WCN Editorial Team 11 Apr 2016 EUROPE TRANSPORT INFRASTRUCTURE

DAA, formerly known as Dublin Airport Authority, is set to construct a new runway at Dublin Airport.

Estimated to cost €320m, the project will include multiple contracts and packages of works.

Dublin Airport received planning permission in August 2007, which got delayed due to the economic downturn and subsequent decrease in passenger numbers. The current planning permission was granted with 31 conditions attached.

The 3,110m runway will be built 1.6km north of the existing main runway. Enabling works are set to start later in 2016 with construction of the north runway scheduled to start in 2017.

The project will create about 1,200 jobs during its development. It is expected to be completed in 2020.

DAA chief executive Kevin Toland said: "We are progressing our plans to deliver the new runway in accordance with the development and pathway for growth outlined in the Government's National Aviation Policy (NAP).

"Dublin Airport's North Runway will significantly improve Ireland's connectivity supporting trade, foreign direct investment and tourism."
