Budimex, a Ferrovial Agroman subsidiary, is to expand and upgrade Szczecin-Goleniów Airport, in northwest Poland, for 88 million zlotys (around 21 million euro). Construction is expected to be completed in mid-2015. The project includes upgrading a 2.5 kilometre section of the airport's current runway and building a parallel 2.5 kilometre taxiway and four other taxiways measuring 720 metres. Three aprons will be extended, the sewer, electricity and fibre optic networks will be upgraded, and the area lighting systems and navigation signals will be improved. Szczecin-Goleniów Airport serves the city of Szczecin, one of the Baltic's primary ports, whose metropolitan area has a population of over 800,000. Budimex has extensive experience in airport infrastructure. The company built Gdansk Airport's Terminal 2, which doubled that airport's capacity. It is currently extending the take-off runway at Warsaw Airport, which handles 50% of all air traffic in Poland.
