"After more than two years of work, Los Angeles International Airport is proud to announce that we have finished the fourth and final Runway Safety Area project, which creates additional safeguards for all of our passengers and ensures that the planes of today and the future will have the space to take-off and land safely and within Federal Aviation Administration guidelines," said Keith Wilschetz, Deputy Executive Director of Operations and Emergency Management at Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA).
Design standards require a 1000 foot Runway Safety Area under the control of the airport beyond the declared landing distance available.
To "shift" the runway, the scope of work includes a new runway and runway safety area, new taxiways, apron reconstruction, relocation of 1,900 feet of road, removal of obstacles and obstructions (including several buildings), drainage improvements, utility relocation, security fencing, contaminated soil remediation, and relocation of FAA NAVAIDS.
Runway 24L/6R on the north side of the airport will remain shortened until September 2016 while construction crews make improvements to the Runway Safety Area, which is on the end of the runway and is designed to provide an "extra margin of safety" for landing and departing aircraft, according to Los Angeles World Airports.
The largest portion of funding will go to Indiana County/Jimmy Stewart Field, with USD4.2m awarded for the reconstruction and extension of runway 10-28, to provide a full runway safety area.
O'Brien said the grants will be used to proceed with the installation of the Emergency Material Arresting System for the runway safety area at the end of Runway 11, to meet updated FAA-mandated standards for all airports.
$1,640,877 to Great Falls International Airport for runway repairs, improve the runway safety area, expand the snow-removal equipment building and install runway sensors.
the project will include a new runway and new runway safety area; new taxiways; apron reconstruction; removal of obstacles and obstructions, including multiple buildings; relocation of 1,900 feet of road; a new maintenance building; design support of FAA NAVAIDS; drainage improvements; utility relocates; security fencing; and contaminated soil remediation.
North Carolina airport is constructing runway safety area The Johnston County Airport, which is near Clayton, N.C., is building an emergency runway safety area for the general aviation airport.
US Airways Express Flight 2495 came to rest 46m (150ft) into the 123m arresting bed, which provides the equivalent of an FAA-required 305m runway safety area. There were no injuries.
"The airplane continued beyond the runway threshold and through the approximately 1000-foot-long runway safety area before impacting airport lighting, navigation facilities, a perimeter fence and concrete marker posts.
