Schiphol is breaking with contractor Ballast Nedam-TAV, which is working on an important expansion of the airport.

It concerns the so-called A-pier, the construction of which is almost finished.

Schiphol announced on Monday that a new tender will be issued to complete the extensive project.

"A dispute has arisen, partly due to irreconcilable differences of opinion about which party is responsible for which part of the design," a spokesperson for the airport said when asked.

At the presentation of the half-year figures, Schiphol already hinted that there was a lot of fuss about the construction.

The construction of Pier A is quite a headache for the airport.

Time and again the project was postponed.

The pier should have been finished years ago.
