    Read this as to why KLIA2 was moved to a swampy ground site when common sense will tell you that it is not feasible. http://dinmerican.wordpress.com/2011...oft-soil-site/

    This taxi driver is willing to disclose so much info to a complete stranger like you?

    Should ask Malaysian Insider journalist to interview the taxi driver...

    Just for curiosity, how come some of the major airports can be built on man-made island practically “formed” by dredging of sea sand ?? One good example is the Kansai International airport, Osaka.

    Also, how come high-rise building which is several times heavier than the dynamic load of an airplane can be constructed in muddy estuary and reclaimed land ??

    Just bash the 1gomen on corruption, cronyism and incompetency lah...

    Don't they know that it RAINS in Malaysia? And that hundreds of aircraft is going to "impact" on the runway?

    Well, it seems like we have forumers from all walks of like who appear to be more professionally qualified and technically more competent that those from ICAO (The International Civil Aviation Organisation)..

    once the lrt is extended, we don't have to rely on all these exorbitant taxi prices.

    Rhiga, why is it even with ICAO's ok on KLIA2 to be opened, there are still issues about sinking runway and aprons, use of plywood base...can you blame us for being skeptical about the safety standards of KLIA2? We are not saying we are professionally more qualified, but we have the right as citizens to voice our concerns. Should we just keep quiet about things which are not right?

    Airports have been built on reclaimed land as you so succinctly inform us, but they have done all that they could to ensure proper strengthening of the important runways have been done. Our comments are gleaned from reports which we read where the writers have raised concerns. Tony Pua raised concerns on building over swampy land, if you had read the article I posted here.

    If all our comments seem like 1Gomen bashing that is your privilege to conclude. We are voicing our concern as our tax money is being used to build something whose cost has been ballooning and will increase some more.

    bestial,
    I think you have misinterpreted my points. Please allow me to explain.

    I like to bash the 1gomen and I enjoy every bit of it. I also enjoy reading comments from forumers bashing the 1gomen on corruption, cronyism and incompetency, etc.

    I disputed your post (#106) because I don't think this is correct based on my little understanding on structural geology. Therefore, I quoted examples like Kansai Airport and other heavier structure which can be constructed on even more challenging foundation.

    As you have correctly pointed out, the construction costs has ballooning but the quality of the KLIA2 is not acceptable. This raises questions on how they spent the money and where the massive amount of money has gone.. BUT it has little relation with swampy area not suitable to build an airport.

    Tony Phua and the blogger that you mentioned in your posts have their own agenda when they said swampy area is not feasible to build airport. They know better than me and you that the root cause is misappropriation of money BUT they don't have evidence and hence the soil of the airport being a convenient excuse.

    Don't get me wrong, I despise the 1gomen as much as you do when come to wasting my tax money. However, I would not blame the engineering application as the root cause of the problems if codes and standards have been adhered and complied.

    Lastly, in my opinion, maybe it is good we don't comment on topic that we know very little. ICAO is the aviation regulatory body and after they validated KLIA2 as structurally safe, I doubt there is good ground to comment the structural integrity of the airport.

    Know your KLIA2 so you know how to go about



    The long walk is expected to last 50 minutes

    I just came back from KLIA2. I am impressed, it is so much better than LCCT.

    Pros:

    1. We don't have to walk up and down the stairs from the plane. There's a 'joiner'.

    2. We don't have to walk under the hot sun anymore to get to the plane. Everything is air-cond.

    3. It's not so crowded anymore. There is so much room that I got a chance to sing a song while walking.

    4. We don't have to transfer to a bus after taking the KLIA transit , it's straight all the way from KLIA2 to KL sentral. This cuts down the transfer and waiting time

    5. The scenery of the planes on both sides while walking is so wide and fantastic.

    6. This looks so similar to Bangkok main airport with partition waiting areas.

    7. There are so many more automated passport scanner for Malaysians booths now to reduce the queue time.

    Cons:

    1. I walked for around 20 mins from the plane until the customs exit point. Quite a long walk.

    2. There exist only 2 travellators. They should install more travellators just like Bangkok Suvarnabhum airport.

    3. I've to go through custom check x-ray during exit when in the past , it was not done.

    Some facts and figures on KLIA2





















    Frankly, I say this KLIA2 puts a lot of International Airports to shame.
