Step of the procedure

  • Decision and authorization


The Commission has decided not to subject the project to the environmental and social impact assessment procedure.


This project consists of temporarily installating and operating an asphalt plant and paving specific areas of the airport adjacent to the apron and part of its access road. The asphalt plant will be installed at the southern end of the airstrip along the range road. Once the work is completed, the emptied barrels will be crushed and stored in containers that will be sent south by the sealift to a metal recycler. Restoration of the site where the asphalt plant is to be installed will consist of removing the equipment and levelling the surface with clean agregates.
