Video | Lagan completes £8M runway RAF Gibraltar resurfacing project

Lagan, Gibraltar, RAF

Lagan Construction has completed a £7.9M runway resurfacing programme at RAF Gibraltar.

Source: Lagan Construction

Commissioned by the Defence Infrastructure Organisation (DIO), the runway is almost 2km long and a third of it juts into the sea. It’s also crossed by a four lane road, the only one linking Gibraltar to Spain.

The work took four months and involved 15,000 tonnes of asphalt.

DIO deputy head of programme and projects delivery international David Graham said: “Investing in infrastructure to enable military capability is a huge part of what DIO delivers for defence so I’m really pleased with how quickly and smoothly this project has progressed. This was only possible because of how closely DIO, Lagan Construction, RAF Gibraltar and the government of Gibraltar worked together to mitigate any possible problems.”
