Sangley Airport Development is rolling super fast as the Transport Department(DOTr)is bidding ₱552.87 million for runway rehabilitation and asphalt overlay of the entire stretch to prepare it to civil aviation traffic and domestic turboprop operations.

Phase 1A of the project also involves runway grade correction, ramp construction, drainage system, construction of four hangars with a floor area of roughly 1,600 square meters (sq.m.) each, and 150 seater passenger terminal building (PTB) construction with an area of 800 sq.m. along with offices and vehicular parking area and other building facilities.

Twelve firms expressed interest in bidding for the said Project when they attended the pre-bid conference yesterday.

Phase 1B of the project to bidded out next year has a price tag of ₱707 million (see our earlier report here). Sangley airport expressway that will connect NAIA in 30 minutes for international transfer is also now pending with the Toll Regulatory Board for approval.

The project when completed is expected to reduce air traffic congestion at the country’s main international gateway, the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) when all general aviation services and domestic turboprops transfer to Sangley Airport.
