“We have some major runway works being undertaken at the moment.
Our contractor is working overnight to keep the flight disruption to a minimum. We are re-surfacing the runway apron and taxi ways at the airport over the next 12 weeks, the main works have started now and are expected to last around 6-8 weeks. The works are costing £1.7 million and will see the surface being strengthened and improve the integrity of the areas.
I have briefed our contractor of the urban environment and they are fully aware of keeping noise to a minimum, but unfortunately due to the nature of the works there will be some noise generated.”
** STOP PRESS – Sunday 5th June – Having received a complaint from a resident about overnight noise, I have been in touch with the City Council and the Airport Manager to raise the concerns highlighted.
