Belgrade Airport begins main runway overhaul

Belgrade Nikola Tesla Airport has begun the overhaul of its main runway following the opening of its inserted runway last month. The 3.400-metre runway, built in 1962, will be overhauled and layered with high-resistance concrete, specially developed for the project, to improve its weight-bearing capacity. Furthermore, it will have a new drainage and LED lighting system, as well as a new system of taxiways, including four rapid exit taxiways (RETs). The RETs will enable aircraft to turn off at higher speeds than regular exit taxiways thereby minimising runway occupancy times. Following the completion of the overhaul, the recently opened inserted runway will be used as a parallel taxiway to the runway.
