Airport upgrades runway to comply with regulations

| 09/11/2011

(CNS): Officials from the Cayman Islands Airports Authority (CIAA) said that it will be undertaking work on the apron and runway at Owen Roberts International Airport over the next month that may disturb neighbours in the area. The work involves the creation of taxiway shoulders in order to comply with international standards and will be carried out at night when flight operations end and stop by 5:00 am each morning before the airport reopens. The project, which is being carried out by Island Paving Ltd, involves excavation of the grassed areas, grading, compaction and paving of the taxiway shoulders.

“The CIAA regrets any inconvenience, however minor, which may be experienced by neighbouring properties from the use of bright lights and heavy equipment, including dump trucks, which are removing debris from the site to a designated location on airport property,” a spokesperson stated.
