Construction work taking place a beam the active
runaway.20 workers and 7 vehicles involved
• Duration 20 days
• Bad ground repair
• 2x cranes + 5x lorries
• Day and nite
A paper work need to be done by the Workers to
declare all the document involving the
construction.The Document are including
Vehicle in use
This procedure need to be given to SMC(responsible for
the airport "movement" areas) or Airport Authority to plan
the instruction and schedule for aircraft operation
involving the runaway and for workers to crossing runaway
and doing the maintenance and putting all the machine in
use. Need Approval by Authority
• ATC then create a Notams first before proceed with the
instruction and schedule to the construction workers.
ATC then have to Briefing all the workers all the
instruction and procedure including route to go IN
and go OUT when crossing the runway
All the worker need to be on standby position and
always alert because runway in use is in active mode
Workers also have to inspect all the vehicle is in good
Being handle by qualified personnel
Crossing runway traffic is control by radio communication
to give directions to guards or vehicles maintenance.
Any aircraft, vehicle, or person walking or working in these
areas is required to have clearance from Ground Control.
This is normally done via VHF/UHF radio, but there may
be special cases where other processes are used. Most
aircraft and airside vehicles have radios. Aircraft or vehicles
without radios must respond to ATC instructions via
aviation light signals or else be led by vehicles with radios.
People working on the airport surface normally have a
communications link through which they can
communicate with Ground Control, commonly either by
handheld radio or even cell phone. Ground Control is
vital to the smooth operation of the airport, because
this position impacts the sequencing of departure
aircraft, affecting the safety and efficiency of the
In this case many big machine and vehicles are in use
and many workers also are involve in the aerodrome
ATC need to create a plan to coordinating all the
vehicles to avoid being obstruction to aircraft and
provide safety movement.
Coordinating have to be made for construction ,a/c
movement on ground, for take off & landing operation
and aircraft in circuit holding pattern
Has to be made precisely to avoid collision
Object should be marked and if the runway is used at
night, lighted if such marking and lighting is
considered necessary to ensure its avoidance.
object should be coloured
Exceeds 4.5m in both dimensions.
Pattern should consists of rectangles of not less
than 1.5m and not more than 3m on a side, the
corners being of darker colour.
Orange and white or red and white in colour.
During runway construction airport should consider
visible holding position signage for using or maybe
have to close part of the runway. The signage must be
visible at day and illuminated at night.
Satco or Airport Authority has responsibility to declare
restriction to any area in surrounding aerodrome that
in use .
All action must be refer to Local Instruction
Automatic Terminal Information System(ATIS) need to be
issued to provide info to Pilot and other Personnel that
involve in flight operation
Position & direction of the traffic in relation to aircraft
Construction / maintenance work on / near maneuvering
Rough / broken surfaces on / near maneuvering
area, marked or not
In this case construction near runaway for long time period
Shall be displayed around, on top of or around highest
edge of the object.
Flags shall not increase the hazard presented by the
object they mark.
Colour: Orange or combination of two triangular
sections, orange and white or red and white.
Colour: White and red alternately
White and orange alternately
After construction has been done controller need to
write a report in Log Book and cancel NOTAMs
Continue controlling flight operation normally
