Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) is one of the busiest aviation hub in the world. To cope with the increasing air traffic demand, HKIA has commenced its expansion into a Three Runway System (3RS) in August 2016. As one of the major mega infrastructure projects in Hong Kong, challenges of the 3RS include formation of 650-hectares of land on contaminated mud pits in the seabed; construction of a project with a scale comparable to building a new airport besides a busily operating one; projecting forward how and what an airport should be according to passengers’ expectation in the future.

Kevin Poole, Executive Director, Third Runway of the Airport Authority Hong Kong, who is also the project leader of the 3RS, will talk about project management of the challenges ahead.
