EIA Environmental Protection Hong Kong third runway

Airport Authority Hong Kong has submitted the airport’s third runway project profile to the director of Environmental Protection. While the submission has brought a probe in the environmental impact of a three-runway system, it is the latest development in the construction process and follows the Hong Kong government’s conditional approval of the third runway in March this year.

The public can submit comments till June 11 to the Director of Environmental Protection about the third runway after which the project’s statutory Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) process would study air quality, water quality, noise, marine ecology, fisheries, waste management, landscape, visual and cultural heritage.
