DIAL undertook re-carpeting works, which included the milling of entire length of the runway and overlaying it with Polymer Modified Bitumen (PMB). Bitumen combined with one or more polymer materials, PMB can withstand heavy-duty traffic and extreme weather conditions.
The final work on the technical integration of the 3,813m-long and 45m-wide RWY 10/28, the GMR-run airport’s second runway, is underway and due to be completed very soon, the operator said. DIAL and partner Honeywell expect system integration to take place by early February.
Meanwhile, the newly constructed fourth runway of the Delhi Airport will be CAT III compliant on January 26. This will give Delhi three CAT III complaint runways.
