KINGDOM OF TONGA FUO'AMOTU AIRPORT; REPORT ON AIRPORT DEVELOPMENT (WITH SUPPLEMENTARY REPORT)

The Government of Tonga requested Australian advice on the future development of Fua'amotu airport in November, 1976. The Australian Development Assistance Bureau arranged for a coordinated study to be carried out by two Australian government departments; Department of Construction and Department of Transport. The terms of reference for the study required an engineering evaluation of the existing aircraft pavements, review of existing airport facilities; preparation of a master plan, and recommendations on the staged development with associated costs identifying specific airport development stages for the short, medium and long term. The site investigation and testing associated with this study were carried out during the period 23 May to 30 June, 1977. The supplementary report covers the design of bituminous concrete and the existing runway riding quality. The report is confidential. (A)
