In June 2017 Council awarded a contract to Aerodrome Management Services for the upgrade to the airfield lighting and signage at the Karratha Airport.
The work on the taxiways and runways lighting and signage will ensure that the airport maintains its compliance with CASA requirements. The new lights will be LED reducing the airports energy consumption.
Passengers will see preparation works to install footings and electrical conduits taking place over the period 21 to 31 August 2017.
In November the contractor will return to site to install the new airfield signs and to upgrade the taxiway and runway lighting and associated electrical equipment.
