Improvements to 'Bravo' Taxiway

From Jersey Airport,
17 January 2019

​Work has started on essential improvements to the 'Bravo' taxiway at Jersey Airport.

The work, which is being undertaken by local civil construction firm Brenwall and UK-based Volker Fitzpatrick, will take up to three months to complete and involves the removal and replacement of a section of the current concrete taxiway, west of the main aircraft parking stands.

The work, which won't affect operational activities is being carried out Monday through to Friday as well as Saturday mornings during daylight hours. It is not anticipated that work will need to be carried out at night. During the period when the 'Bravo' taxiway is 'closed', aircraft will be redirected via an alternative route on and off the runway; therefore, not impacting upon passenger journeys.

A budget of £800k, which will be entirely funded by Ports of Jersey, has been allocated to this essential maintenance project.
