Detailed design work is scheduled to run through 2004 and 2005. The first construction package, covering reclamation, is due to be tendered next year.

Two more phases are planned, which will take capacity up to 50 million passengers a year by 2015. The client is the NDIA Steering Committee. QA, which is the main driver behind the project, has taken on the UK’s BAE Systemsto advise during the masterplan phase (MEED 14:11:03).
