Koltsovo Airport’s control tower might not get finished by summit

30 January 2009 (08:18)

‘The construction of the new international flights terminal is almost finished, so the terminal will probably have been launched by the end of March 2009. By this time, the architectural finish of the control tower will have been completed as well. As for the equipment, the delivery and assembly jobs are to begin in May,’ Yekaterinburg-based Koltsovo Airport’s General Director Kirill Shubin announced at a meeting devoted to special construction projects monitored by Governor of Sverdlovsk Region Eduard Rossel.

‘However, while Yekaterinburg is hosting the Shanghai Cooperation Organization summit this summer, we’ll probably still be using the old control tower, as all the machinery will still be assembled in the new one,’ he added.
