£9m project for Ronaldsway Airport completed

Runways strengthened and resurfaced

A project to strengthen and resurface large areas of runway at Isle of Man Airport has been completed on time and within budget.

The project cost £9 million and took more than 45,000 hours of work.

It involved the strengthening and resurfacing of the short cross runway and the main taxiway parallel with the main runway.

The starter strips at each end of the main runway were also widened and runway and taxiway lighting was also renewed.

The first phase was undertaken by Colas (IOM) Ltd between October 2019 and March 2020.

The second was initially delayed from 2020, due to the pandemic, but once work commenced in spring 2021 the contract was delivered ahead of programme, and within budget, between March and September.
