Guernsey Airport control tower faces £300k repair bill

Colin Le Ray Colin Le Ray said they were not even contemplating building a new control tower

Work to fix cracks in Guernsey Airport's control tower are estimated to cost £300,000.

As part of the cost, the Airport Director Colin Le Ray said a range of options will be looked at to fix the problem.

The current building has been in operation since 1977.

Mr Le Ray said building a new control tower was not an option, and would not be cost effective.

He said: "What we are faced with is some deterioration of the surface of the coating of the building... not an uncommon occurrence with buildings that are largely clad with concrete."
