“The redevelopment of Bendigo Airport is necessary to continue to support the emergency services including Air Ambulance and Department of Sustainability and Environment Airbase as well as elevate the airport to a regional status in keeping with a City the size and stature of Bendigo,” said Cr Fyffe following the announcement today of the design tenders for the Bendigo airport redevelopment.
The redevelopment of Bendigo Airport has moved another step forward with the City of Greater Bendigo awarding two separate tenders for the engineering design of a proposed new runway and a proposed Airport Business Park.
City of Greater Bendigo Mayor Cr Rod Fyffe said the awarding of both design tenders is important because it will provide the detail necessary to enable the physical upgrade of the airport.
“Local firm Tomkinson Group will undertake the Airport Business Park layout and engineering design in tandem with Aurecon Australia who have been appointed to prepare the proposed parallel runway and associated infrastructure design.
“The Business Park design includes a review of the present layout inline with the adopted Master Plan to cater for aviation and other airport compatible business,” said Cr Fyffe.
“Both firms will work closely with the City to establish accurate project costs and an appropriate staged development plan for the works to be undertaken in association with the Victorian Government and potentially the Australian Government.”
