Moscow Sheremetyevo third runway completion delayed

The Russian Administration of Civil Airports, a state enterprise charged with improving Russia’s civil flight infrastructure, told the Russian press last week that the construction contract for the third runway at Sheremetyevo would be dissolved because building work had halted. The construction contractor, Inzhtransstroy, currently has no equipment or workers on site following delays in funding on state contracts that culminated in a full halt in payments early this year, the report said. “Complying with the work schedule for the third Sheremetyevo airstrip is not possible” until state financing starts arriving on time, an Inzhtransstroy spokesman told Vedomosti. The new runway, links and facilities is scheduled for completion in 2017 as part of Russia’s preparations for the 2018 football World Cup (which may yet be in doubt due to the FIFA scandal).
