Airside Pavements Upgrade

Aeria Management Group is making a major investment in our aviation infrastructure by upgrading airside pavements at Bankstown Airport. This significant investment in General Aviation will enhance the safety, amenity and conditions of the airport precinct for our customers and other airport users.


  • Rehabilitated pavements
  • Improved operability
  • New and updated line-marking
  • Improved pavement grading


The Airside Pavements upgrade involves the reconstruction of the majority of Taxiway Alpha and re-sheeting works on Taxiway Lima, Mike, Mike 1 and Papa.

The works on Taxiway Alpha will feature a reconstruction of flexible asphalt pavement, involving replacement of the subgrade and base course, new asphalt, reinstatement of airfield ground lighting and reinstatement of line marking.

Taxiway Lima, Mike, Mike 1 and Papa will have existing asphalt milled and overlayed with new asphalt and line marking.


The upgrade will be staged to minimise disruption to airfield operations and ensure the safety of airside users and construction workers.

Construction will occur across eight stages from August 2023 to April 2024, primarily between 7am and 5pm. Two stages are planned for night works (estimated at a cumulative duration of four weeks) to minimise the disruption to daytime airfield operations.

The airfield will remain accessible throughout the works and alternative routes will be provided as required.

Indicative works staging is per the below:


Aeria Management Group will host weekly online meetings from August 2023 for customers and other airport users, to provide updates on the works and to discuss any questions or concerns.
