For my friend in Leigh on Sea - Notice anything different ?
To date the works involve leveling of acquired land, and ground clearance. There have been huge amounts of earth removed, and relocated across the island over the last five months.
This work is in preparation for the taxiway and aircraft parking stands.
As yet the work does not involve or have any apparent impact, on the infrastructure of the airport, or the extension of the runway apart from the land clearance.
What you can see is the hill of earth being stored/landscaped. This may be earth being saved for the planned extension of the runway northwards, at a later date in the project.
