No construction on the airport yet, but access works are in full swing. A drilling rig is currently on the island looking for sources of fresh water, works are underway on the haul route for heavy plant and 14km access track, 12km of which is now complete. Work on the temporary access jetty and temporary fuel storage tanks are now complete.

Basil Read the South African construction firm contracted to build the airport is slowly ramping up its presence on the island, heavy plant for the airport earthworks are expected to arrive in early July. From then construction of the airport proper can begin.

PPP (public-private partnership) for this airport?

Basil Reads contract - Valued at 3.1 billion Rand (£240m) - is to design, build and operate for a period of 10 years.

Don't know enough about the financing to say either way.

No but Basil Read are South African. St Helena uses the Saint Helena pound which is pegged to GBP.

A big event happened in the South Atlantic last Wednesday something the island has only been waiting for for approximately 500 years...

The ro-ro ship NP Glory docked at the new wharf in Ruperts bay to deliver the heavy plant for the airport earthworks. Believe it or not this is said to be the first time a ship has ever docked at St Helena.

I hope they succeed. One of the biggest downers of our time is the de-population of smaller places.
For the world and countries to work, all people can't centralize around some parts/cities.
