runway closure

Post by farnboroughrob » Mon May 14, 2018 6:36 pm

Hi last year it was announced that Northolt would be closed for several months in Spring 2018 for runway works. Is this still going to happen?

last I heard, closure for fixed wing aircraft has been put back to July.
So resurfacing can happen when its frosty and then will have to be resurfaced again in a couple of years, either that, or so there will be weather delays and the contractors will require more money. :whistle: :roll:

From memory,runway was due to closed between the end of April to October.....This has now been delayed to end of July,apparently to accommodate the upcoming visit of Trump to UK,although no one seems to know exactly what part of the country he will arrive at/go to!

Possible related to this story News from Biggin hill

Flying clubs have been issued notice to leave by the autumn, the increase in exec movements some 23% and safety concerns are the driving factors.

As posted under Benson last month, a contact in the RAF has told me they are not now expecting the BAe146 to relocate to Benson until 2019.
