Okiwi's Vastly Improved Airfield

Okiwi's long wait for a sealed runway to serve northern Great Barrier Island is about to come to an end. The official opening of the sealed runway is scheduled to take place on Friday the 2nd of May at 10.00am. The contract for the sealing project was awarded to local contractor Coles Equipment last year. Work started in November 2013 with the installation of piping for drainage as well as barging metal into Port Fitzroy for the foundation for the sealed runway. In the week leading up to Easter contractors were doing the final preparation for the sealing and clearing away the mountains of fill that have been stockpiled from the excavations.
