To meet continued growth forecasts, paving in the midfield area at Hong Kong International Airport is continuing at a rapid pace. The recently opened HK$10bn Midfield Concourse includes 20 parking stands and a new taxiway system, and is the most significant capacity enhancement since the airport first opened in 1998. However the areas further west of the concourse continue to be developed as remote passenger and cargo aprons to meet the stand demand. This session will focus on the construction of the airfield pavements as follows:
Overview of the taxilanes, taxiways and apron layouts serving the new concourse;
Challenges connecting new taxiways and opening of new stands without impacting the airport's daily operations;
Case studies for sustainable material sourcing: Trials for recycling asphalt chippings, and crushing the original island boulders, to incorporate into the pavement mix designs.
