Barwon Heads Airport's Sealed Runway

Written by

Barwon Heads Airport's new tarmac runway has been finished!

In October 2014, the Minister for Aviation, Gordon Rich-Phillips, announced that Barwon Heads Airport is to receive funds from the State Government as part of the Regional Aviation Fund to assist the re-build of the 50 year old runway. The existing runway often caused the airport to be closed, mainly due to water logging.

Works on the new runway began in late November. Huge drainage works, new levelling, new PAL wiring and a thick structural base are all hidden under the beautiful smooth new tarmac runway.

This will permit safer operations, be quieter for our neighbours and allow us to take bookings with confidence, even in winter, which is a great time to see the Ship Wreck Coast !
