THE SEARCH FOR A SECOND SYDNEY AIRPORT: A DYNAMIC PROGRAMMING SCHEDULING MODEL

A cost-benefit analysis was recently undertaken to assist the Australian Government in the selection of a site for a second Sydney Airport. In order to evaluate sites on a comparable basis, it was necessary to establish, for each possible site, the optimum sequence of developments at both the present airport (Kingsford-Smith Airport) and the second airport, and the split in the traffic between the two airports. This paper describes a dynamic programming scheduling model developed to carry out this optimisation process for each site.
