Aviation Media and News since 2008


Construction continues. We are all awaiting to see the pre cast concrete sections to be added that will bring the new control tower nearly to it’s full height. Currently, construction crews are continuing on with what looks to be the elevator shaft section in the central core of the building.

Construction of the Central Core and Elevator Shaft continues on the new State of the Art Adelaide Control Tower. 27th March 2011.

Nice evening shot of tower construction works in progress.
