Now main thing is the terminal building, of which we are not aware that how much work been done on that side as we are just looking on the figures of land and air side works and some old photos , and for road from M2 Junction to airport that is maximum 4 kilometers has to be built, and as per some newspaper reports posted here work on that started on June last year,
if some one down there can do this great favor for all of us to take latest photos ( if possible take an extensive video coverage ) of that road towards the airport, and terminal building as well.

If they give the charge to Shahbaz Sharif then the airport will be completed within one year.

Please don't bring in SS in this discussion. You can not compare a small project like metro bus with a massive airport project.

SS is using all the punjubs nfc award funds in lahore. So just making only one line of metro bus is big deal.

On the other hand the federal government is using the new islamabad airport project as an excuse for big corruption so they are not intending to build the airport. Their aim was to slide the project 5 years so they had an big source of income

False colour image, post acquisition photo processing...photo taken by satellite.
Quite standard to highlight all vegetation as red.
Sensors can identify vegetation etc. See NASA images.
