Toronto Pearson 2018 Runway Resurfacing

June 13, 2018

Dear Resident--

I would like to provide you with an update on the recent runway resurfacing project.

The resurfacing project on runway 06L/24R is now complete. The project involved the resurfacing of the runway, connecting taxiways and some electrical work. During the spring resurfacing project, the General Toronto Airports Authority (GTAA) were able to complete all required work for 2018. They will not need to undergo a second phase of work in the fall as initially communicated.

On average, they milled and paved close to a kilometer-long section of runway every night, for a total of approximately 80,000 m2 of original surface removed and 16,000 tonnes of asphalt paved.
