At Brussels Airport runway 25 left is currently closed for renovation. In a second stage the intersection of runways 25L/07R and 01/19 will also be thoroughly renovated.
Work started on Wednesday 27 May and is scheduled to end on 7 September. Runways have to be thoroughly renovated every 30 years to guarantee the safety of aircraft landing or taking off.
Transport Minister Jacqueline Galant visited the site on Friday morning.
"These are very important works that need to be carried out. Unfortunately, they cannot be carried out without closing the runways, but safety always comes first", said Minister Galant.
