Traffic flow, runways, and landing systems

High, just wanted to throw in my two cents.

As airports get larger and more modern, I’m sure you’ve considered upgrading length, width, and even depth of runway and taxiway surfaces.

In addition, modern airports that are capable, designate exclusive take-off and landing runways to facilitate traffic flow. This is reflected in their normal taxi procedures as well, to minimize congestion on ground control frequencies. There are usually specific configurations based upon prevailing winds, current visibility and noise abatement procedures for that airport. Add in the occasional runway closure for normal maintenance (think rubber scrapping) and extended construction projects, and it gets complicated.

Also, have you considered the evolution of landing systems and making them runway specific, and how this will relate to your daily operation and costs of your airports?
