MBJ Airports Limited - Runway Extension and Associated Works Project

Taxiway Echo for the Runway 07-25 Extension and Associated Works at the Sangster International Airport, Montego Bay, Jamaica

Surrey Paving and Aggregate has been awarded the contract for the  construction of the Taxiway Echo for the Runway 07-25 Extension and Associated Works at the Sangster International Airport,

The Project is slated to commence on May 01, 2020. The scope of works includes the following:

Runway extension and the establishment of RESAs, Perimeter Road, and Fencing.  The Runway 25 (East End) pavement will be extended by 408 meters to the east. The width of the runway will remain unchanged (46m), however, there will be 7 m shoulders on each side, reaching a total width of 60 m. The Runway 25 extension works will include the construction of a new runway turn pad, as well as grading and drainage improvements to the extended runway. In addition to the extension of the runway, a 60 m blast pad and 90x92 m Runway End Safety Area (RESA) will be constructed at the Runway 25 end. Relocation of the Runway 07 (West End) threshold 60 m to the east will accommodate the development of a 90 m x 92 m RESA at the western end, making Runway 7-25 compliant with the ICAO standards.

The primary objective of the overall project is for Sangster International Airport to become compliant with international aviation safety standards (ICAO) by the construction of a Runway End Safety Area (RESA) at both ends of the extended runway, a Jet Blast Screen and the relocation of the NAVAIDS at the western end of the runway.
