EC$1.7M AIRPORT RESURFACING TAKES OFF

After 20 years the island’s lone airport is on the verge of a major resurfacing to its runway, at the estimated cost of EC $ 1.7 million.

Managing Director of Grenada Pavement Construction Company Limited Handell Budhlall, says the work involves the complete resurfacing of the 2400x53 feet runway and apron with cold mix asphalt.  

The work, which begins on June 1st, should be completed in two (2) months.  

“It’s badly ravelled and has deteriorated as it’s almost 20 years since work was last done on the runway” said the experienced Engineer. 

There have been cases where tires of aircrafts blew while landing on the rugged airstrip. Several passengers have repeatedly complained about the dangerous state of the facility.  Daily work will begin late in the evening following the departure of the day’s final flight.
