Saint John Airport to be a part of a massive modernization program

The New Brunswick administration has made it public that the Saint John Airport will undergo renovation as a part of an airport modernization program, which is estimated to cost nearly USD 20 million. The authorities further stated that the larger part of the funding, assessed at nearly USD 14 million, will be made by the provincial & federal administration in Canada.

Sources cite that the investment in the multi-year face lifting activities at the airport in Brunswick is a part of the venture referred as The Safety Related Airfield Modernization Investment Program, which was inaugurated in the presence of New Brunswick PM & Federal Transport Minister.

The New Brunswick Premier Brian Gallant has announced that the investments in restoration activities at Saint John Airport will favorably leverage the economic growth of the region. The province is likely to provide funds worth USD 4 million for the face lifting activities via a strategic infrastructure initiative. The regional development corporation’s program will monitor the operations of airport runways and strive for improving its infrastructure along with the safety features, such as encompassing a new lighting on the primary runaway’s center line.

The federal government of Canada has declared the investment of nearly USD 10 million in the airport upgradation scheme. The funds will help in rehabilitating two airport runways, including repairing the major cracks in the airport’s pavement & drainage system and restoration of public taxiway & aprons. The owners of the airport are also likely to support the restoration activities by investing nearly USD 6 million in the venture.

Marc Garneau, the Transport Minister of New Brunswick, has claimed that the province is completely supporting the ventures as they would assist in proficiently shifting commercial products to the market and the travelers to their destinations. He further stated that the strategic decision to renovate the airport will assure the customers that the transportation system in Canada remains efficient as well as highly competitive.
