I had an email today which says that T2X will be opened in phases starting from next July. First elements are likely to be security, departure lounges, with restaurants and shops, and immigration.

Final sections, including check-in will open later in the year.
Ouch. Better late than never don’t they say?

Further clarification of my earlier post on taxiway redesignation:

OAN 123/2019 – RE-DESIGNATION OF TAXIWAYS AND HOLDING POSITIONS.
OAN REF:‐ 123/2019 DATE OF ISSUE:‐ 13/11/19 EFFECTIVE DATE:‐ 04/12/19 EXPIRY DATE:‐ 07/12/19
1.0 SUMMARY
1.1 As part of the MAN‐TP development there will be changes to the naming of some taxiways and associated intermediate and runway holding points. The changes will take place overnight on Wednesday 4th into the morning of Thursday 5th December. The changes are timed to be coincident and effective with the worldwide amendment of aeronautical charts (AIRAC 13/2019).
2.0 PROGRAMME
2.1 The changes will commence at 21:00L on the night of Wednesday 4th, and be completed by 05:30L on the morning of Thursday 5th December 2019.
2.2 In the event of adverse weather or other unforeseen circumstances preventing work being completed on the night of Wednesday 4th, work will take place during designated contingency nights of Thursday 5th and/or Friday 6th December.
3.0 SCOPE & LOCATION OF WORKS
3.1 The scope of work will involve the changing of airfield signage and some painted ground markings to reflect new taxiway and associated holding point designations.
3.2 The schedule of taxiway and holding point re‐designations is summarised in the tables overleaf and depicted on the map attached to this document.


4.0 OPERATIONAL IMPLICATIONS
4.1 With effect from Thursday 5th December 2019, the new taxiway and holding point designations will be in use on aeronautical charts and within textual data (AIRAC 13/2019) and also on local airfield maps issued by MAG.
4.1.1 From the effective date all relevant airfield signage and painted ground markings will have been changed and all communications from Air Traffic Control, flight crews, Airport Fire Service, Airfield Operations and other airfield drivers must use the new designations. 4.2 Aircraft Pushback Procedures
4.2.1 A new Manchester Airport Aircraft Pushback Procedures document will be issued in advance of the taxiway and holding point re‐designations and will be effective from Thursday 5th December 2019.
5.0 LOW VISIBILITY OPERATIONS (LVO)
5.1 The work taking place on the night of Wednesday 4th December will have no impact on the airport’s ability to operate during periods of low visibility.

I believe most were closed due to their being less ideally situated for modern aircraft, and also to avoid conflicting traffic on the through taxiways when aircraft were vacating the main runway.

I recently re-watched this old video from the airport: (warning - it's the dreaded small-child voiceover)


I found it really useful to re-watch the fly-through now we've seen so much of the construction progress (and, in some cases, travelled through part of the new facilities ourselves!). Really helps with getting your bearings and being able to piece together the photos Scottie is sharing.

It’s quite sad to see what’s currently not happening too; the direct motorway link, the enlarged drop off area, the 1993 MSCP extension, the less than stellar feature ceiling, the living wall...

But of course we know the budget didn’t agree with the aspiration. Maybe one day.

I received an email this morning from Airfield Operations who advise that new (under construction) taxiway Echo will open in phases during 2020.

Confirmation of the change of remote stand numbers for Pier 2


I'm not certain about this change of taxiway designation - I believe it will still be Juliet as November-Bravo goes through the old Papa (by stand 80)

A quick visit this morning produced the following MANTP updates.




I will upload further general photos onto the Manchester Airport photo site later this evening.
