata (all in EQ) there is a lot of construction (given the country큦 size)...but I personally really like the waterfront project in Gabon. It is so lovely!...and Gabon is a tiny lovely country, too

New International Airport in Libreville/Gabon

No photos: I will add them as soon as I will find them

Name: Aroport International de Libreville

City/Country: Libreville/Gabon

Location: "Malib 2" (20 km from the city)

Construction company: Bouygues (French) in coorporation with local Gabonese-French construction companies

Beginning construction: late 2007 (due to local Gabonese press)

Construction cost: 460 Million Euros

Personal remarks: The article is only in French. So I will translate a few features of the new airport:
- ultramodern and futuristic design
- hub of Central Africa
- two runways with the length of 4850 m each
- 18 aerobridges (also capabable of accomadating the new A380)
- an ultramodern shopping area with more than 70 shops ("une arogare marchandises")
- a control tower
- high tech equipment
- location is far from the city: right in the middle of a highly forested area due to security reasons
- jobs for 15 000 people

Considering the fact that Gabon has only got 1 million inhabitants the size of the airport is a bit out of proportion to me but nevertheless I can큧 wait to see it being built....but they are planning for the future...and for tourism

Additional information: (found in a French newspaper "La Liberation")

Le grand nouvel aroport de Libreville est une priorit selon Omar Bongo
(Liberation 28/12/2005)

Malgr un trafic arien faible, le Gabon est bien dcid quiper sa capitale d'un tout nouvel aroport ultra-moderne et futuriste, dont le projet suscite dj des remous parmi les dfenseurs de l'environnement.
Le prsident r釪lu Omar Bongo Ondimba l'a dit et rpt tout au long de sa campagne lectorale, le nouvel aroport de Libreville est une priorit. Un des "chantiers gnrateurs d'un grand nombre d'emplois" qu'il a promis sous les calicots pour redonner au Gabon, dixit sa profession de foi, "son climat d'effervescence et de dynamisme des annes 70".
Initi il y a cinq ans dj, le projet est ambitieux, puisqu'il vise rien moins qu' "faire de cet aroport le +hub+ de toute l'Afrique centrale", toujours selon le chef de l'Etat. Deux pistes de 4.850 m de long capables d'accueillir les nouveaux gants des airs de type Airbus A380, une arogare passagers susceptible de traiter simultanment 18 avions, une arogare marchandises avec plus de 70 magasins, une tour de contrle, des dpts de carburant, le descriptif technique du nouvel quipement est impressionnant.
Pour justifier ce chantier, les autorits gabonaises avancent d'abord des arguments de scurit. "Le gouvernement a dcid de dlocaliser l'aroport parce qu'il a t rattrap par la ville", explique le responsable du projet au ministre des Transports, Jean-Pierre Obiang Zu. "Sa situation actuelle ne lui permet plus de se dvelopper". Et de rappeler les riches villas construites illgalement le long de la piste ou la proximit "stratgique" de l'aroport des rsidences des principaux dirigeants du pays, "qui oblige les avions faire beaucoup d'acrobaties".
"Dans ces conditions, le gouvernement pense qu'il est ncessaire de dplacer l'aroport sur un nouveau site, plus souple d'utilisation", rsume le conseiller Obiang Zu. Il y a prs d'un an, le gouvernement a retenu le site de Malib 2, 20 km au nord de la capitale mais en plein coeur d'une zone forestire qui borde l'un des parcs nationaux dont s'enorgueillit volontiers Libreville. Ce qui inquite les dfenseurs de l'environnement. "Le parc d'Akanda est un refuge pour les oiseaux et la fort classe de la Mondah le poumon vert de Libreville", dplore le prsident de l'association Brainforest, Marc Ona, "y construire un aroport va causer un bouleversement cologique considrable".
Outre ces rserves "vertes", le nouvel aroport, dont le cot est affich 300 milliards de francs CFA (prs de 460 millions d'euros), suscite la franche hostilit des bailleurs de fonds du pays. "Cet quipement n'a aucune justification conomique car le trafic arien local n큖st pas trs fort", relve l'un d'eux. "Ce projet n'est pas une priorit, donc nous n'y participerons pas". Ce refus n'a pas entam la volont des autorits gabonaises, bien dcides mener le projet son terme au nom de la lutte contre le chmage. " Cet aroport sera une vraie ville qui va accueillir 3.000 emplois directs et permanents et qui va donner des emplois pour au moins 15 000 gens pendant la construction", corrige Jean-Pierre Obiang Zu

More background information on Libreville큦 new international airport. Sadly, the information is French (couldn큧 find an English article on it) but it says that a French construction firm called "Bouygues" discussed the plans for the constrution of the new airport in Libreville. Its design will be very futuristic due to the article and construction will take four years. In another article I got from a Gabonese newspapers it was said that the project is in the final stages of construction start. So let큦 wait and see....



La socit franaise Bouygues prsente au prsident gabonais la maquette du nouvel aroport de Libreville


GABON - 26 octobre 2006 - par PANAPRESS

La direction commerciale du groupe franais Bouygues a prsent mercredi Libreville au prsident gabonais Omar Bongo Ondimba la maquette du futur nouvel aroport international qui sera construit Malib II, au nord de la capitale.

"Le futur aroport correspond aux normes internationales", a dclar le directeur commercial de Bouygues international Jacques Bergeau cette occasion.

Il s'agit d'une structure trs futuriste capable d'accueillir le plus gros avion du monde, le fameux Airbus 380.

Il faut 4 ans pour construire cet aroport.

La construction du futur aroport permettra de dsengorger l'actuel Aroport international de Libreville (ADL) situ en plein centre-ville.

C'est en juillet 2005 que le chef de l'Etat gabonais a annonc le projet de construction de l'aroport de Malib II.

New complex in Sao. Tom e Prncipe including a luxury village, hotel, office building and casino and club

Quote:
Portuguese Pestana Turismo is expanding its international growth strategy and has increased its investment in S. Tom e Prncipe

Lisbon, 4th December 2006

Pestana Turismo is expanding its international growth strategy and has increased its investment in S. Tom e Prncipe. It currently manages the four-star Hotel Pestana Equador in Ilhu das Rolas.

The first and second stages of construction involve Condomnio Vila Maria, a luxury residential complex consisting of 81 villas. Condomnio Vila Maria is situated in a leafy, wooded setting overlooking the beach on the outskirts of the city of S. Tom. The two-, three- and five-bedroomed villas, each with its own pool, are located in open-plan gardens of local island vegetation in safe, modern, comfortable surroundings.

In a country where infrastructures are still pretty basic, Condomnio Vila Maria is equipped with emergency generators and a sanitation system to guarantee the quality of this very special environment. The spacious communal green areas are maintained by the complex's cleaning and gardening team. Sales so far have been very encouraging and construction and sales are now well under way.

In addition to this new complex, a new hotel is being built near Fortim de S. Jernimo. It's the Pestana S. Tom, a five-star hotel with 115 rooms (84 standard, 30 junior suites and 1 presidential suite), a restaurant and bar with a large terrace, a conference room with natural light and a sea view and a health club with a gym, sauna, Turkish bath and treatment and massage room. The hotel will have two outdoor pools, one for adults and the other for children. It overlooks the sea and there is direct access from the hotel. There will also be a jetty for pleasure craft. The hotel is surrounded by a magnificent garden planted with the luxuriant, tropical greenery so typical of S. Tom e Prncipe.

There will also be an office building with an area of around 3,200m2 and a covered car park in the vicinity of the hotel.

The finished complex will also include a world-class casino and club. The octagonal building overlooks the sea close to the hotel and Vila Maria. It represents a clear commitment to luxury entertainment and activities that is unique in S. Tom.

All these projects will be ready by the spring of 2008 and represent an investment of around 90 million euros. The complex is expected to create at least 620 jobs.
