Euro 2012 airport construction work begins
Lviv’s bid to host matches during the Euro 2012 championships hinges largely on the city’s ability to get its stadium and airport facilities in place in time for the event. After many delays and financing wrangles work finally began in mid-September on the city’s hotly-anticipated new Airport Terminal Building. Leading regional officials gathered to mark the event by planting a time capsule in the foundations of the new terminal building, which is being constructed to plans produced by Dutch engineering giant Tebodin. The new building will eventually transform Lviv’s status as a regional air travel hub, creating enormous opportunities both for the business and tourism sectors.
