Reconstruction of Taxiway Alpha and Echo, and Taxiway Charlie

Albury City Council

Antoun were contracted for the reconstruction of two key taxiways at Albury Regional Airport. During the life of airport pavements, much stress is incurred in the form of heavy load bearing, movement and settling with time. These movements also affect the subgrade, and hence reconstruction works were required. The project took place in an operational brownfield environment, where shutdowns were minimal.

Location:

East Albury, NSW

Budget:

$2m – $5m

Duration:

6 months

Sector:

Completed:

2019

The scope of works included

This multi-stage project involved the construction of aircraft strength taxiway pavement including: bulk earthworks, granular pavements and bituminous asphalt surfacing. It also included works to airfield lighting including removal of existing taxiway lights, provision of new conduit and pit system, provision of new taxiway edge lights and airfield cables and modifications to the existing airfield lighting control system. The original scope also included lime stabilisation, however this method was not feasible and other means of stabilisation were required.

The results

A major challenge faced was that lime stabilisation could not be completed due to subgrade areas unable support plant and machinery involved with stabilisation works. In close collaboration with the client, our team devised resourceful methods of backfilling and bridging layers to ensure the successful delivery of the taxiways.
