Connecting taxiway completed


The connecting taxiway project of Chengdu Shuangliu Airport has been completed at a cost of RMB 8.34 million (about US$1.07 million). The new taxiway will improve operation of the runway of the airport and ease the situation of the saturated single runway capacity. The taxiway, 145 meters long and 49.5 meters wide, connects the runway and two other taxiways. It can accommodate the taxiing of a B747-400 jetliner. Support facilities such as visual aid light and fire fighting have also been built. The completion of the taxiway will allow aircraft with a shorter takeoff taxiing distance to enter the runway directly from the connecting taxiway and take off without taxiing to the end of the runway.
