Airport Upgrade

Post by Thistle on Mon 31 Oct 2011, 9:19 am

So our esteemed minister for the environment tells us it was a close call to sign the contract with lagan...i would be interested to know why for the past few months trant have been preparing groundworks at the back end of the airport ..offices have appeared a couple of fields away from houses on the route des bas courtil..it certainly appears the signing was only a wink and a nod x Rant

Is it not possible for anyone to win a contract for work in Guernsey without being accused of underhand dealings ? It seem to happen on all major contacts that someone starts insinuating things.

A close call getting it signed on time with the contractor is different to knowing the decision had been made to go ahead with the project and making preparations just in case it is signed on time.

One of your States members is though. Talking about using his own money to fund an enquiry into the bidding process.



The hospital extension farce was another case in point. That cost you millions extra because of bitching against the Guernsey company who were the cheapest bidder.

Trust me this was all sorted out ages ago , the states did their usual ploy saying it was a close thing . We did not need outside contractors at all just a few advisers , our tradesmen could do this , the situation at the moment is things are getting tight on the construction side of things . I know this AGAIN why bring in labour when we have loads , and before any one says they are specially trained "CRAP"

Don't understand your comment here in respect of what I said. Did you read it correctly ?

The work at the back of the airfield is for the pollution containment tanks which will stop any pollution entering the stream behind the silversmiths, this was going to happen irrespective of any runway developement.

thank you for that ploughman ...@kingcole yes i did read it correctly.i havent heard of any deputy who has suggested using his own m,oney to investigate the bidding process..as for the hospitalthat arguement was put to bed a long time ago..yes i thought it was wrong that fallas didnt get the hospital contract . looking at some of the damp stains on the ceilings in there at the moment i think the contractor should be made to go back in there and do the relevant repairs x

The Guernsey grapevine says that the main contractor is bringing tractors and trailers to avoid buying road diesel . Time will tell.

Tractors still need to use road diesel unless they are used for agriculture.

Airport closing for two days

There will be no flights in and out of Guernsey Airport for two days this week.

Anyone planning on travelling should be aware the Airport will close from Monday night (26th November) at 9pm and will not re-open until Thursday at 6.30am.

During the closure, contractors will work round-the-clock to reconstruct a 50-metre stretch of runway and extend the safety area. Four thousand tonnes of materials will be laid.

The States are calling the work "one of the most significant and complex stages" of the 23 million upgrade of the Airport.

There is one more closure to come next week. The airport will close from 9pm on Monday 3 December, and the airfield will re-open at 6.30am on Thursday 6 December.

Around 800 airport neighbours have been warned that the work will create an increase in night-time noise. Project manager Gerry Prickett said neighbours had been extremely understanding and positive about the works.

He said: "For a project on this scale, you are not going to be able to avoid there being some disturbance, but by and large most people appreciate the importance of this work and have been very tolerant and understanding."

Special arrangements will be in place at the airport in case of any medical emergencies.

Lagan Construction, who is carrying out the work, operates a 24-hour hotline, and anyone directly affected by the construction works is being encouraged to call 238222 to report any undue disturbance.
