Runway 06-24 is the shorter, secondary runway used predominately for operations of (smaller), General Aviation aircraft. Similarly to Runway 08-26, old age of these pavements is necessitating rehabilitation of this runway as well. Below is a list of project scope elements related to Runway 06-24:
- Reconstruction of the centre 30m width of the runway along its full length will be necessary due to deterioration of existing pavement that is more than 30 years old
- Reduced runway length to improve runway visibility at the intersection with Runway 08-26.
- The project will install new electrical infrastructure including runway edge lighting and aircraft guidance signage to allow night time operations on this runway (note there is no change to the overall airport hours of operations, i.e. the airport remains closed between 11:00 p.m. and 6:45 a.m. except for Medevac operations and emergency flights).
