Echuca Aerodrome

  • Project typeInfrastructure
  • Project value$4.8 million
  • Project scheduleDelivery
  • Completion Date31 July 2024

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.

Major upgrade works to the Echuca Aerodrome have begun, with work on the new helipad completed and the main runway works now underway.

Works will involve extension of the runway by 152 metres, widening of the runway by an extra three metres and reconstruction of the main runway to a standard to receive the heaviest current fixed wing aircraft used by aeromedical services.

Additionally, the new helipad will be constructed to receive the heaviest current helicopters used by aeromedical services.

The project will also include installation of a shelter for use by aeromedical services and the reconstruction of sealed taxiways and aprons to receive the heaviest current fixed wing aircraft by aeromedical services.

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.
