Thank you to ashahkolahi for submitting this interesting video!

Given the swamp-like nature of the soil at the New Parallel Runway site, approximately 330,000 vertical wick drains need to be inserted into the ground followed by 11 million cubic meters of sand on top to compress the soil and squeeze out the water in order to create a solid foundation.
