Lift-off for €15m Shannon Airport Runway project
8th October 2017 - 7:57pm
Shannon Airport and Lagan Asphalt Group have announced the completion of a €15m resurfacing project on Ireland’s longest runway eight weeks ahead of schedule. The refurbishment work on the main Shannon runway, which commenced in May of this year, included the full rehabilitation of 2,400m of runway surface, the replacement of runway edge and centre line lighting with energy efficient LED lighting, ducting and other associated works. A team of 90 people and 70 vehicles worked on the runway at night to avoid disrupting flights to and from Shannon Airport. At the peak of construction project, the Lagan Asphalt group laid the equivalent of one football pitch of refurbished runway surface each night.
