Wagga Airport taxiways project gets underway
Published: 14 Aug 2020 12:16pm
Upgrades to the taxiways at Wagga Wagga Airport started recently. The scope of works includes upgrading Taxiways A and B to Code C standards, and extending Taxiway A to the northern threshold of the main runway.
Preliminary works included the relocation of runway lighting cables within the intended works areas, and preparing a temporary taxiway while sections of other taxiways are closed for construction.
The project is majority funded by the State Government for $5M and is expected to be completed in early December this year.
The upgraded taxiways will be capable of accommodating larger aircraft, thereby eliminating the need for such aircraft to backtrack on the runway for take-off, and after landing.
