The airport is looking good - some amazing pics! Anyone have photos of the new aprons being constructed to accommodate the new Airbus A380 and anyone know who is doing the construction of these new aprons? Any pics or info would be appreciated.

IRT (transport system) station to be located a few meters from the main Central Terminal Building. Pedestrians will be able to use one of the two tunnels taking them to the station and parking area (should they not use the multi story parkades).
