Airport taxiways under construction
14 April 2019
Albury Airport is having a major face-lift with reconstruction happening on three of our aircraft taxiways.
The contractors for this airside works project are Antoun Civil who will reconstruct Taxiway Charlie, Alpha & Echo.
Albury Airport have been working around the clock to progress the airside works project. Some delays to the project have occurred due to some unsuitable soil conditions. However, to address this, we have been digging out old pavement and stabilising the soil using lime to harden the subgrade.
In the coming weeks, asphalt will be laid and airfield lighting installed prior to commissioning the new taxi-way. We’re thankful to our airport users for their patience during this time.
The works program typically involves 12 hr days (6am-6pm) Monday-Friday however there will be also a couple of separate occasions when we will be undertaking night works when working in close proximity to the runway.
Works are part of the Albury Airport Masterplan which provides a long-term strategy to meet growing demand for passenger services, emergency and Defence aircraft and aviation-related business expansion. For more information on the master plan visit our Albury Airport Master Plan Page
Albury Airport is a gateway not only to Albury-Wodonga but also to the wider area so by improving the taxiways we’re laying important groundwork that will support businesses and leisure travellers across the entire region.The project follows the completion last year of a major upgrade of the airport to deliver an expanded arrivals hall and passenger lounge, a new baggage carousel and the upgraded Uiver Café & Bar.
