Up­grade now fin­ished for Monto Aero­drome

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

THE Monto Aero­drome has now been up­graded thanks to the Queens­land Govern­ment’s fund­ing.

North Burnett mayor Rachel Cham­bers said the suc­cess­ful fin­ish­ing of the Monto Aero­drome up­grade fin­ished the North Burnett Aero­drome Up­grade project, which had in­cor­po­rated up­grades to Gayn­dah, Mundubbera and Monto aero­dromes.

“The Monto Aero­drome project in­cor­po­rated a com­plete re­seal of the run­way and taxi­way pave­ment in­clud­ing an as­phalt cor­rec­tor on a sec­tion of the run­way to aid drainage, and up­grade of the aero­nau­ti­cal ground light­ing,” Cr Cham­bers said.

“The Gayn­dah, Monto and Mundubbera aero­dromes are of key strate­gic sig­nif­i­cance to the re­gion,” she said.

“Each of these aero­dromes plays an im­por­tant role in their lo­cal com­mu­nity, as ac­cess for busi­ness flights, lo­cal flights, and most im­por­tantly, pro­vid­ing for a level of emer­gency med­i­cal ser­vices ac­cess, in­clud­ing the Royal Fly­ing Doc­tor Ser­vice, as an al­ter­na­tive to time con­sum­ing road travel ac­cess.”
