    Australia Minister for Infrastructure Darren Chester stated (18-May-2017) Bendigo Airport is applying the “finishing touches” to its AUD15 million (USD11 million) redevelopment project. The project is scheduled to complete in late May-2017. As previously reported by CAPA, the project included development of a 1600m runway, associated taxiways, lighting, signage and fencing infrastructure, as well as strengthening existing apron and taxiways. The new runway allows the airport to accept freight aircraft carrying up to 30 tonnes or passenger aircraft carrying up to 75 people.
