Mumbai: Mumbai International Airport Limited (MIAL), on Saturday said that it has completed the re-carpeting and reconstruction of the secondary runway at the city's Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport (CSIA).

"MIAL has completed the re-carpeting and reconstruction of runway 14/32 (Secondary Runway) at Mumbai Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport (CSIA)," a press release said here.

This project which is a part of the overall modernisation process of the CSIA was completed in just over six-months, it said.

"The completion of the reconstruction of the secondary runway is part of our overall master plan for modernisation of CSIA, which took extensive planning and co-ordination amongst various agencies," MIAL's Managing Director, GV Sanjay Reddy, said.

With a smoother surface, the runway also sports a new and advanced lighting system providing better visibility for landing aircraft, the release said.

The runway shoulders on either side have been widened from 7.5-meters to 15-meters, thus making it compatible for operations by Code F aircraft such as the A380, it said.

Five new taxiways including two new rapid exit taxiways have also been constructed along the secondary runway to improve the overall efficiency and reduce runway occupation time, the release said.

A Runway End Safety Area (RESA) has also been created along runway 32.

With the completion of reconstruction work, both the runways at CSIA will now be available once again for simultaneous operations, the release said.
