About the event

This breakfast briefing, kindly sponsored by Dublin Airport, will focus on the 30 year life of Runway 10-28 and the most recent rehabilitation and enhancements of the runway and associated taxiway infrastructure.

Dublin Airports Runway 10-28 is considered by many as the work horse that has been one of the key enablers of economic growth on the island of Ireland over the last 30 years. A lot of the headlines in recent years have centred on the proposed new Northern Runway that is currently under construction and will go into operation in late 2021.

This presentation will give some insights into the history of the Runway, the business case for the rehabilitation project, the project planning aspects, the delivery aspects and the challenges encountered from project inception to completion through a period of unprecedented growth in passenger numbers at Dublin Airport.
