Airport approach lighting consultation - Iqaluit
 

The Department of Economic Development and Transportation is holding a public consultation to discuss replacing the lighting system on the end of the runway at the Iqaluit International Airport.

The current system has reached the end of its lifespan, is difficult to maintain and does not meet existing standards.

The new plan involves improving the accessibility of the Iqaluit International Airport by extending the lighting structure into Koojeese Inlet on a breakwater made from rubble.

We want to hear from residents about these changes, especially if you’ll be boating in this area. Please join us and share your input on April 11, 2017, at 7 p.m. at the Iqaluit Anglican Parish Hall.

For more information, please contact Sim Akpalialuk at 867-975-7772 or SAkpalialuk@GOV.NU.CA.
