East Midlands Airport runway rehabilitation, Shrewsbury

About this event

Over years of planning and scrutiny Aecom developed the design and sequence needed to rehabilitate the runway at East Midlands Airport, which, due to its unique operational characteristics resulted in an unusual situation whereby resurfacing and strengthening was completed over five complete weekends at the end 2016.

In this period the renewal of the surface, its drainage, lighting and markings were all completed in a maximum permitted seven weekends, in which 55,000 tons of asphalt was successfully removed and replaced whilst the airport was re-opened for its full weekday flights.

The project used an ECI process for Manchester Airport Group as Client, and the Principal Contractor Galliford Try worked with a key team including COLAS to deliver the work.
