Construction of HKIA Three-Runway System Begins

Airport Authority Hong Kong (AA) kicked off the construction of Hong Kong International Airport’s (HKIA) Three-Runway System (3RS) yesterday.

The eight-year construction of 3RS is expected to be completed in 2024, with the commissioning of the new runway in 2022, HKIA said in the announcement.

The construction entails reclamation of approximately 650 hectares of land, which will be completed in phases for the subsequent works such as the new runway, taxiway system as well as a Third Runway Passenger Building with 57 parking positions.

“The 3RS is a critical infrastructure project to support the aviation industry and the long-term economic development of Hong Kong. We urgently need this expansion project as HKIA’s existing two-runway system is reaching its full capacity soon,” said Jack So Chak-kwong, Chairman of the AA.

“Some 139,000 man-years of construction jobs are expected to be created during the construction phase, with some 123,000 direct employments created upon the commencement of the 3RS operation.”

Four contracts for 3RS reclamation-related works were also signed by representatives of the AA and the contractors at the occasion.
