Manchester Airport in Northwest England is marking one year of construction on its £1bn (US$1.3bn) transformation program by releasing images and a video showing the work completed so far. The project will see Terminal 2 (T2) increase in size by 150%, making it the focal point of the airport’s operations.

The program got under way a year ago after a visit by the UK’s secretary of state for transport, Chris Grayling. Since then, the airport’s skyline has changed dramatically as the first pier has been built and over 70% of the steelwork has been erected on the terminal extension.

There are currently 1,200 people working on-site, including 80 apprentices. This will increase to nearly 1,500 people working on-site with a target of 150 apprentices at the height of the project. Since ground was first broken, approximately £185m (US$236m) has been spent with SMEs in the supply chain within a 35-mile radius of the airport.
