West Australia Transport Minister Dean Nalder said the Kununurra runway, which was built in the 1960’s, had shown signs of deterioration and pavement deformities.
“A runway evaluation study revealed an upgrade was needed to strengthen the airstrip to better accommodate current and future aircraft traffic,” Nalder said.
Regional Development Minister Terry Redman said improved airport infrastructure played a vital role in supporting regional growth.
“This upgrade will provide greater opportunities for industry, tourism and economic development in regional Western Australia,” Redman said.
