Taiwan Taoyuan Airport expansion to cost NT$300 billion: officials
Categories:
Level:5

Taipei, April 19 (CNA) The Civil Aeronautics Administration (CAA) said Tuesday that it will cost NT$300 billion (US$10.4 billion) to refurbish and expand Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport, the country's main gateway.

After the Executive Yuan approved the Conceptual Plan for Airport Park on April 11, the CAA said the airport complex will be expanded from 1,249 hectares to 1,994 hectares.

The project includes the construction of a third terminal by 2018 and another runway by 2021. These two aspects of the project will account for most of the expansion and are integral to the plan to develop the airport as a regional hub, the CAA said.

In addition, the Free Trade Zone inside the airport will be expanded from 45 hectares to 200 hectares, it said.

The construction of the new runway will cost an estimated NT$10 billion, while the new terminal and related facilities such as a ground transport center will cost around NT$67 billion, the CAA said.

Upon completion of the project, the airport will be able to accommodate 58.9 million passengers and 4.48 million tons of cargo volume per year by 2030.

The CAA said it will immediately start the land expropriation process, which will cost NT$60 billion.

I think company also need to make renovation for departure lounge facade. The facade is dirty and old.

Agreed! The interior and exterior of the gates also needs to be modernized. A Berlin-inspired renovation would go along way to improving the airport's image. http://forum.skyscraperpage.com/show...0&postcount=15

as a taiwanese american, you should be aware of american airports. shouldn't taoyuan airport terminal 2 look like a godsend compared to anything in the United States?

Seriously dude, you're getting annoying. Is there a single thread in the Taiwan forum where you haven't stated the exact same crap?

Anyway, it's good to finally see Terminal1 getting a major overhaul - it was about time.

here's a short video of the terminal construction. they put those roof shingle things on already. i think they're talking about how one of the workers almost slipped on the roof.

It is actually talking about poor safety in construction site, wrong safety procedure. Workers don't have chain or safety rope to hold themselves, prevent falling down when they are building the roof.

that's stupid to be working on a steep slippery roof like that especially in taipei's moist humid rainy climate without safety ropes and harnesses!! guess they dont mind falling.
