KNOCK-IRELAND WEST AIRPORT OPENS REFURBISHED RUNWAY
Ireland West Airport (Knock) has officially opened its new runway following a €11 million refurbishment designed and project managed by Atkins, a member of the SNC-Lavalin Group.
The 2,400m runway – which is the third longest in the country – handles all flights at Ireland West Airport and is central to the airport’s vision to attract one million passengers per year.
Atkins provided specialist design and technical services, supporting main contractors Lagan Aviation and Clare Civil Engineering.
Speaking at the official opening of the runway on Friday 20 September, An Taoiseach, Leo Varadkar, said: “Today’s ceremony marks the successful completion of a truly ambitious project.
This is the first time in its 34-year history that the runway has had a full overlay, including taxi ways, and an upgrade of the instrumentation landing systems.
Atkins led the full design and procurement process for the runway upgrade and aeronautical ground lighting following their appointment by Ireland West Airport as specialist consultants in 2017.
Justin Norman, managing director of Atkins Ireland, said: “The new runway will help Ireland West Airport continue to grow as a key gateway to the West of Ireland and beyond.
