Runway Watch - Thursday 9 January 2014

Work is currently in progress to complete the final section of Birmingham Airport's Runway Extension....

.... work started from the south end of the site while the old A45 and Airport Perimeter Road were still in use

.... now both roads are closed - and the new routes in use - the remaining "gap" between
the start of the Runway Extension and the existing Runway is being filled in
