Runway Watch - Thursday 21 February 2013

Work has now commenced on the "removal" of the lower (closed) part of the
Long Stay Car Park which is currently higher than the level of the new Taxiway
that will be built on that area parallel to the Runway Extension... 

.... the earth is being moved to the area between Taxiway Echo and Taxiway
Charlie and will ultimately be used as part of the project to "level" the airfield
when the whole Runway is resurfaced during winter 2013/14

As a result Taxiway Echo will now be closed each weekday during daylight hours
between Echo One and Echo Two to allow the contractors to access this area....

.... when Runway 15 is in use as it was today it does not make much difference
to operations but when Runway 33 is in use departures will be via Taxiway Charlie
during these times with aircraft back tracking as required - special arrangements
will be made to allow wide bodied aircraft to use Taxiway Echo (with work suspended)
