Norfolk Island Airport's runway surface was rehabilitated in a process that included milling, asphalt overlay, line marking, grooving and electrical works such as adjusting the runway lighting.
To contribute to the success of the project, Boral transported and established plant equipment and raw materials to Norfolk Island and developed special asphalt mixes for the project. Crushed aggregates were also sourced from a local quarry.
To ensure the airport remained operational on days of scheduled flights, profiling work was undertaken at night and asphalting during the day. The product met met specification compliance and did not encounter any environmental issues.
Local residents were employed as plant operators and some local trucks and drivers were used to transport asphalt from the plant at Boral's yard at the airport to the paving machine.
The project was completed in 2007.
