Reconstruction of Taxiway Alpha, Echo & Charlie
The Albury Airport Masterplan provides a long term plan (15years) for the expansion of the Albury Airport to service growing regional demand for Regular Passenger Transport (RPT) services, emergency and defence aircraft, and aviation related business expansion and operation. Short term priorities are the current focus, with the works program comprises reconstruction of Taxiway’s Alpha, Echo and Charlie.
The taxiway upgrades aim to improve Regular Public Transport (RPT) and General Aviation (GA) efficiencies by reducing take-off and landing delays through the improvement and additions of runway entry and exit points. This will be a benefit to passengers and aircraft users, as it means potentially reducing delays. It also means that with improved taxiways, the aircraft have more efficient and safer options when landing and exiting the runway.
Project works are scheduled to commence on 11 February 2019 and are expected to be completed within approximately 16 to 19 weeks. The works will include the reconstruction and upgrade of Taxiway Charlie (C) from a Code B rated Taxiway to a Code C rated taxiway, as well as the reconstruction, reshape and widening of the shoulders of the existing Code C rated Taxiway’s Alpha (A) and Echo (E). The works will be carried out in two separate stages, as outlined below:
- Stage 1 - Reconstruction of Taxiway Charlie - estimated commencement date 11 February 2019.
- Stage 2 – Reconstruction of Taxiway Alpha and Taxiway Echo - estimated commencement date 8 April 2019.
The estimated completion date for this project is May 2019.
