Major expansion project at Bathurst Regional Airport progressing, executive director says

A multimillion dollar expansion project at the Bathurst Regional Airport is progressing.

Executive Director Jennifer Henry tells the Northern Light that the project appears to be running smoothly and that construction has not resulted in any issues with passengers.

Henry says the 276 metre extension to the airport's runway is nearly finished and adds terminal building renovations are about 40 per cent complete.

The renovation and expansion project is expected to wrap up by March 2018.
