A joint venture between Skanska and New York-based civil engineer Halmar International has signed an $868m contract to build a transport hub at JFK International Airport in New York.

The project for the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey involves the extension of the airport’s road network as well as utility relocations and upgrades.

The team will build a 1,950-space multistorey car park equipped with charging stations and a timber façade. There will also be a 400ft-long pedestrian bridge, and provisions will be made for food trucks, rainwater harvesting, a green roof and solar panels.

The aim of the project is to improve user connectivity and access to the surrounding terminals.

Work on the development began in May 2023 and is due to be completed by December 2027.
