Two Towers - Melbourne's original Control Tower, built in the 1960s, is dwarfed by the new Tower being built alongside it. The new Tower will eventually be 78m high and provide a sufficient view to accommodate the airport's future expansion - particularly a new north-south runway to the west of the Tower. Amazingly, this new structure went up in about a fortnight using continuous casting of the concrete in a slip form.
