Construction and infrastructure company Morgan Sindall has been appointed by Heathrow Airport to work on the £16 million improvement project on phase one of Sierra Taxiway which runs just off the Southern Runway and connects the Cargo areas at Heathrow and the runway to Terminal 4.
The project involves the realignment and reconditioning of the Sierra Taxiway off the Southern Runway of Heathrow airport. This will involve the widening of the taxiway to make way for the new, larger Code F aircraft such as the Airbus A380 and Boeing 777, and the relocation of six remote stands serving the cargo terminal. The taxiway will be surfaced with Marshall Asphalt provided by a coating plant at the airport.
The taxiway rehabilitation project was awarded under a framework appointment to deliver a £1.5 billion programme of upgrades and improvements at Heathrow Airport over the next five years.
The work on Sierra Taxiway is due to complete in October 2015.
