TQE20/35 Contractor/Project Manager to oversee rehabilitation of Kempsey Airport apron and taxiway pavements

Kempsey Airport is located within the Kempsey Shire Local Government Area in the Mid North Coast region of New South Wales, Australia. The airport provides a vital service to the community, acting as an operational base for:

  • Rural Fire Services’ aviation fire control activities
  • Royal Flying Doctor Service and other public and private aero-medical services
  • Pilot training
  • General aviation (GA) pilot activity
  • Aviation maintenance
  • Charter operations

The current GA pavement apron and taxiways between the hangers and fuel facility is in poor condition and requires improvement to mitigate safety risks to aircraft and personnel. Essential pavement works are required to rehabilitate and extend the apron to accommodate larger aircraft, increase accessibility for support vehicles, improve functionality and mitigate potential safety concerns. 

The proposed works will improve the safety and accessibility of Kempsey Airport. The works have been approved by Kempsey Shire Council at the 28 July 2020 Council meeting with a resolution: "…to enter into a funding deed for the airside pavement improvement and upgrade projects announced under the Regional Airports Program."

The project requires an appropriately experienced contractor to manage the procurement, implementation of construction works, meet the project objectives and reporting requirements, and complete the project on time and to budget.
