A large-scale series of developments spanning several years and including the maintenance of the airport taxiway system is under way. This year, as part of the work phase lasting until the fall, taxiways P1-P3, L, R and Q will be refurbished, thus facilitating the safe, efficient and long term handling of the increasing traffic.
As a press bulletin by Budapest Airport reports, the project is the continuation of EUR 167 million worth of airport developments implemented over the past two years. The value of this project, which is one of many currently under way, has reached EUR 800,000 during this year already.
Utilizing the current, momentarily still moderate traffic, Budapest Airport commenced the works in the busiest areas on the Terminal 2 apron, taking into account factors such as the significant cargo traffic and the expected strong increase in passenger traffic. Budapest Airport phased the developments in such a way that they should not disturb regular passenger traffic at the airport in any way. As it is now in the case of the ongoing UEFA European Football Championship, construction works affecting aircraft traffic will be suspended for the duration of any future major events, such as the Eucharistic Congress coming up in September.
As part of the refurbishment of the taxiway shoulders this year, the shoulders of the taxiways, the related edge lights, substructures and elements of the rainwater drainage systems located next to the taxiways will be replaced on approximately 7,000 square meters, and the gullies built into the pavement will also be renovated along a 130-meter section.
As part of major airport development, the project has been preceded over the past two years by major investments such as the air cargo handling complex called the BUD Cargo City, thanks to which the volume of air cargo handled by Budapest Airport is breaking records on a monthly basis, and the modern, spacious and accessible Pier 1 connecting to Terminal 2A.
