Beijing plans new US$14 billion new airport

source:transportweekly author: time:2014-05-20  

China is to build a CNY86 billion (US$14 billion) airport south of Beijing as congestion continues to clog runways and gates at Beijing Capital International Airport, Reuters reports.

The airport will border on Hebei province and is expected to handle 72 million passengers and two million tonnes of cargo annually, according to a document posted on the website of Ministry of Environmental Protection.

Beijing's Capital International Airport, which was opened in 1958, is already operating beyond designed capacity of 80 million passengers a year. In 2013, the airport handled 83 million.

Delays at Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and Xinzheng airports have resulted in riots. Angry passengers at Xinzheng smashed chairs and computers. One even entered the control tower and assaulted staff.
