More Airport

So your intrepid blogger brings you an update on the construction of the Bangalore International Airport, previously blogged about here and here.

It took me about 20 minutes to drive from the highway to the site offices and actually stopped to ask for directions three times. Interesting drive, mostly barren land where one gets excited to see the first signs of construction (which is a compound wall) in about half a kilometre from the highway.

The construction of the ATC Tower.

The sections of the roof at the pre-cast yard, which are this cool wave-shaped profile. Check out the construction and then the artist's impression of the roof, below.

And in case you were wondering, here's the compound wall.
