Donald Cant Watts Corke has been appointed as Project Managers on Melbourne Airport’s Third Runway (M3R) project.

The M3R project is progressing with formal procedure and submission of the Master Development Plan, providing an overview of the project, the benefits and impacts for public review and Government approval.

Melbourne is one of the busiest airports in the world without a parallel runway system and currently operates two intersecting runways. As the aviation industry has evolved, parallel runway operations have become the preferred option for safety, efficiency and operability.

The M3R project the comprises a new runway (parallel to the existing north-south oriented runway), modification of the existing east-west runway, extensive construction and modification of taxiways, and the associated support infrastructure.

Donald Cant Watts Corke have been working with Melbourne Airport for over 10 years providing project management services across their landside, terminal and airside precincts including Terminal 4 and the Terminal 4 Carpark, Foxtrot Apron Infill, Alpha Apron South, the AGL Upgrade Project and Taxiway Zulu.

“Melbourne Airport’s 3rd Runway project represents the continuing growth of Melbourne and will re-define the Airport. Opportunities to be involved in projects like this are career defining, it is incredibly exciting to be able to share the challenges and achievements that this project will provide with our great team” – Henry Ashton

Since the airport was constructed in the 1960s, the population of Victoria has surged to over five million people and the aviation industry has been transformed. Melbourne Airport has evolved and expanded in line with industry advances and increased demand for movement of passengers and freight. Ongoing development of the airport is necessary to ensure that this critical infrastructure meets Victoria’s social and economic needs into the future.

Long-term development plans for Melbourne Airport have included a four-runway configuration since the 1960s. The need for development of a third runway was detailed in the 2013 Melbourne Airport Master Plan and reaffirmed in the 2018 Melbourne Airport Master Plan. It remains the intention that a fourth runway will be developed in the future as demand necessitates.
