HIAL is investing around £4million in the refurbishment of Campbeltown Runway.
Essential refurbishment work on the runway required the airport to be closed from Monday, 4 October to Wednesday, 10 November. The airport has now reopened.
The runway refurbishment work involves:
- Reducing the main runway width to 30m
- 100mm asphalt overlay
- Geo-synthetic asphalt reinforcement
- Airfield ground lighting to suit 30m runway width.
This significant investment will preserve the long-term future of the runway and the airport will be fully operational again by the end of the year.
