09:45 - 10:30 Hong Kong International Airport’s Third Runway Development

Kevin Poole - Executive Director, Third Runway, Airport Authority of Hong Kong
According to the International Air Transport Association, one in five of the world’s air travel passengers will be going to, from or within China by 2034. Hong Kong’s third runway project is part of the city-state’s push to accommodate this increasing regional capacity.

Officially approved to break ground in April 2016, reclamation work and detailed design can now begin on the HK$141 billion project.

This session will explore Hong Kong International Airport’s plans to construct a 3,800-metre new runway and supporting infrastructure, and some of the maintenance considerations being taken into account on this greenfield project.

11:00 - 11:45 Lessons Learned from Keflavik International Airport's Airfield Rehabilitation and Expansion Project

Gudmundur Dadi Runarsson - Technical and Infrastructure Director, Keflavik International Airport
In response to booming trans-Atlantic tourism, Iceland's Keflavik Airport is undergoing strategic airfield rehabilitation and expansion that includes the resurfacing of both runways and construction of a third, slated to break ground in 2017. This session will explore Keflavik Airport's expansion masterplan and airside infrastructure development, including:
  • Rapid runway resurfacing: key considerations in materials selection and operational efficiency to rehabilitate runway pavements while accommodating increasing aircraft volumes
  • Strategic taxiway expansion: undertaking continual assessment and simulations to balance airline requirements with viable constructability
  • Analyzing the decision-making factors behind additional airfield infrastructure including high-speed exits and apron buildouts

11:45 - 12:30 From Concept to Reality: The Brisbane New Parallel Runway Project

Paul Coughlan - Project Director, New Parallel Runway Project, Brisbane Airport Corporation
Currently under construction, Brisbane Airport’s $1.35-billion parallel runway project will consist of a new 3,300-metre runway and over 12 kilometres of taxiways and airfield infrastructure. Upon completion in 2020, Brisbane Airport will have doubled in capacity to accommodate future growth to 50 million passengers per year.

Paul will highlight the approach to:
  • Designing and building a runway on soft alluvial soils;
  • Interaction with airlines and the air navigation provider in the new airfield layout;
  • Value for money analysis of initial vs long term build;
  • Contractor procurement and contractual strategies;
  • Project Governance;
  • Environmental and community management.

Roundtable Discussion Groups

13:30 - 15:00 Maintaining Runway Friction for Safe Aircraft Operations
  • Measuring friction on operational runways pavements and optimization of rubber removal
  • Mitigating pavement surface damage when conducting rubber and line marking removal
  • When and where to groove and when/where not to?
  • The benefits and risks associated with new trapezoidal runway grooves

Roundtable Discussion Groups

13:30 - 15:00 Affecting Airfield Pavement Maintenance and Rehabilitation in Operational Environments Greg White - Associate Professor of Pavement Engineering – University of the Sunshine , Director – Airport Pavement Engineering Specialists
  • Optimizing the use of surface enrichment or rejuvenation treatments to improve bitumen malleability
  • Determining the best application rate for enrichment or rejuvenation treatments
  • Optimizing time-sensitive runway repair: Assessing specialized materials such as rapid-set concrete, warm mix asphalt and foamed bitumen base
  • Minimizing the impact of operations on airside works, as well as airside works on airport operations

15:00 - 15:30 Afternoon Break & Networking

CSIA Mumbai is India’s second-busiest airport, where operator Mumbai International Airport Limited (MIAL) recently completed a complex brownfield airport expansion and development program. The project is unique for its complexity and the volume of air traffic movements (ATMs) it handles. The majority of airfield facilities and infrastructure were redeveloped, and a new terminal was constructed alongside associated pavement works.

India’s third-busiest by air traffic volume, Bangalore International Airport (KIAL) recently broke ground on its expansion plans to build a second runway and terminal that will increase capacity by 20 million passengers upon completion of phase one in 2021.

The project includes a 4,000-metre new south parallel runway, full parallel taxiway, two cross-field taxiways connecting the new and existing runways and a terminal apron and new second terminal. Area development work began in 2016, and earthworks, pavement works, AGL systems, drainage and signage works will follow.

This session will explore key construction aspects of MIAL’s airside and landside development program. It will also discuss the concept design for the KIAL expansion and lessons learned executing a largescale airfield development by aligning project team communication and deliverables to proceed on-time and on-budget.
