P.2018/65 - To examine the possibility of commissioning 107 metres of starter strip/paved runway end safety area ("RESA") to increase the current available runway length from 1463 metres to 1570 for take-off and landing on RW09 and landing on RW27

pdf icon Letter of Comment - Policy & Resources Committee [303kb]

1. To direct the States' Trading Supervisory Board  to consult with the Director of Civil Aviation to determine if:

         a) A 90 metres "undershoot" RESA is acceptable for landings on runway 27
         b) A 90 metres "overrun" RESA is acceptable on runway 09.

             AND

          c) To identify any safety enhancements, including EMAS, which would be required to enable the commissioning of 107 metres of the starter strip/paved RESA or to mitigate the reduction in the length of the RESA from 197 metres to 90 metres.

2. Following that consultation, if there is evidence to suggest that the commissioning of the 107 metres is possible, to direct the States' Trading Supervisory Board to return to the States by March 31st 2019 with a Policy Letter giving, inter alia, indicative estimates of the costs of all components of the commissioning requirements.
