Halifax Stanfield International Airport in Canada is set to begin the second and third phases of its ten-year airfield restoration programme this year.
During the first year of the programme, the airport focused on refurbishing deteriorated areas, including the South Apron, Taxiway Alpha and Runway 05/23.
Aimed at enhancing the airport's traffic flow, the airfield restoration programme is expected to ensure long-term safety and reliability.
Based on extensive weather research and analysis, the construction schedule will help reduce the impact of weather conditions, such as high winds and low visibility, on flights.
During the first phase, which was completed in June, the airport renovated the South Apron without affecting passenger movements or cargo operations.
The second phase of the project will include the redevelopment of a portion of Taxiway Alpha at Halifax Stanfield.
Scheduled for completion by early September, the second phase will be followed by the third, which will involve the renovation of an 800m area of the airport’s main runway 05/23.
The project is expected to be completed near the end of October.
