Lagan wins £17M airport scheme

Belfast-based Lagan Construction has secured a £17M civils scheme at Cambridge International Airport.

The firm will resurface the runway, build a new taxiway and refurbish an existing apron at the East Anglian airport for Marshall Aerospace and Defence Group.

Lagan will also upgrade drainage and lighting systems during a scheme that will see more than 100 workers on shift patterns covering day and night.

It has a target of recycling 98% of materials on site as well as further offsite recycling of materials such as packaging.

Lagan will mobilise its in-house concrete plant, asphalt plant and associated laying equipment on the project, which has started and will run until October 2015.

Marshall Aerospace and Defence Group infrastructure and compliance director Neal Jennion said: “The runway, taxiways and aprons at Cambridge International Airport provide a critical roadway to our expansive aircraft hangars which underpin our business operations.”
