Queues of up to 30 minutes are expected, with nearby residents likely to experience some noise.

  1. As well as cross border delays,m surely this will adversely affect the daily flights that come into and fly from Gibraltar airport. What will happen about these, and how will they work around it?

  2. Will this not also adversely affect flights in and out of Gibraltar Airport. How, if they are resurfacing the runway between 10am and 10pm, will flights be able to land and takeoff at the two prime time of 11am – 12 and 7 – 8pm

  3. And not the first resurfacing in 25 years, its been going on regularly at night both before and after the MOD passed the responsibility for the airport to the Gibraltar Government.
