Whats the hold up with the new runway at the moment? I thought once the court cases were thrown out at the start of the year it was all systems go but they haven't even released the construction tender yet, a 2021 finish date is looking optimistic at the rate things are progressing.
I know there are issues with the noise regulator and planning conditions but would have assumed they could be sorted out during construction
Construction contracts will be signed towards end of summer and work start by end of year.
I think my understanding is that prep works are already in progress, things like diverting roads and site access and so on. I think when works begin, it’s actually on the runway, not the other stuff that the runway needs.
This is correct, prep works more less complete.
