Green light for Hong Kong third runway work

Hong Kong Airport Authority has gained statutory approval for reclamation work that will allow construction of a third runway to go ahead. The authority said it would now proceed with the detailed design for the third runway and also start procurement of construction contracts for the reclamation works at the earliest opportunity.
The expansion includes reclaiming 650 hectares of land, building a 3,800-metre-long new runway and supporting taxiway systems, a new passenger building and apron, an expanded Terminal and comprehensive road network and transportation facilities.
The airport says that the current two runways will soon reach their practical maximum capacity and that there is an urgent need to proceed with construction as soon as possible.
