is that a road/highway that is being built in the middle of the open space? or is it a storm water drain into the river?

Hi,
it's a road, called "okrifteler straße"

http://maps.google.de/maps?hl=de&q=o...ed=0CAgQ8gEwAA

this road was already there long before the expansion and due to the new rwy this road will get an underpass.

some pics from 09:

I've passed through Frankfurt International plenty of times; it's a great airport and I'm pleased to see it expand.

looking back at this thread from p1, it's truly a massive expansion. i bet many ppl are blown away upon arrival at the scale of construction! seeing so many cranes in one location is, for me at least, really imposing!

it all looks so good but i hope that the enviro concerns of nearby residents, etc were addressed properly...

blown away, but mostly not in a positive way. this airport has been under construction and reconstruction for ages. there are tens of construction sites all over the place. this makes FRA even more complicated than it already is for many passengers. exluding BBI, which is a new airport, I doubt there is an airport in europe with more construction - thats good for the airport, but bad for many passengers.

Wonder when they will start with Terminal 3 ? It will add another 25 million pax capacity. On wikipedia they say that ther terminal will open in 2018. So they should start construction around 2015.

I am just curious, how many boarding bridges are at FRA? When I flew through their the last time I had to take a bus to the terminal.

I must say wow at the amount of expansion and especially at the AirRail Center which is massive. It looks like an enormous glass ship.
