Yeah, that's the picture I saw in the magazine! Thanks for clearifying.. It makes sense for them to work on the MRT and the foundation of T3 at the sametime!

i guess they're not going to build a whole new airport which i think is a better idea. i hope t3 is at least designed by a world renown foreign architct, e.g., santiago calatravas. but i dont think his style will match the other 2 terminals. that's why a whole new terminal designed by a foreign architect is a much better idea.

Unfortunately, I have not heard any detail about T3 development.
I only know the budget is locked by our grand Legislative Yuan.

hoping for an entire new terminal is too ambitious a goal methinks. Here is to hoping that they bring T1 to world standards, and thus our combined airport will be fully adequate. Not pretty, but very convenient and efficient

If the T3 is built, I do hope that it is connected with MRTs again.

Norihiko Dan's website now lists the completion date for the T1 renovation as 2013.

No, it means he's listed the completion date as 2013. I wouldn't read too much into this as he's already changed the date twice .....2008.... 2010.

Plans begin for airport terminal
The CAA is seeking designs for the third terminal at the airport in Taoyuan from overseas architectural teams, the CAA chief said
7 June 2010
Taipei Times

The Ministry of Transportation and Communications (MOTC) said yesterday it will start planning the construction of a third terminal at Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport this year.

Minister of Transportation and Communications Mao Chi-kuo said in a briefing to President Ma Ying-jeou that the ministry aims to re-establish Taoyuan International Airport as a hub in Northeast Asia.

LOCOMOTIVE

"The cross-strait direct aviation policy has helped resume the growth of passenger flights at Taoyuan Airport," Mao said. "The next project is the Airport Zone project, which will spread the economic benefits from the airport to nearby areas. The third terminal will serve as the locomotive of the Airport Zone project."

Civil Aeronautics Administration Director-General Lee Lung-wen said the preliminary plan is to build an eco-friendly third terminal next to the second terminal, adding that the CAA is seeking designs from well-known architectural teams overseas.

Ma inspected the facilities at Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport yesterday morning. Along with Mao and Lee, Ma was also accompanied by Taoyuan County Commissioner John Wu and the Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) candidate for Sinbei City Eric Chu. The Airport Zone project was proposed during Chu's term as Taoyuan County commissioner.

During his inspection tour, Ma examined the baggage carts and the restaurants at the airport, which have been criticized by some of the nation's celebrities. The airport should strive to bring in restaurants serving Taiwanese snacks that are normally available in Shihlin and *Liuho night markets, Ma said.

Lee said a total of 2,600 baggage carts should be in place by the end of the August, adding that there will soon be customer surveys on both the airport's restaurants and baggage carts.

Lee added there will also be a library available for passengers transiting at the airport. A third runway will be built to accommodate larger aircraft, such as the Airbus 380.

Ma also inspected the airport rail construction sites, which is scheduled to begin operation in October 2014.

The Bureau of High Speed Rail (BHSR), which is in charge of building the airport rail, is planning to offer express train services that will allow passengers from Taipei to arrive at the airport in 28 minutes.

INCENTIVE AND INCLINE

Ma, however, said the operation time should be reduced to 20 to 25 minutes if the bureau wants more people to stop driving to the airport and use the rail service instead.

"It [the system] takes such a long time to build and it moves so slowly, who will come and use it?" Ma said. "We should have the ambition to make the travel time shorter. If we could manage to make it into a 20 minute or 25 minute ride, this would be a greater incentive to use the service."

BHSR Director-General Chu Shu said that raising the speed might be a problem because a quarter of the railway section would have an incline of 3 percent or more.

they should build a huge terminal 3 between the space of terminal 1 and 2 and knock those two terminals down afterwards. and they should make it solar powered if they want it to be eco-friendly.

CAA orders new design for airport renovation

TAIPEI, Taiwan — The Civil Aeronautics Administration (CAA) has required the team responsible for the renovation of the Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport's Terminal 1 to come up with a new design after an expert panel found the original plan to be unsafe, Minister of Transportation and Communications Mao Chih-kuo (毛治國) said yesterday.

Inspections by the Taiwan Structure Engineering Association have found that the original plan to cut the pre-stressed concrete beams will jeopardize the safety of the construction process. The team led by Japanese architect Norihiko Dan will have to deliver the new plan by Friday, Nov. 12, or their contract will be canceled.

Norihiko Dan and his associates began the renovation project November 2009. In August 2010, the team pointed out that they found the pre-stressed concrete beams of the building to be worn out where they were preparing to cut them. The CAA refuted that and questioned the safety of the team's plan.

The Ministry of Transportation and Communications (MOTC) has formed a special taskforce and has held five meetings with the team to handle the issue, Mao said. The team had failed to comply with the CAA's request to provide details on the construction plan after the TSEA determined the original design to be faulty, he continued, adding that all the new ideas proposed by the team in the meetings were half-baked and unfeasible.

Mao dismissed Norihiko Dan's claims over the worn-out beams as nonsense and stressed that the renovation project could actually be simpler without cutting the beams.


Airport impasse to end Friday

REDESIGN WRANGLE:The CAA said the contract to remodel Terminal 1 at Taoyuan airport will be canceled if Norihiko Dan does not provide a safe and reliable design

By Shelley Shan / Staff reporter

The architecture team chosen to remodel Terminal 1 at Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport must submit a new design by Friday or it will lose the contract with the Civil Aeronautics Administration (CAA), Minister of Transportation and Communications Mao Chi-kuo (毛治國) said yesterday.

Last year, the CAA announced it would renovate the terminal, which has been in service since 1979, recruiting Japanese architect Norihiko Dan to redesign it.

Dan intended to create a new facade for the 31-year-old terminal by covering the building with a glass curtain, with the overall image resembling headwear worn by officials in ancient China.

The dispute began when Dan’s team planned to remove pre-stressed beams. After the team conducted an initial test, the CAA asked Dan to consider altering the design as removing the pre-stressed beams could weaken the terminal’s structure. The request enraged Dan, who held a press conference and accused the CAA of disrespecting him as a professional architect.

In response, the CAA entrusted the Chinese Society of Structural Engineering (CSSE) with the task of evaluating the safety of Dan’s design.

“We have invited experts on structural safety and have had five meetings with him [Dan],” Mao told Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) Legislator Chu Fong-chi (朱鳳芝).

“We listened to [Dan] patiently. He would come up with new ideas every time we met. However, the ideas lacked details for their execution. Nor did he have plans to address the structural safety concerns. All of them were unfeasible,” Mao said.

Mao said the CAA was scheduled to meet with the team on Friday, adding that the Ministry of Transportation and Communications would cancel the contract if Dan’s team failed to provide a safe and viable design.

In a statement last night, Dan said the CAA’s request to not remove the pre-stressed beams contradicted with its expectations that the project could be completed by August next year.

“Do you understand that we would have to redo the structural and fire protection safety review from the top down without removing the pre-stressed beams, making it absolutely impossible to finish by the end of August next year?” Dan asked.

He also accused the CSSE of already having decided on a conclusion when evaluating the safety of the design.

Fan Hsiao-lun (范孝倫), chief of the CAA’s Aerodrome Engineering division, said the goal of completing renovations by August next year remained unchanged.

“He [Dan] has his questions, we also have our doubts,” Fan said. “We asked a third party [the CSSE] to help us resolve the technical questions and he then said that we had a preset conclusion. Does that mean we can listen to no one but him?”

Fan said that some of the experts recruited to assess the project had previous experience evaluating the structure of the Taipei 101 skyscraper.

To say that Taiwan does not have structural safety experts is unacceptable, he said.

While Dan claimed the construction method he chose has been used in Japan and has proven to be safe, Fan said that research showed the method was only used in bridge construction.

There was no documentation that the method could be safely applied to renovate a building, he said.

Fan said that altering the design did not mean the CAA could not finish the project on time, adding that it would abide by the terms stated in the contract.

Taoyuan Airport wins international prize through attentive service
2011/04/01 19:36:50





Taipei, April 1 (CNA) Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport beat 240 airports in 100 countries to win top place for Best Airport Security Processing, airport authorities said Friday.

The country's main gateway climbed two notches in Skytrax's World Airport Reports 2010 with what the airport official described as "attentive services."

"We treat passengers with care instead of suspicion, " said Yang Chyi-lin, deputy director of the Aviation Police Office.

Yang cited its lost and found policy as one example of his staff's approach to service. He said passengers lose about 300 items at security checkpoints each month. But instead of waiting for the passenger to come back and claim the item, security officers will retrieve video footage of the checkpoint processing, go to the departure counter and identify the person who lost the item, and find that person before he or she boards the plane.

"Our people have become so familiar with the procedure that they can almost locate the person within a few minutes without fail, " he said.

After the approach was adopted in 2009, the number of lost items dropped by more than half, according to Yang.

The World Airport Awards are given out based on the results from 11.38 million survey questionnaires completed by travelers from over 100 countries.

Japan's Nagoya Airport and South Korea's Incheon International Airport were ranked second and third, respectively, in the security

桃機將建第三航廈 3千億打造東亞樞紐
2011-04-19 新聞速報 台灣醒報/蕭介雲
行政院今天公佈,未來桃園機場將興建第三航廈與第三條跑道,預估在2030年客運量目標為5890萬人次、貨運量為448萬噸、起降架次為46.7萬架次,這項計畫將投資近3000億元。國民黨立委羅淑蕾對此強調,在第三航廈發包前,第一和第二航廈的問題一定要先管理好,並且精準計算旅客運量。



交通部民航局表示,桃園國際機場未來功能定位,將以發展東亞樞紐機場為目標,提供優質便捷的客貨流通環境,以協助我國?業發展,並以促進非航空事業成長為2項推動主軸。

交通部預估,桃機到2030年運量發展目標,客運量為5890萬人次,未來機場園區將由目前1249公頃擴充至1994公頃,並規劃興建可獨立起降的第三跑道、客貨運設施、航機維修區以及擴大自由貿易港區等。

民航局強調,行政院是在11日核定「桃園國際機場園區綱要計畫」,未來將依據「建設發展」與「用地取得」等面向,分別推動下階段的「園區實施計畫」與「園區特定區計畫」擬定作業,逐步落實強化機場園區核心功能,進而帶動周邊土地及產業開發,促使桃園航空城發展成功。

列席桃機體檢專案小組的羅淑蕾指出,第一、第二航廈的管理都「離離落落」,既然投入龐大的預算,並要在2014年發包,就必須先行改善現有的問題,不能重蹈覆轍,同時也要準確計算運量,以避免產生虧損。她表示,未來會在立法院質詢時,持續關注此一議題。

目前即將辦理桃園機場北面745公頃土地區段徵收,估計經費是600億元,擬由民航作業基金支出,並希望今年底前辦理國際競圖,預計在2014年發包動工,工期時間約4年半左右。

Taoyun International airport park is approved by central government. Government will start the plan based on Taoyuan International Airport Park.
