Mumbai International Airport Limited (MIAL) has completed the re-carpeting and reconstruction work on the secondary runway at Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport (CSIA) in Mumbai, India.

The reconstruction of runway 14/32, part of the overall modernisation process of the CSIA, was carried out in six months.

The runway now has a smoother surface and a new and advanced lighting system that will provide better visibility for aircraft landing.

The runway shoulders on either side have been widened from 7.5m to 15m to support operations by Code F aircraft such as the A380.

Five new taxiways, including two new rapid exit taxiways, have been constructed along the secondary runway to improve the overall efficiency and reduce runway occupation time.

A runway end safety area (RESA) has also been created along runway 32.
