Plans to build a replacement control tower announced

Plans to build a replacement control tower were announced by Newcastle International Airport last week. The 43m-high tower forms part of the airport's ongoing infrastructure development programme, which aims to support passenger growth. "This is a monumental improvement for us," said air traffic control manager Chris Davis. "The existing tower, which was completed in 1966, has served us well. However, a replacement is required to improve sight lines." The tower was designed by Reid Architecture with structural advice provided by Arup.
