Hong Kong Awards Contract For Airport Master Plan

25 July 2008


The Hong Kong Airport Authority has appointed Maunsell Consultants Asia Limited as lead consultant for the Hong Kong International Airport Master Plan 2030.

This 20-year blueprint will ensure the airport meets growing demand for aviation services and continues to serve the best interests of the community.

Maunsell will lead a team of sub consultants - including cost estimators and environmentalists, and planners specialising in areas such as airfields, terminals, retail facilities and rail networks - to make a comprehensive assessment of the airport's operational requirements and constraints.

The study is expected to be completed within a year.

Airport Authority Chief Executive Officer Stanley Hui said the master plan would update the air-traffic forecasts, capacity requirements, development plans and growth strategies.

The plan would also review and recommend the optimal airport layout and land-use development including the possibility of building a third runway and its supporting infrastructure.

He also said they would carry out a separate consultancy study to assess the environmental impacts and engineering feasibilities of expansion options.
