Upcoming Runway Construction
« on: January 29, 2018, 03:55:41 PM »


Resurfacing work on one of Canada’s busiest runways (06L/24R) is planned to begin as early as April 23, 2018. This project will consist of electrical work and the milling and resurfacing of runway 06L/24R to keep the surface in top condition and ensure continued safe operations.

In comparison to spring 2017’s rehabilitation of the 05/23 runway, this work does not require a closure of the runway during peak hours. We have purposefully scheduled the work for off-peak hours when flight traffic is lowest. We recognize that resurfacing will create an impact for some due to aircraft noise and we apologize for any inconvenience this causes. The runway will be re-opened daily to enable normal operations.

There is the possibility that the north/south runways may see increased traffic between 10 p.m. and 12:00 a.m. The preferential runway assignment will still apply to the defined nighttime hours which are 12:00 a.m. to 6:30 a.m.

The GTAA began publicizing the upcoming resurfacing work on January 23, 2018, starting with elected officials. Officials with constituents neighboring the airport were informed so that they were equipped to speak to their network and engage actively in discussion.

Our construction schedule is being developed using feedback from our stakeholders. We are working to balance the complex needs of our operations and efforts to minimize disruption, with the need to complete this work. A more detailed timeline will be provided in advance of the anticipated start date and regular updates will be provided to our passengers and our neighbours throughout the project.
