  • Budget: € 352,959.44
  • Dates: 14/06/2010 – 08/11/2011
  • Budget for the work subject to control and supervision: € 10,918,000.00.
  • The purpose of this work was to upgrade the runway paving service conditions, focusing on surface evenness and the friction coefficient in line with ICAO recommendations.
  • Vitoria airport has a flight runway with the denomination 04-22 and which is 3,500 metres long and 45 metres wide, built in hydraulic concrete, using 7.5 x 7.5 m slabs, and a lateral taxiway of 3,720 x 300 metres.
  • The work done involved an extension of the paving of the 04-22 runway using asphaltic concrete, 3,500 m long and 45 m wide, and composed of two layers, a first layer of 6 cm, Type 40 BC, open type mix or draining, with a high rubber content. The second layer, the taxiing layer, is of 4 cm and type 30, also of the type known as open or draining and with high rubber content to guarantee friction and texture.
