Archerfield Airport Corporation (AAC) encourages all interested members of the public and airport stakeholders to have a say in proposals to extend the airport’s main runway. The public consultation period for this aspect of Project AIM (Airside Infrastructure Modernisation) closes on Thursday March 14, 2019.
The runway extension proposal (as illustrated) is among some $17.5 million worth of airport improvements which will modernise ageing airport infrastructure, improve existing aircraft capability from/to the airport and help cater for anticipated growth in aircraft movements at Archerfield Airport. The improvements have been foreshadowed in successive airport approved master plans since 2000.
Together with replacement of the ageing ground lighting system with LED technology, the runway and associated taxiway improvements will provide safety, environmental, economic and operational benefits for the types and sizes of aircraft currently operating from the airport. As a result, Archerfield Airport will continue to play a support role to Brisbane Airport for the foreseeable future.
Feedback collected during the three-and-a-half month public consultation period will assist AAC to develop a final draft of the Major Development Plan for approval by the Minister of the Federal Department of Infrastructure, Regional Development and Cities.
To download a copy of the preliminary draft Major Development Plan outlining the runway improvements, visit AAC website (www.archerfieldairport.com.au/mdp) or view/purchase from AAC’s offices, top level of the Airport Terminal Building.
Submissions must be emailed by March 14 to email@example.com OR posted to Heather Mattes, General Manager Archerfield Airport MDP, PO Box 747 Archerfield Q 4108.
