International Airport Acceleration Of Construction

Construction work on the International Airport at Argyle is expected to accelerate in the coming months, as the International Airport Development Company, IADC moves to complete the project.

The IADC says the final layer of concrete pavement works at the site got underway last week.

Communications Officer at the IADC, Jennifer Richardson says the Company is aiming to have all work on the project substantially completed by the end of December this year.

Miss Richardson said this will be followed by testing and certification, in anticipation of the start of operations in the summer of 2015.

The IADC says the final pavement works are being done using hydraulic concrete, and are concentrated in the area of the Commercial Aviation Apron. The Commercial Apron will serve international passengers and will allow for the simultaneous parking of mixed fleet aircraft.
