The Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) said it will from Friday June 7, 2019, close the Murtala Muhammed International Airport’s Apron Gate 1 and some sections of Taxiway F to human and vehicular traffic for six weeks.
This closure, it said is to enable the contractor handling the construction of the new terminal (China Civil Construction Company) link the proposed apron under construction to the existing one.
To maintain orderliness and ensure safety of operators while the project would last, the Authority said it has developed and deployed specific procedures for vehicular movements and officers of the Aviation Security department have been mobilized to ensure compliance.
“The Authority will like to solicit the understanding and cooperation of all concerned towards ensuring a safe airside for aircraft movement and personnel safety during the construction”, it said in a statement .
