    Looks like the March 2013 opening of BER may be delayed again according to Reuters. This after previous postponement going back to October 2011. Never knew a fire suppression system can cause so many delays.....:eek:

    Thanks for sharing this news, so we're prepared now to wait a bit longer. In this case, safety first, before speed of opening.

    I dont understand the details. How can a fire system delay things? I think there may be more to this than what is publicly available. Noted also the article said that the project is running out of money, but I supposed its typical when you talk this kind of scale and literally years in delays.
