Hi folks,

What is the correct term in English for the service routes that ground vehicles use around the runways and taxiways? I need this for a translation of traffic rules for ground vehicles at airports. If you know it in German as well, that would be great, too! Thanks!

Claudio


It is not enough to be rude; one must also be incorrect.

They're usually referred to as perimeter roads. I know at Atlanta (maybe others) also calls them the NLVR - Non Licensed Vehicular Roadway, meaning that the vehicles that travel on these roads are not required to have traditional license plates.

Depends on the airport in question and its layout. I have known them to be called service roads but at some stations they are called perimeters.

I think too the different terms are used depending on location of the roads themselves. Those through the middle of the field are not called perimeter roads to my knowledge. Service road is a slightly more generic term.

I know they call them service roads at MLI. I think we just redid most or all of ours not too long ago, and I heard someone talking about it.

If anyone knows what it is in German, that would be also helpful. Cheers!

Strictly speaking a "Perimeter Road" goes round the perimeter of the airport and generally is accessible to the public. Roads within the manoeuvering areas are either airside roads or service roads.

Perimeter Road is often the name of a public road that hugs the airfield so I would be cautious about using that term for describing airside access roads.

At JFK we also have a Perimeter Road which goes outside the airport. Inside its a service road. No clue how to say it in German.

correct me if I am wrong the translation from English to German is as follows;

service road - Zufahrtsstraße
permiter road - Umfangstraße

If the road is in front of the aircraft it's call head of stand road, if the road is behind the aircraft they call it tail of stand road.
