Delta Slots at Zurich Airport

Project Description

The aim of the project was to straighten the “Echo” runway and broaden the “Delta” slots. This required the relocation of the existing Weststrasse and Werkhofstrasse in one phase, as well as the relocation of the handling and runway area.

The asphalt surface of the “Echo” runway and a part of the “Delta” slots also had to be renewed.

This work – carried out by two teams simultaneously – required a detailed planning of procedures, in some cases construction work at 15 minute intervals, and strict adherence to the schedule to ensure smooth air traffic.

The load-bearing capacity of the existing subsoil was insufficient in places , which is why it had to be stabilised. The concrete surface was mainly installed mechanically with the slip form paver.

Special Features of the Project

Paving had to be carried out in small steps to prevent any rising of the SBB tunnel after removal of the superstructure.

Part of the work had to be carried out during the night flight ban.
