FCC Construcción completes the modernization project for the take-off and landing runway at Bacau airport (Romania)
FCC Construcción has completed the construction project for the take-off and landing runway of one of the reference airports in Romania.
Its scope included the demolition of the existing runway, which has a length of 2,500 meters and a width of 45 meters, as well as the restoration of a new runway. The new take-off runway has at its end a platform for the return maneuver of the aircraft. The total landing area, including the return platform, is more than 115,000 square meters. The project also included the rehabilitation of the traffic lanes, the expansion of the embarkation and disembarkation platform as well as the construction of the airport's perimeter security road, the installation of beacons on the new runway and the security platform.
With the new infrastructure, a population of more than 180,000 inhabitants will benefit. At present, the Bacau airport has a traffic of more than 78,000 passengers per quarter. With the execution of this infrastructure, an increase in air traffic will be made possible, allowing an increase in take-off and landing operations at the airport.
