Airside Pavements 2022
The VAA has an ongoing pavement restoration and rehabilitation program to ensure safe aircraft operations on YYJ’s aircraft maneuvering surfaces. Unlike vehicle roads that can tolerate some degree of deterioration and subsequent patching, aircraft require traveling surfaces that are in good condition at all times. Foreign Object Debris (FOD) from deteriorated asphalt and concrete must be avoided. This years program involves partial removal and replacement type repairs (mill and fill) on a number of taxiways.
Project tender closed May 2nd and Island Asphalt was the successful vendor.
Asphalt restorations are complete. Paint marking and some minor repairs are still be completed in October.
