OVERVIEW

Kingston worked with the civilian contractors to construct new sub-stations to provide power to the new runaway lightning system, the construction and installation of a new approach lighting system (including the construction of new foundations and the erection of a new mast and lights). Other works comprise the insertion of over 1000 new ‘primary’ and ‘secondary’ light fittings into the existing runaway and resurfacing the full length and width of the runaway to allow for heavy transports. The works included the remediation of the existing Runaway drainage system and land drainage to reduce the incidence of flooding, which can act as an attraction to birds.The works had to be done during the night time to reduce the down time of the runaway but keeping the bases operational.
