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.
NIGHT WORKS AT THE AIRPORT ON 23 and 24 AUGUST
For the next two nights from approximately 10pm to 5.30am, we will be carrying out essential maintenance works on the airport’s apron and manoeuvring area.
This work is required to ensure the ongoing safety and efficiency of airport operations.
We will be placing strict controls on the works to minimise noise and disruption to residents. This includes ensuring all vehicles use non-tonal reversing beepers and using noise barriers and acoustic curtains where practical.
We don’t anticipate this work will cause too much disruption, however, if you have any concerns, please contact our team on 04 385 5100.
