Budapest Airport is going to refurbish taxiways P1-P3, L, R and Q in order to ensure the safe, efficient and long term handling of increasing traffic, according to a press release sent to the Budapest Business Journal.
The project is the continuation of EUR 167 million worth of airport developments implemented over the past two years. The value of this project has reached 800,000 euros during this year already.
Utilizing the current, momentarily still moderate traffic, Budapest Airport commenced the works in the busiest areas on the Terminal 2 apron, taking into account factors such as the significant cargo traffic and the expected strong increase in passenger traffic.
Budapest Airport phased the developments in such a way that they should not disturb regular passenger traffic at the airport in any way. As it is now in the case of the ongoing UEFA European Football Championship, construction works affecting aircraft traffic will be suspended for the duration of any future major events, such as the Eucharistic Congress coming up in September, the press release notes.
As part of the refurbishment of the taxiway shoulders this year, the related edge lights, substructures and elements of the rainwater drainage systems located next to the taxiways will also be replaced on approximately 7,000 sqm, and the gullies built into the pavement will also be renovated along a 130 meter section.
