BRISBANE. As part of the Existing Runway Stop Bars Project, Brisbane Airport Corporation required the installation of 93 new Stopbar related light fittings in the recent March closure. To support this goal ADBSAFEGATE brought a large team of experienced Airfield Lighting Technicians to complete the task.


Difficult places at airports to perform upgrades or maintenance
Major international airports have operationally-critical airside areas that are in almost constant use, making them very difficult places to perform upgrades or maintenance. Exit and Rapid Exit taxiways are such places. Brisbane International schedules in two runway shutdowns a year where this time and safety critical work on the runway and taxiways can be conducted in 5 hour windows over 3 consecutive nights.
