NASSAU, BAHAMAS June 3, 2019— On June 17, 2019, Nassau Airport Development Company (NAD) will begin an extensive runway rehabilitation project on Runway 09/27 (soon to be Runway 10/28) and Taxiway India at Lynden Pindling International Airport (LPIA).
According to officials, the work will take place over a four to six-month period with a total capital investment of just under $20 million dollars. For the duration of the project, LPIA will operate as a single runway facility. NAD has put contingency plans in place to reduce the impact to overall operations.
Once completed, the project will result in upgrades to asphalt, which will extend the life of the runways at LPIA. Further, Runway End Safety Areas (RESAs) will be added to reduce the risk of damage to aircraft that overrun the runways. The project will also include the acquisition and installation of new LED approach lights on the runways to help pilots better identify the airport during low visibility operations.
