Runway At Bali’s Ngurah Rai To Undergo A Yearlong Repaving
The sole runaway at Bali’s International Ngurah Rai Airport will be receiving a much deserved upgrade worth at least Rp 120 billion. This is according to Trikora Harjo, the General Manager at PT Angkasa Pura I (PTAP), the company that operates the airport, who said that the budget will be used to strengthen and thicken the runaway beginning April 2016.
Officials also said that the work on the runway, which measures 3,000 meters long and 45 meters wide will take one year to complete. To avoid the disruption of flights, the work will therefore be conducted between 2:00am and 7:00am, when there are few flights in operation.
The last repaving for the Ngurah Rai International Airport runway was completed five years ago. According to officials, the new repaving and strengthening of the runaway would allow for the landing of an Airbus 380.
