We review tender documentation and design plans for the building and its technical installations, and produce FEM and CFD simulations of airport buildings, hangars and equipment. Risk management We offer IT security solutions, risk analyses and disaster recovery of information, including safety and security assessment of air traffic control systems, air traffic density, air crash frequencies, landing and start frequencies, and renovation and expansion projects.
Links to airport environment, safety, and planning Sites Review of the Airports Building Control and Environment Protection Regulations This discussion paper is the first stage of a comprehensive review of the regulatory framework for building activities and environment protection at the 19 leased federal airports.
The amendments streamline certain administrative arrangements relating to master plans MPs and major development plans MDPs to offer a more flexible, proportionate, efficiency-based regulatory approach.
The Department of Infrastructure, Regional Development and Cities recognises airport-lessee companies are now well experienced in drafting MPs and MDPs and the basic concepts and requirements for the planning documents are well established and understood by airport-lessee companies.
As part of the planning framework, airports are required to prepare a Master Plan that incorporates an Environment Strategy. The Master Plan is a 20 year strategic vision for the airport site which is renewed every five years.
The Master Plan includes future land uses, types of Airport infrastructures development, and noise and environmental impacts. The Environment Strategy sets out the airport's strategy to manage environmental issues within a 5 year period and beyond.
It is the basis on which the Commonwealth measures the environmental performance of airports and the document by which airport tenants will determine their environmental responsibilities.
Following the public consultation, the airport must then submit a Draft Master Plan to the Minister for Infrastructure and Regional Development, for a decision. The Minister must either approve or refuse to approve the Draft Master Plan.
If the Minister neither approves nor refuses to approve the Draft Master Plan within 50 business days from receiving all the necessary documents and information, the Minister is taken to have approved the Draft Master Plan. In addition, all leased federal airports except for Tennant Creek and Mount Isa Airports are required to develop a Major Development Plan for major airport developments on the airport site.
A draft version of the Major Development Plan must undergo public consultation before being submitted to the Minister for Infrastructure and Regional Development for a decision. The guidelines outline the objectives of the master plan amendments and explain how the changes to airport master planning complement other airport planning initiatives and legislative requirements.
These groups were established in to meet the expectations of the then-Commonwealth Government. While they are not decision-making bodies, CACGs aim to facilitate constructive and open discussion of airport operations and their impacts on nearby communities. Membership of most CACGs is by invitation only and generally consists of representatives from the airport, federal and state governments, Airservices Australia, and local communities.
Back to Top PCFs PCFs provide for consultation between airport operators and senior local, state and federal government authorities responsible for town planning, transport and infrastructure investment.
Effective discussions in PCF meetings support better integration of planning for the airport with the surrounding urban and regional communities. All major capital city airports, and some secondary airports, operate PCFs. Membership of PCFs is by invitation only and generally consist of representatives from the airport, federal, state and local governments, and Airservices Australia.
The PCF Chair is usually a senior airport representative. The review found that CACGs and PCFs are generally well supported by their participants and the groups are considered effective in meeting their stated aims.
Airports are now expected to tailor their consultation activities to suit the specific needs of their stakeholders. Alternatively, or in addition, airports may choose to undertake a range of other consultation activities as considered appropriate.
Further enquiries about airport consultation can be sent to the department at: The pervious government indicated that this community impact trigger would be supported by a guidance document. The guide is now available PDF: The purpose of this document is to provide greater detail on development factors that may require the consultation and scrutiny of a Major Development Plan process as a result of the new community impact trigger.
Airport regulation All leased federal airports are subject to the following regulations:TRB's Airport Cooperative Research Program (ACRP) Research Report Common Performance Metrics for Airport Infrastructure and Operational Planning serves as a reference guide and introduces common performance metrics for airport infrastructure and operational planning.
safety management of airport infrastructures In the last 10 years the number of accidents in civil aviation has remained almost constant.
It is feared that the proposed incline in air traffic will result in an unacceptable increase in the number of accidents in the new future.
Plovdiv Airport is a regional airport that serves South-Central Bulgaria and a population of over 2 million people in a driving distance of hours by road. The airport is located 12 km southeast from the city of Plovdiv - the second largest city and cultural capital of .
The reduced charges and the brand new infrastructure both turn Plovdiv into the most competitive airport in Bulgaria. The current traffic at Plovdiv Airport is pretty low. passengers have gone through the airport for the peak year of operations - Private investment in airport infrastructure is popular again: the growing importance of the PPP Privatisation of airports, or at the very least their corporatisation into independent business units that behave along business lines, has again become fashionable.
As the demand for passenger and cargo services continues to grow, so will the corresponding increase in airport infrastructure development and maintenance costs. Key findings. Terminal projects represent percent of overall airport infrastructure needs.
