Repair work on the main North-South (15/33) runway

No effect on passenger traffic

Repairs to the main North-South (15/33) runway of EuroAirport will be carried out day and night between 3 May and 9 July 2011. Passenger traffic will remain unaffected.

The repair work consists of replacing the centre slabs across a width of 18 metres along 1530 metres of the north section of the runway. This work is necessary as construction defects of a technical nature were established following repairs to the main runway in 2006: non-compliant surface condition and cracks in the replaced slabs. The airport was unable to accept the work for this reason and the group of companies responsible for carrying out the work must remedy the defects.

The main repairs will be carried out along 1530 metres of the runway from 3 May to 9 July during the day and at night, the noisiest work being mainly conducted during the day. Repair work will be preceded by preparatory stages from 4 April to 2 May, between midnight and 5 a.m. and will be completed in a final stage from 10 July to 31 August 2011, between midnight and 5 a.m.

The management of EuroAirport will ensure that certain noise control measures will be put into place: demolition work mainly during the day, choice of a demolition technique that disperses noise impact, erection of a mobile noise-inhibiting screen during the works, installation of a specific construction site noise measuring system.
