By admin-demo

The US Federal Aviation Administration has approved an Improvement Program for TF Green International Airport at Rhode Island, US.

The project, which will cost $167m, includes extending primary runway 5-23 by 1,530ft to a total length of 8,700ft in order to create additional taxi space and relocating taxiway C to increase the space between the runway and taxiway to 400ft.

A belly cargo, US Postal Service facilities, integrated cargo facilities and a fuel farm will also be built.

The project will also shift the secondary or crosswind runway 16-34 by 100ft to the north so that an engineered materials arresting system can be installed at each end of the runway to create an enhanced runway protection zone.

Hangar 1 will be demolished to remove airspace obstruction, roadways will be relocated, additional parking facilities will be built and a passenger terminal will be modified.
