^ Now thats unlike any Chinese airports I've ever seen. The signage and the color, plus style is very Japanese like.(Not a bad thing). Chinese are finally learning less is more and a more simplistic approach to airport interiors is so much better.

The maglev project was just suspended, but it has always remained on the gov.'s agenda to extend the existing line to Hongqiao Hub...it'll just probably go underground to avoid residents along the line...

No pics of the station yet, but its existence has already been officially confirmed, as you can see its sign is already put up there in that pic!

Yeah, that's what I was thinking. I guess the project is back on track again-- I just wonder where the line will go and how far they've come in the process.

From the pics, thats just the airport area, from the diagram we can see the train area is much bigger, can't wait to see that. This complex overall is huge.

Am working on Hong Qiao project installing the baggage handling system.
Most impressive building, and quite beautiful.
Excellent use of natural light into this behemoth of a building, with a nod to ocean liner architecture in GTC/Shopping mall.
Colour of Eucalyptus is inspired.
Great project to be involved in. There are 3 of us laowi on site and about 15K Chinese workers.
BIG job!
The building is in three sections, West terminal which is the main plane bit, GTC or General Traffic Centre, housing two subway lines and stations, in theory Maglev (although I believe the extension has been throttled by NIMBY"S so far) and the high speed railway terminal.
The whole thing is about 800m long (as big as the biggest building in Dubai, just on its side!)
The rail terminal is all structural steel, some 80K tonnes. Biggest single lift of a 100 tonne truss.
64 Ha of asphalt is on the elevated road system.
The elevated road that was going to impact on the construction was built of steel not needing formwork, thus huge scaffold to hold it up.
Expensive!
