Hongqiao Airport runway undergoes major renovation

THE oldest runway in Shanghai Hongqiao International Airport will undergo a four-month renovation, the city's construction and transportation authorities said today. The runway on the east of the airport will be closed to traffic between 1am and 8am. Flights during the day will not be affected, airport officials said. The delayed flights after 1am will be directed to the city's Pudong International Airport for landing. Built in 1964, the runway remained the Hongqiao airport's only runway until last year when a second runway was put into service together with a new terminal. The old runway has received three major repairs in 1991, 1998 and 2005.
