Slipforming machines from Wirtgen have been used to pave the runway, taxiways and aircraft parking facilities at Indonesia's Yogyakarta International Airport
A new runway surface has been constructed at Yogyakarta International Airport in Indonesia.
This airport has been developed to replace Adisutjipto International Airport of Yogyakarta, which is no longer able to meet capacity demands. The runway has been in use since the beginning of May 2019, when the first aircraft landed on the new runway.
Construction of this new airport is being carried out in two phases and the facility will cover a site of 645ha and be able to handle up to 15 million passengers/year when it is fully commissioned.
Concrete paving equipment from Wirtgen has been used to pave the main runway, the taxiways and aircraft parking areas. In all, 11 slipform pavers from Wirtgen have been used at the airport. The completed runway measures 3.25km in length and is 45m wide.
