Taipei Times Excerpt
Runway crack to be fixed
GROUNDED : In an operation that could affect more than 100 flights, the south runway at Taoyuan airport is to close next week to repair a crack in the pavement

The south runway at the Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport is to be closed for 16 hours next week to repair a crack in the pavement, Taoyuan International Airport Corp (TIAC) said yesterday.

The work could affect more than 100 flights, the company said.

TIAC chairman Tseng Dar-jen (曾大仁) made the announcement at a meeting of the legislature’s Transportation Committee in Taipei, when lawmakers questioned the airport company about a report by Chinese-language newspaper the Liberty Times (the Taipei Times’ sister paper) on cracks found in the airport’s south runway.

The south runway was opened for operation in January 2015 without first passing an inspection, Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) Legislator Cheng Pao-ching (鄭寶清) said.

The pavement cracks might have resulted from a lack of airport oversight and poor construction quality, he added.

DPP Legislator Huang Kuo-shu (黃國書) asked why the cracks appeared after the renovated runway had been in use for only two years.

The runway is scheduled to be closed on Wednesday next week for repairs, Minister of Transportation and Communications Hochen Tan (賀陳旦) said.
However, Tseng said that the company would have to consult with air traffic control officials before setting a date and time.

It must have been contractor error that caused the pavement to crack, Tseng said, adding that the company would hold the contractor accountable.
The airport company in a statement said that the crack was about 9m long and 2mm wide, rather than the 60m in length that was reported by the media.

A flexible type of pavement has been used on the airport’s north and south runways, the company said, adding that the advantage of using this pavement was that repairs only take a maximum of 16 hours.

Expansion of Taoyuan Airport's Terminal 2 continues
Sep. 27, 2017
CNA Excerpt

Expansion of Taoyuan Airport's Terminal 2 continues Taipei, Sept. 27 (CNA) A ceremony was held Wednesday to mark the completion of expansion work on the northern wing of Terminal 2 at Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport and the opening of a departure hall on the third floor of the southern wing.

Once the expansion project is fully completed as scheduled in 2018, the passenger capacity of Terminal 2 will rise to 22 million from the original 17 million per year, said Tseng Dar-jen (曾大仁), chairman of Taoyuan International Airport Corp., during the ceremony.

Work on the NT$2.297 billion (US$77.18 million) expansion project will be completed in phases and upon completion, the space in the departure hall will increase by 50 percent, with an additional 56 manned check-in counters installed, Tseng said.

Meanwhile, the safety inspection space in the transit area will be tripled in size and there will also be more space for commercial, recreational and leisure activities, Tseng said, adding that the company plans to set up a bird's-eye rooftop restaurant and other recreational facilities in the future.

DPP Taipei mayoral aspirant vows to remove Songshan airport
Excerpt


IMG_0034s by 小宗宗, on Flickr

Taipei, Dec. 17 (CNA) Ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) Legislator Yao Wen-chih (姚文智) announced Sunday his intention to run in the Taipei mayoral election next year, pledging that if elected he will remove Taipei Songshan Airport, which he described as a "tumor" impeding the development of the city.

"I will run because I want to turn Songshan airport into a park," Yao said in a speech given to announce his candidacy for the position of Taipei mayor.

Yao was elected as a national legislator from Taipei in 2012 and 2016. A long-term advocate for the relocation of the Songshan airport, he said in Sunday's speech that removing the airport will allow Taipei to regenerate.

The proposed removal would involve up to 3,000 hectares of land, he said, noting that once developed the area could accommodate housing valued at NT$7.1 trillion.

The mayoral aspirant vowed to do away with the airport, located in the heart of downtown Taipei, and develop part of the area into a "Central Park" for Taipei if elected.

If elected in 2018, he would launch an international competition for the design of the park in 2020, close the airport in 2022, and begin construction of the park in 2023, Yao said.

If he failed to follow through on this promise after being elected, Yao joked he would "put up a tent on the runway at Songshan airport and let airplanes run over it."

Incumbent Taipei Mayor Ko Wen-je (柯文哲), who has made clear he intends to seek reelection, said the previous day that he supports the relocation of the airport but reiterated that such a decision is the responsibility of the central government.

Responding to Ko's remarks, Yao said any mayor of Taipei should do everything possible to persuade the central government to change its policy.
