New Zealand’s Christchurch Airport will start construction of its new $208m terminal in the coming month. It is expected to be completed by January 2011, before the Rugby World Cup begins.

Hawkins Construction is the main building contractor for the new terminal and is currently constructing the air traffic control tower at Christchurch Airport.

Christchurch Airport chief executive officer Jim Boult said: “The first major stage of the new terminal, a new domestic and international check-in hall on the ground floor with a retail and dining precinct on the first floor, will be operational by January 2011.”

He added that project development has been subject to number of delays but on completion it will be one of the largest construction projects in the South Island with high-quality standards and efficiency.

The airport says that it has already spent $15m on a car park building.
