Today (March 6) sees the delivery of a major milestone for the Manchester Airport Transformation Programme with Laing O’Rourke’s completion of the main build phase of the Terminal Two Extension (known as sectional completion 210a).
The airport described the milestone as “a hugely significant achievement” coming a little over two and half years since MAG signed the contract with Laing O’Rourke and confirms the project remains fully on course to Go-Live in July this year.
MAG programme delivery director, Rob Stewart, commented: “One year on from the completion of Pier One and the West Multi Storey Car Park, today’s on time milestone achievement represents the culmination of a huge collaborative effort by MAG and our team of experienced delivery partners. Everyone involved should feel extremely proud and the wider community excited about this fabulous facility coming online in July.”
Now the terminal extension has been handed over it will go through a range of trials and fit outs before opening to passengers in July.
More information about the project can be found in the February / March, 2020, edition of Airports International magazine.
