Construction noise

Regular construction and maintenance works are undertaken within the airport, including:

  • Pavement construction and resurfacing
  • General maintenance works to the runway/taxiway infrastructure
  • Capital work projects such as new/replacement buildings
  • Lighting installation and maintenance
  • Work on the seawalls and structures

Operational constraints at the airport often requires that works are carried out during the flight curfew (1am to 6am). We are mindful of the close proximity of residents to Wellington Airport, and our procedures require noise mitigation measures to be planned and implemented for all projects.
