The length of the surface of the main hinge will be 3 thousand 750 meters. The bottom section is 135 meters wide. Because when we start to fill the sea at minus 27 meters, we need to work with a large section at the bottom to catch the section we want above. We will also have a 265-meter taxiway to 24 meters. After the plane lands on the runway, it needs to take a taxi so that it can reach the apron and approach the terminal. We have a taxiway and we have 120 meters and 240 meters of aprons. ”

Considering that the total stone need for the breakwater is 18 million tons, we have made nearly a third of it. We have made 30 percent of the stone fill mend, which is the most important part of our airport, which we built as a filling to the sea. If you consider the entire airport, we have passed about 11 percent. As of April, we will be able to fill between 80 and 100 thousand tons per day. Things will get much faster starting in April.
