Crews resurface Manchester Airport runway at night


A team of 150 workers is working through the night to resurface one of the two runways at Manchester Airport.

The airport is replacing all the runway lights, cabling and landing surface along the entire 3km (1.9 mile) length of Runway 1 at a cost of £21m.

To minimise disruption, all the work is taking place at night with take-offs and landings resuming at 0600 BST each morning.

The resurfacing work - the airport's biggest engineering project since the construction of Runway 2 - is due to finish on 26 September.
