The Taxiway Charlie Link Project involved the construction of about 450 metres of new airside pavement linking two existing taxiways at the Gold Coast Airport as well as asphalt overlay and strengthening of Taxiways Alpha, Delta and Charlie South.

These works were conducted in a secure airside environment - including significant nightworks and temporary runway and taxiway closures. A cement treadt rock base course was required as part of the project.

  • Excavation of in-situ materials including existing asphalt
  • Import and place processed fill materials, including a cement treated crushed rock base course
  • Placement of asphalt surface over the fill platform, including under night shift
  • Installation of airfield lighting and drainage along the linear alignment

The pavements were built in a secure airside environment requiring dedicated management procedures.

A majority of the asphalt works needed to be undertaken at night when the taxiways could be safely closed.
