What Construction Is Going On In GVA?

Sat Apr 09, 2005 4:47 am

The other day I passed by GVA and noticed theses constructions taking place next to the runway. My first thought was that they are making it larger for the A 380 to come since I know they have to reinforce the tunnel going to Ferney Voltaire. Would anyone be able to confirm me what those constructions are?

The width of the runway in GVA is 60 meters (196 feet), this is fare enough for a A 380. They don't have to make it larger for this. I also doubt that a A 380 will come regular to GVA within the next ten years.
