As the 14thbusiest airport in Europe, Dublin International Airport in Ireland needs regular maintenance to ensure optimum safety standards for the heavy flow of air traffic. The Roadgrip Airports Division were brought in to paint the runway and to carry out essential runway grooving.
With Ireland experiencing rain and snow frequently during the colder months, runway grooving is a necessary requirement to reduce the risk of hydroplaning. After we cut the grooves, channels are formed in the runway, which allows the water to escape, rather than pooling on the surface.
Our team carried out the works over limited possessions behind the asphalt train, which was particularly challenging through the winter months but not unfamiliar to our expert airports team.
