London City airport has released a new video update on its £480 million development programme, which will see the existing passenger terminal extended and eight new aircraft stands created.

The video features the airport’s chief development officer Peter Adams on site, explaining how new “land” will be created in the King George V Dock to accommodate a new parallel taxiway along with the additional stands and terminal infrastructure.

A concrete deck measuring 75,000 sqm will be created, supported by steel and concrete columns which will be installed in the dock bed.

The piling and decking phase of the project is scheduled to take around two years to complete, with the development programme due to be completed in 2022.

The current terminal building will be extended to three times its current size, with a new departure lounge, check-in facilities, baggage reclaim and security.
