Lagan Construction is to carry out a runway overlay and taxiway widening scheme at London City Airport.
The existing runway will be overlaid with grooved Marshall Asphalt, three of the taxiways widened and four others reinforced. Drainage will also be refurbished, a new pit and duct network will be installed and upgraded LED lighting will be installed. The value of the multi-million pound job has not been disclosed.
The runway is surrounded by water on three sides and Lagan will import much of the material by boat. Work will start in May and finish in November and airport operations will be unaffected.
Lagan’s director of international operations Steve Turner said: “Airport infrastructure works are a core part of our business and our teams are experienced in providing the engineering skills and technologies necessary to deliver both airside and groundside support facilities.”
