This project is for the renewal of the runways at Echuca Aerodrome.

Investigation determined that the current surfaces have deteriorated and have placed restrictions of size and types of aircraft using the runway.

Designs have been completed to:  

  • Extend and widen the existing Runway 17/35 to the south, to the length required for emergency services aircraft (King Air B350)
  • Expand the existing apron east towards the Terminal building.
  • Increase the pavement strength  of the taxiway and apron.
  • Construct a landside aeromedical shelter to facilitate patient transfer.
  • Lighting upgrade.

This project is part Council funded and part grant funded under Round 3 of the federal government's Regional Airports Program, to be delivered over two financial years.
