i'm afraid those are some old local residential areas near the Hongqiao airport, coz that's to the east of the existing terminal/runway. The new area for the relocated residents is supposed to be to the west of the site of the new terminal!

The airport is so close to the city, and the area around it has been highly urbanized with high density of residents over the decades.

Thanks for the information werico.
Too sad, that we dont see the site of the terminal and the railway station on the pic.

Am I right in my assumption, that these are already the basements of the new terminal piers, that we can see at the left of the pic?

Holy Carp! I've never seen a project so huge! Neat.

Something like that would never fly in the U.S. though.

The bottom line is, Shanghai expects its two airports to be able to handle 140 million by 2015. Who knows what the real figure will be when this is all done. I am just responding to someone who said he was disappointed that Shanghai can only handle 140 million. 140 million is HUGE. Pudong Airport will have by far the highest capacity in the world. And it will have five terminals because both of T3's satellite terminals look about the size of one of JFK's main terminal.
Right now London's airports handle a combined total of 140 million which is the most in the world by a long margin. Of course London continues to grow and will expand considerably with the huge new terminals and new runways in the pipeline. However it's nonetheless very ambitious for Shanghai, whose current total is so much lower, to plan to match this total by 2015 (or even to have the capacity to match that which is what they actually intend). I find this project very impressive overall. The architecture is simple and clean. Perhaps Shanghai's city planners follow SSC/SSP and are sensitive to all the justified criticism of the tacky "spaceage" designs of '90s Shanghai and have now decided to build more classy, elegant, and understated buildings? I hope so. It shows that Shanghai's tastes are maturing and becoming more sophisticated.

Wow, the new terminal is taking shape overnight!

Edit: Anybody know if there are going to build a connection with the existing terminal, or just tear down the existing one?

Shanghai Hongqiao Airport's $2 Billion Expansion Wins Approval

Updated: 2008-04-30 Source:Bloomberg

Shanghai Hongqiao Airport, China's fourth-busiest airfield, won government approval for a 13.9 billion yuan ($2 billion) expansion plan aiming to double its annual capacity by 2015.

The city's domestic airport plans to add a second runway and terminal, which will boost capacity to 40 million passengers and 1 million tons of cargo annually by 2015, according to a statement on the General Administration of Civil Aviation's Web site. The plan has been approved by the National Development and Reform Commission, China's top planning agency.

Shanghai, the nation's financial center, aims to surpass Beijing as China's biggest air travel destination as it wins investment from overseas companies including Citigroup Inc. and DHL Express. The country's overall passenger traffic will likely grow 14.5 percent a year until 2010, according to the nation's aviation regulator.

Shanghai's two airports will likely handle 120 million passengers and 7 million tons of cargo in 2015. Beijing Capital International Airport will expand capacity to 76 million passengers a year by 2015, according to the planning agency.

Shanghai Pudong International Airport added a second terminal last month, more than doubling the airport's capacity to 60 million passengers a year. It will be able to handle 80 million travelers annually by 2015 with the addition of two smaller satellite terminals.

Hongqiao airport handled 22.6 million travelers last year, mainly on domestic routes. About 28.95 million passengers passed through Pudong. Beijing Capital International Airport handled 53 million passengers.

Airport to be key to transport hub

By Dong Zhen | 2008-6-28 | NEWSPAPER EDITION

HONGQIAO Airport's new West Terminal will be completed by September next year, as a part a project to set up a multi-function transport hub in the area, according to the project constructor.

The multi-function transport project has started with the construction of an express train station. When completed by 2010, the transport hub will offer transfers between inter-city and express trains, the Metro, long-distance buses and urban bus services.

That will enable travelers to take a train from Beijing directly to Hongqiao Airport, which will be within an hour's Metro ride from Shanghai's business areas such as Xujiahui, People's Square and Lujiazui in Pudong.

The hub will be a highly efficient multi-transport network, said the project supervisors.

Hongqiao's new transport hub is expected to become a new urban center and cater to nearly 650,000 passengers a day, with maximum turnover of 1.1 million people.
