Salt Lake Airport

Construction of a new airport in Utah, US, has started, as part of a $1.8bn terminal redevelopment project of the Salt Lake City International Airport.

The new three-storey terminal and linear concourse are being built to replace the current Salt Lake City Airport over the next ten years.

As part the project, the airport will see the construction of a new parking facility, a new terminal and half of the concourse, which will be completed by 2019.

"We can expand to the east or west to the terminal itself and that is very hard to do with the horseshoe facility that we have today."

The project is anticipated to create 24,000 full-time jobs and will contribute a total income of $1bn for the local people.

Salt Lake City Department of Airports executive director Maureen Riley said: "On our master plan, we do have a fourth runway very far into the future. We can expand to the east or west to the terminal itself and that is very hard to do with the horseshoe facility that we have today."
