Roadgrip Airports have just completed a complex airfield grooving project at Mexico’s Cancun International Airport.

Using specialist slurry collecting grooving equipment from our global fleet, the expert team at Roadgrip have grooved 6mm x 6mm @ 38 mm centres to FAA specification on the high-speed rapid exit taxiways at this busy airport. The grooving work involved grooving of both concrete and flexible asphalt surfaces. Take a look at the planning involved in applying the grooves to the bends.

Due to the busy schedule of the airport, it was necessary to work at night with restricted possessions of the taxiways, minimising disruption to air traffic. Roadgrip was acting as principal contractor, providing a project management team and a turnkey delivery, including water and waste water management to the site.

Well done to the team for achieving such a high-quality grooving job. We look forward to returning to Mexico to commence further works in the autumn.

As the global experts in airfield grooving, we work on both runways and taxiways, with skill and high attention to detail. Please browse our other runway projects (including runway painting, AGL and rubber removal using Trackjet XL) to see more of our work on airports worldwide.
