Roadgrip Airports have completed a comprehensive runway refurbishment project at Anguilla-Clayton J. Lloyd Airport in the Caribbean. Works included runway grooving and airfield painting.

This is our third visit to the beautiful, paradise island of Anguilla in 20 years – and certainly one of our favourites.

Runway grooving

This time, our global team were contracted to groove 54000 m2 of runway to FAA specification 6mm x 6mm @ 38mm centres. Whilst the island doesn’t experience as much rainfall as others, the climate is tropical and grooving is still necessary to maintain safety levels during the rainy season. Grooving also helps to reduce stopping distances in dry weather too. Learn more about the benefits of grooving here: Which method of airfield grooving is best and why?

Airfield painting

When the grooving was complete, we applied airfield pavement markings to TTP1952 specifications using water-based acrylic paints and type 3 beads for increased night time visibility.

Quality workmanship despite restrictions

Despite the expected struggles with Covid restrictions, the Roadgrip Caribbean team completed the works within just three visits over three months. Well done to all those involved.

We have teams situated around the world and can mobilise our fleet of equipment and experts fast. Take a look at our recent projects for large international airports and domestic airfields here: Roadgrip Airports
