DAA, the operator for Cork and Dublin Airports, has put €425m out to tender. The works comprise airfield and landside developments and may take up to 8 years to complete. Some of the projects include a vehicle underpass linking the eastern and western parts of the airfield, upgrading the electrical network serving the airport, new aircraft stands, rehabilitating parts of Dublin Airport's runway aprons and widening and extending airfield taxiways.
Some environmental aspects will be evaluated including the upgrade of airfield lighting systems to energy efficient LED fittings, new electrical charging points for vehicles and equipment operated by ground handling companies as well as public vehicles.
It is expected that the tendering process will be finished by November of 2021.
