repairs at Montréal-Trudeau Airport
In May, in efforts to continue meeting infrastructure reliability and safety standards, Aéroport de Montréal carried out repairs on its main runway, 06L-24R, at Montréal-Trudeau Airport. This project required nearly 30,000 tonnes of paving, 72,000 m² of demolition levelling, 72,000 m² of fine levelling, and electrical and drainage works.
Work began on May 7 and set to last 77 days. The runway was closed to air traffic; as a result, 600 take-offs and landings a day were reassigned. In efforts to reduce the impact of the project on the summer season, work is scheduled to be competed on July 17 at the latest.
Currently, 3D robot systems are being used for grading, excavation, and even tractor operations. The Montreal Division has met the challenge of using this system for planing and asphalt-paving operations. This method ensures client satisfaction as it provides exceptional finishing quality and save hours of surveying work. By using this method, there was no need to install nearly 38 km of rope.
