    By 2017? Something this audacious?

    I hope they design the road approach to be as circular as JFK. :D

    Even more important lets hope the driving habits of the city's road users improve considerably.
    On my last trip there I saw an unbelievable number of drivers sometimes in multiple lanes reversing at top speed (of course against the flow of traffic) because they had missed the exit from the main highway to the airport.

    I am interested to see how the ground transport connections to this new airport are- that will be a deciding factor.
