Registration of Interest – Solomon Islands Provincial Airfield Upgrades – The New Zealand Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade – [DOC-4061682]
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade (MFAT) is inviting Registrations of Interest from suitably qualified and experienced Civil Contractors for pavement reconstruction and surfacing works, terminal buildings, and airfield ground lighting (AGL) works at selected regional airfield (or airport) locations in the Solomon Islands.
The regional airports planned for pavement, AGL and terminal works are;
- Seghe Airfield, New Georgia, Western Province
- Choiseul Bay Airfield, Taro Island, Choiseul Province
- Nusatupe Airfield, Gizo, Western Province (AGL Only)
Each of the first two nominated airfields have unsealed runways, taxiways and aircraft parking areas and suffer from reduced operational reliability and availability during wet weather which disrupts passenger services to these locations. In addition there is no terminal building for basic shelter and processing at Seghe Airfield.
Design works are complete for each of the airfields listed.
The funding priority is being assigned to Seghe and Choiseul Bay airfields for pavement works, with AGL and terminal works pending on the available funding. Anticipated construction period is late Q4 2020 to Q1 2022, pending intergovernmental approvals.
The works are taking place on very small islands in close proximity to the local communities.
