Las columnas que sostienen el techo, cada una es mas grande que el techo del british museum, o para referencia local es más grande que la sombrilla del museo de antropología.

AIRPORT CONSTRUCTION - THREE FIRST TENDERS AWARDED

Slowly but surely (with a delay of three months or so), the Mexico City construction process gives signs of life and hopefully this means a news flow in the next days...

The three tenders awardad were for LAND LEVELING (approx $US 100 million), BUILDING OF TEMPORARY INTERNAL ROADS (approx. US$ 35 million) and WASTE & MATERIALS HANDLING AND LAND DRAINAGE (approx US $28 million).

At the same time, 16 more tenders will be awarded throughout next year.


Cheers

So the T2 for the current airport was a complete waste of money? Do they have any plans what they are going to do with it?

Maybe a good idea turn it into one huge bus terminal as opposed to having 4 spread-out throughout the city.

There's already a large bus terminal nearby (TAPO).

The problem with having only one large bus terminal in the east side is that it will add at least 1 hour to buses going to destinations west and south of Mexico city.

Rumors say that T2 is going to be re-developed into a convention center or a mall.

Being from this city I should know something about the project, but I don't

Is it already under construction or they're just cleaning the land? If so, shouldn't the thread status should be changed to U/C?

The pics above probably belong to the Land Leveling stage. More information on the links of my previous post (quoted) below. These works will last almost one year, so the building construction itself won't start before next year.

Regards

Actually the land leveling works will run concurrent with the works for the main terminal and the landing strips. Once the areas of the terminal and one of the strips are cleared will be roughly at the same time the tenders for the terminal will be awarded, and work for it should start soon after. That should be around summer of this year.

Land leveling will continue on the rest of the land including all the support infrastructure and finally the final access roads. They will be wrapping up on February of next year and at that time we should already be seeing the foundations of the terminal building.

Well depends on how we measure waist of money. T2 effectively added some capacity to the airport. But since the construction of T2, the new airport should have been build. Traffic growth has been constrained because of lack of space.

Terminal 2 (T2), has been in service since 2007. The new International Airport is schedule to open in late 2020. So will have a 23 year service span. Not ideal, but most main terminal building, by the time they hit 20+ years, at least a major face lift takes place.

And that is not taking into account the almost inevitable delays in projects of this scale.

Except that from 2007 to 2020, there are only 13 years, not 23. Barely a decade old, and it will be decommissioned. Luckily it won't be a complete waste since every plan being considered for the AICM grounds considers a new vocation for that building. Obviously money will need to be invested to refit it to it's new use.

History is proving that not building the new airport back in 2004-05 was the real mistake. By now we would probably be seeing the second stage of the new airport being built. T2 was just part of that mistake, and in some way it was indeed wasteful as it was not the most efficient use of the resources.
