Lane will work at the airport alongside the National Contracting Transportation Corp of Sharjah, UAE, and will be responsible for roughly 60 percent of the $125 million project -- a project that includes new terminal facilities, concourses, runways, roads and tunnels.
Before the expansion occurs, Lane will construct temporary fences and gates, utilities and site offices, as well as site security. The expansion project is slated to begin in January and run for 31 months. After completion, the airport should accommodate more than 220 million passengers per year, a feat that would make the airport the largest in the world by size and passenger capacity by 2050.
The contract highlights Salini Impregilo’s reach and leadership in the infrastructure sector. Elsewhere in the UAE, the group has worked on projects that include the Ras Al Khor Interchange and the Parallel Roads R 881.
