Ufa airport started the reconstruction of the airfield
The work is scheduled for completion at the end of July 2017.
From the middle of March the reconstruction works are in progress to replace the cover on taxiways E, as well as on taxiways F and D in the zone of abutment to the paved runway number one at Ufa International Airport. The old paved surface is being replaced with concrete material of increased strength, which will allow to enlarge the carrying capacity of the reconstructed elements of the airfield. In addition, aerodrome lighting equipment will be reconstructed and hard shoulders will be reinforced with asphalt concrete.
The reconstruction of airfield’s pavement is carried out in the conditions of the operating airport, for the period from March 30, 2017 till July 15, 2017. Due to this, the route of taxiing of aircraft for the arrival and departure had to be temporarily increased. New parking stands for airplanes have been organized, as well as the movement scheme for vehicles and special equipment has been changed.
